Macadamia Nut French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup GFCF milk
  • 1/2 tsp. GFCF vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf GFCF 16 bread slices
  • 1/2 cup GFCF margarine, melted
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped

Preparation:

  • Combine eggs and next 5 ingredients, stirring well
  • Fit bread slices in a single layer into a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish 
  • Pour egg mixture over bread slices; cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight, turning bread once
  • Pour margarine into a 15x10x1-inch pan; lay bread slices in a single layer in the pan
  • Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes; sprinkle with macadamia nuts
  • Bake for 10 additional minutes

Notes:

Macadamia nuts are considered a superfood. Here are five reasons why you should not only make this twisted classic, but add Macadamia nuts to your dishes wherever you can implement them:

    1. Macadamia nuts are a great source of antioxidants and flavonoids, which aid against inflammation.
    2. Macadamia nuts provide Tocotrienols, which are a form of vitamin E. This helps prevent some types of cancer and may also help lower your cholesterol.
    3. A single serving of macadamia nuts contains dietary fiber, manganese, thiamin, protein, and copper. 
    4. Macadamia nuts are abundant with monounsaturated fats, which can help reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. Monounsaturated fats have also been linked to increased heart health which can lower the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
    5. The soluble fiber provided from macadamia nuts can function as a prebiotic, which helps feed the bacteria in your gut that produce short-chain fatty acids, which ultimately can lead to reduced inflammation and reduced symptoms for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

    It doesn’t take very long to make and toasting the Macadamia nuts before adding them can really set this recipe apart from all others I’ve tried. The flavor of the nuts is simply incomparable.

    Macadamia nut trees are so cool! They are tall growing evergreens that can survive in landscapes with harsh conditions. Also considered one of the healthiest tree species on the planet.
