Whole Wheat French Toast With Agave Glazed Figs


  1. 1 loaf whole wheat bread uncut
    8 whole eggs
    ¼ cup low fat cream
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tbsp butter
    1 tbsp agave syrup
    8 whole figs, cut into quarters


  1. Cut the bread into approx. 3cm thick slices.
  2. In a bowl mix together the eggs, cream and cinnamon. Transfer to a shallow baking tray.
  3. Cut the fresh figs into quarters and set aside. Heat a pan to medium heat and add the butter and figs. Sauté for 2-3 minutes and add the agave syrup. Remove from heat.
  4. Dip the whole wheat bread into the egg mixture on both sides (approx. 2-3 seconds per side).
  5. Put a nonstick pan on medium heat. Cook till nicely browned on both sides. Transfer to a plate and top with figs.

Note: Purchase pure maple syrup, not the pancake syrup. Pancake syrup contains unhealthy sugars and chemicals.
