I’ve done it. I’ve inspired someone to make something homemade and wholesome.
Today, I came home from getting groceries and walked into the best smell there is. Cinnamon.
Thomas informs me that I am one lucky lady (of which, I already know)…lucky to have walked into the house now and not 10 or even 5 minutes later because he has conconcted…wait for it… CASHEW ENCRUSTED FRENCH TOAST.
Is this not a totally genius idea?! I had never thought of it. Who wouldn’t want a super delicious way to get more protein and nutrients?
So, here’s what he did:
Grind a half cup of cashews in a food processor or a coffee grinder. Mix that with 1 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla protein powder.
Dip a slice whole wheat bread into the egg and then coat with the cashew mixture. Saute in a frying pan, low to medium heat.
I was lucky because I got to taste the best french toast, sprinked with powdered sugar and slathered with maple syrup, but also because I got to witness my husband feeling great about the fact that he could just whip something up from scratch and make it nutritious and oh. so. delicious.
We are totally going to be playing around with this idea…maybe use a thick Texas toast or maybe instead of cashews we could use almonds…the options are endless.
