Raspberry Peanut Butter
French Toast
Raspberry Peanut Butter French Toast

I woke up with a voracious appetite but, I still want something healthy! So this is what a came up with.  You might say it's a twisted version of Elvis's favourite food item!!

1 cup milk or non dairy beverage
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
4 slices whole wheat sandwich bread
natural peanut butter
2 tbsp chia seeds, separated (flax can be used)
1 pkg. fresh raspberries (any berry can be used)
extra virgin olive oil (butter can be used) for skillet

In a large bowl beat milk, egg, cinnamon and vanilla with a fork.  Set aside

Place a skillet on the stove and preheat on medium.

Spread some peanut butter on all the slices of bread, sprinkle with 1 tbsp chia seeds.  Top with washed raspberries, and top with slice of bread pressing together gently.

Dip sandwich into egg mixture, using a fork carefully turn sandwich over to coat both sides. 

Place sandwich into greased skillet and cook to golden brown on both sides.

Repeat for other sandwich.
Sprinkle with icing sugar if desired and enjoy with your choice of syrup. 

I used agave syrup which is made from a plant and does not increase your blood sugar level and is better for your glycemic index level.
