(basic recipe)


Here we have a delightful healthy breakfast of 100% whole grain French toast, syrup and blackberries.


This recipe consists of 8 ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup of blackberries
  • Syrup of choice
  • 1 tbsp extra light virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices of regular size 100% whole grain bread

♥ Chef Ann’s Note: If you use really large or thick slices of bread you make need to increase the amount of your ingredients a bit.


Preparations before cooking
  • Start off with placing your blackberries in a small bowl of cold water. Allow them to soak for a few minutes and rinse them several times before placing them on a paper towel to dry.
  • In a medium size bowl pour your milk and add the eggs, vanilla and cinnamon.
  • Use a whisk to whip the ingredients well.
Cooking preparation
  • In a large skillet add enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan at medium high temperature.
  • Do not add your bread until your skillet is hot.
  • Now place your slices of bread in your mixture of liquid one slice at a time, making sure to coat both sides before placing in the skillet.
  • Allow each side to brown evenly before removing from skillet to a plate or platter.
Serving preparation
  • When all of your slices have browned, begin to slice vertically.
  • Depending on the size of your bread you may have 12-16 strips.

Preparation time: approximately 25 minutes Cooking time: 7-10 minutes Total time: up to 35 minutes Servings: 2-4
