Pumpkin Pecan French Toast

We had a sleepover last night with my nephew, sister-in-law & her boyfriend. I wanted to make a fall breakfast and this cannot be anymore fallish with puréed pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice!

The original recipe called for 8 eggs and I swapped out those for liquid egg whites to cut some of the fat.

This recipe yields 12 servings 

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30-35 minutes


1 pound of whole wheat bread (dried)

1 1/2 cups of liquid egg whites

1 Tablesppon of pumpkin pie spice

2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups of pumpkin purée

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup


2 tablespoon of raw sugar

1 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/4 cup chopped finely pecans


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Cooking spray 9 by 13 baking dish & set aside.

3. Cube up bread into 1 inch pieces & scatter in greased 9 by 13 pan. Set aside.

4. In a large bowl whisk egg whites,vanilla,spice, pumpkin purée, and maple syrup. Pour over bread and mix to coat well. Set aside.

5. In a small bowl mix butter, sugar, pecans,and flour. Sprinkle evenly over bread.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack until ready to serve.

7. If your guests would like they can  always add Extra Maple Syrup.

Grapes & Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt

This is a great breakfast, snack or side to any lunch! This dish is packed with protein with an entire cup of Plain Greek Nonfat Yogurt & 2 Tablespoons of PB2.

If you are taking this to lunch I may suggest freezing the grapes to keep the yogurt cool until your lunch break.

Serving size one (sorry no sharing here)


1 cup of Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt

2 TB PB2 ( I like using one of chocolate PB2 and one of the original)

1 packet of true lime or pinch of fresh lime juice

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 packet of truvia (optional)

1 cup of seedless grapes

Dash of Vietnesmeese ground cinnamon


1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a 1 pint glass bowl. Mix together well with a mini rubber spatula.

2. Scatter the grapes ontop of the yogurt and sprinkle with cinnamon.

3. Place a lid over the top and place the yogurt back in the refrigerator or enjoy right away. Before diving in stir the grapes into the yogurt! If you let the grapes sit overnight some of the fruit juice with leak into the yogurt which will make the yogurt thin out a little and that is perfectly normal. Just make sure to stir. Enjoy!
