Rolled Up in Goodness

The other day I went to Target and sifted through their dollar section and found some fun new pieces to incorporate into my pictures.  I couldn’t wait to use them so this morning I got my creative juices flowing to make something delicious, low calorie, and beautiful. I think I did all that! These healthy stuffed French toasts are perfect addition to your Sunday brunch and won’t make you worried about being in a bathing suit next week!

Ingredients:

  • 3 pieces whole wheat bread
  • 1 egg
  • 1 splash soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon espresso liquor
  • 1 pinch cinnamon

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut
  • Pinch of cinnamon

How to:

  1. Begin by making the filling. In a food processor mix the oats, pecans, coconut, coconut oil, and cinnamon pulse for a few times until finely ground.
  2. Take a rolling pin and roll out the bread until thin.
  3. In a shallow long bowl mix the egg, milk, cinnamon, and espresso in a bowl until well mixed.
  4. Fill one side with the filling and then roll it up tightly.
  5. Let the rolls soak in the egg mixture for 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Cook like normal French toast but rolling it so each side gets cooked.
  7. I drizzled with syrup and cranberries and enjoyed!
