Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6 slices
  • 2 eggs (or ½ cup egg whites)
  • ¼ cup milk , low-fat (or almond milk)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 slices whole wheat Artisan bread
  • 1 ripe pear, sliced
  • ½ cup pomegranate arils (seeds)
  • 1 Tablespoon agave nectar
  • Honey or maple syrup (optional)
  1. In a shallow pan, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Soak bread in a single layer in the egg mixture, turning once. Let stand in egg mixture so the liquid is absorbed, about 2-3 min. per side.
  2. Spray a large fry pan (or griddle) with non-stick spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add bread slices and cook until golden brown, approx. 3-4 min. per side. Transfer to a warm platter and cover with aluminum foil. Repeat with remaining bread.
  3. While bread is cooking prepare the pear and pomegranates. In a small saucepan on medium-low, combine pears, pomegranate arils (seeds) and agave and sauté until pears have softened (approx. 5 min.)
  4. Top French toast with sautéed pears and pomegranate and drizzle with honey, maple syrup or additional agave (if desired).
