Weekend Brunch Alert: Low Fat Pumpkin French Toast

Sometimes there is nothing better than sleeping in and cooking a late brunch for the family (or your post-bar hopping friends). One of our favorite blogs The Minimalist Baker combined the flavors of October (pumpkins!) with the traditional breakfast French toast to create a totally delectable and according to TMB not too fattening at just 120 calories per slice weekend treat. The batter is super easy: seven free-range eggs, 2 cups of milk, teaspoon of vanilla extract, two scoops of pumpkin butter (Trader Joe’s has a seasonal pumpkin butter) and some shakes of pumpkin pie spice (TJ’s again!). Pour the batter over cubes of raisin bread in a casserole dish. Leave overnight. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Pumpkin is also a super healthy vegetable with high levels of vitamins A, C and E.
