Then something happened. I ran out of oats. Necessity breads innovation, so I was forced to create a different breakfast meal.
Wow am I glad I ran out of oats.
The inspiration behind this breakfast was the crate of blackberries that came in my CSA box this week. I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my breakfast someway and this is what I came up with.
This breakfast is deceivingly less sinful than it appears. It’s decadent and satisfying, yet surprisingly healthy. Not bad for a breakfast of French Toast!
It’s also just as quick as making a bowl of oatmeal. Easy, delicious, and healthy? Sorry, oatmeal. There’s a new breakfast in town and it’s going to be making an appearance on my plate more often.Print
I wish I would have taken a picture of the inside of this creation, because just looking at the outside doesn’t do it justice. The small amount of cream cheese was just enough to blend with the warm fruit and create a delicious center to the slices of golden French toast. It was incredible for such a simple breakfast.
Sadly, my little fruit monster, Meghan, already devoured the rest of the blackberries, so I can’t make this again until I get some more. I’m thinking an extra trip to the grocery store is in order.
