A lovely Mother’s Day treat! 🙂
French Toast in a Mug
Serves 1 = 1CC, ¼ Milk, 1 Prot, 1 Fruit
1.5 slices Albany Ultima Bread, cut into bite sized pieces
¼ cup fat free milk
¼ teaspoon mixed spice
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
A pinch of salt
1 sachet sweetener
In a microwavable mug, mix egg, milk, honey, spices, raisins and salt together well (otherwise the egg will separate). Add bread pieces and press it down until submerged within the liquid. Microwave for 2 minutes in total – stopping every 30 seconds for 10 seconds (so that it doesn’t boil over) – make sure you use a large enough mug. Let it cool for a couple of minutes, sprinkling additional cinnamon on top if preferred.
Although it is the middle of summer here, I have been missing the smells of Christmas – spices, honey and cinnamon! One of my favourite breakfasts just have to be ‘Overnight Oats’ (see previous post, and more to follow!), and I was wondering how I would be able to add those warm flavours with the oats and yogurt. I often add grated apple and cinnamon, but I wanted something ‘heavier’ – if that makes sense! LOL!
So, here’s a very basic “Sugar-free Apple Pie Sauce” recipe.
Apple Pie Sauce: Simmer 400g chopped apples with 3 cinnamon sticks, 1/2 teaspoon of Mixed Spice and 2 teaspoons honey. Top up with a bit of water if needed. Cook on slow heat until soft, cool off and blitz (remove cinnamon sticks first) to smooth sauce. Makes 4 portions – depending on how “stiff” it is, about 2 – 3 heaped tablespoons per serving.
This is great with the Overnight Oats (mixed with raw oats, plain yogurt and left overnight for all the ingredients to ‘blend’), as well as a quick and healthy dessert for kids – served with custard. Also try it stirred into cooked oats, add it to a smoothie (blended with milk/yogurt and banan) or mixed with muesli!
