Skinny Single Serving Pumpkin French Toast
Thanks Eggland’s Best for sponsoring this post and recipe for Skinny Single Serving Pumpkin French Toast. Easy, yummy and cozy – I want this breakfast every weekend for the rest of my life. Just picture waking up to this pumpkin French toast on a cool, fall morning. Comfort food heaven at its finest!
What’s better than regular French toast? Pumpkin French toast, of course. Such a great breakfast change-up for fall too. Can you smell that deliciousness? The smell of this French toast will get you out of bed faster than any alarm clock.
Cooking up this meal could not be easier and, of course, I used my favorite brand of eggs, Eggland’s Best (EB). It’s no surprise EB is the number 1 branded egg in the U.S.! It’s an excellent source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and Riboflavin. In fact, EB eggs have six times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3, 10 times more vitamin E and 25 percent less saturated fat than ordinary eggs. Independent testing has also confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs. Wow, EB, I’m impressed!
It gets even better. From now until December 22, EB is calling on fans across the U.S. to enter their city to win a visit from the EB Better Egg Truck. Fans can enter once per day, and share on Facebook or Twitter for an additional bonus entry. One lucky fan will also be selected at random from the winning city to receive an exclusive Better Brunch from the EB Better Egg Food Truck for them and their closest friends. You can visit the Eggland’s Best website to find more information on how to enter and for official rules.
Go and grab two slices of your favorite bread and get them soaking in a creamy mix of egg, pumpkin and spices. Pop them on a griddle or in a skillet and let them cook to golden perfection. Topping your French toast is the best part, though. I remember when I was little and I loved my French toast with powdered sugar and maple syrup, but these days I go for a little Greek yogurt, chopped pecans and pancake syrup. Perfection!
This season, you seriously don’t want to miss out on this yummy pumpkin French toast. Who am I kidding? The entire year you don’t want to miss out on this French toast! Luckily, canned pumpkin is available year round!
You guys are going to love this recipe. Beyond being healthy, this skinny French toast also tastes amazing! The pumpkin flavor shines through without being too intense and it’s a morning meal that’s wholesome and satisfying without being too heavy and rich. With a little maple or pancake syrup it’s the perfect level of sweetness, in my opinion.

**This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled if serving a crowd.
