They say… “the way to the heart is through the stomach”! I happen to totally agree : )
(especially if it entails dark chocolate!)
Cooking for me is an expression of love. It’s the way I say, “I love you” to the people in my life… healthy balanced meals for my family because I love and care about them. Having a hard day?… then a plate of cookies will surely make it all better! (my friends secretly hate this about me!)
I love to cook AND I love to cook for the people I love so, for Valentines morning I thought of this cute and healthy Valentine French Toast to say, “I love you!”
Valentine French Toast
10 pieces of whole grain bread
1/2 C milk
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 C greek yogurt
heart shaped cookie cutter
In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients except bread, beat until combined. Lay bread out on a flat surface, place heart cookie cutter on 1 slice, press. Turn slice over and press the heart through the cutter. Repeat with remaining slices. Cooking spray a fry pan or griddle and warm over medium heat. When pans hot, dip both sides of bread in egg mixture. Place on griddle and cook 1-2 minutes per side. Serve with 1 Tbsp greek yogurt, a sprinkle of cinnamon/sugar, and strawberries. Serves 6
*Here’s another idea for the leftover cut out bread slices: Cook them as directed above, once it’s turned over crack an egg into the whole and cover with a lid. Bake for 2 minutes for an easy-over french dipped toast!!
Valentine French Toast is a cute way to say “I Love You” on Valentine’s morning! Of course any other day of the year you can EX the heart shaped cookie cutters and just have Cinnamon Sugar French Toast… It’s easy to make and the ingredients are always around!
Your loved ones will feel very LOVED with Valentine French Toast!
