In this video on clean eating Arielle Haspel shows you how to make a super healthy and delicious version of French toast. Instead of bread, she uses brown rice cakes.
First, she whisks up the eggs and then adds a little bit of almond milk. She uses almond milk instead of dairy to make the mixture a little creamier. She then adds the rice cakes to the egg mixture and lets them soak for a few minutes. As a great alternative to butter and other oils, Arielle then adds coconut oil to a heated pan. Coconut oil is high heat so you can use it when baking, cooking, and sauteing.
Next, she places the rice cakes in the pan and lets them cook until they are brown on each side, which is about 2-3 minutes on each side. She then sprinkles a little bit of sea salt and cinnamon to bring out the French toast flavors. If you want it sweeter, feel free to add a sweetener like maple syrup.
Once they’re a little golden brown on each side, take them out of the pan and add a little sea salt, cinnamon and maple syrup as toppings. Enjoy your healthy rice snack and be sure to send us all your homemade creations!
