You have my mom to thank for this genius idea. French Toast in a Bowl (only the most popular recipe on my website) + pumpkin and spice = autumnal awesomeness.
I got home from work around lunch time the other day and she immediately pounces on me with, “I’ve been waiting for you to get home! I made the most awesome recipe this morning and I want you to try it!” My mother does not normally make up recipes. She lets me take care of that, and then if she likes them, she’s the one who makes them after that because I very rarely make the same recipe twice (notable exceptions being French Toast in a Bowl and this Peanut Butter Milkshake. Coincidentally, they both involve peanut butter, which is no surprise to those of you who know the Thomas family.). But this time, my mom was in the mood for pumpkin, so she tweaked my original French Toast in a Bowl recipe with a fall flair. And it’s awesome. She didn’t want me to include her name in this, but since a good food blogger always gives proper credit where credit is due…thanks, Mom.
There’s a whole host of toppings that you could put on this. I used this Pumpkin Spice Syrup, some sugar free maple syrup (here’s a link for making your own), and a squirt of Reddi-Whip. Check out the recipe below for other suggestions.
My mom used 3 T of oat fiber and 1 T golden flaxmeal as the flour in this, and I tested it with my Baking Mix. Both are great options! I haven’t tried this, but I bet you could also make it with THM Baking Blend; I’d use 4-5 T.
You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- 1 egg
- 1 T salted butter, softened
- 2 T plain pumpkin puree
- ¼ cup water
- 4 T Briana's Baking Mix *or* 3 T oat fiber and 1 T golden flaxmeal
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- Pinch salt
- 2 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.), or more, to taste
- Dash of vanilla extract
- Suggested toppings: almond milk, Truvia, whipped cream, fat free Reddi-Whip, butter, cream cheese, Pumpkin Spice Syrup, sugar free maple syrup, pecans
- Mix together all the ingredients (except for topping ingredients) and microwave for 1½ - 2 minutes or until the top is not quite dry in the middle (adjust to your liking). Top with your choice of toppings (see suggestions above).
- If you don't intend to top this with additional sweetener or a sweet syrup, I recommend adding a little more sweetener to the batter itself.
- Alternately this could be baked in an oven-safe ramekin at 350 degrees F until the top is not quite dry in the middle.
- Oat Fiber
- Golden Flaxmeal
- Gluten Free Oat Fiber and THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder can be purchased from the Trim Healthy Mama online store.
