French toast: this screams nostalgia if you ask me. When I was at my grandma’s place, I always got this for breakfast with lots of sugar, apples and a glass of milk. I never forgot how much I enjoyed eating this.. And hello?! Why wasn’t a healthy alternative available on the Foodie-ness blog until now? Not only is this an easy recipe, I’m pretty sure you already have all the ingredients ready in your kitchen.
