Toast Tuesday with a French twist. ūüôā

I absolutely LOVE french toast.

There was a time in my life when I ate french toast Every morning for two years… That is no joke. It was the same french toast stuffed with greek yogurt, sunflower seed butter, and banana slices, topped with sugar free maple syrup.

Even though that combo is insanely delicious, I was stuck in a french toast rut.

French Toast rut no more! Well, since the beginning of 2016.
