French Toast with Mixed Berries and Pear Topping

Any type of bread can be used, for today I used brown rice bread, which is gluten free. A variety of fruits can be used, this sauce was made with frozen strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, and a pear.

French Toast with Mixed Berries and Pear
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 grates of fresh nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together in a pie pan and set aside.

For berry sauce:
1/2 cup mixed berries
1 small pear, cored, skinned and diced
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 inch of fresh ginger peeled

topped with berries and whipped cream

6 slices bread
1 Tablespoon butter
whipped cream (optional)

In a small saucepan, over low heat, combine berries, pear, maple syrup, orange juice, and ginger. Heat several minutes until softened and liquid is reduced. Remove ginger. Keep warm.
Soak bread in egg mixture for several minutes, remove and set aside.
Add 1 Tablespoon of butter in a large non-stick pan over medium high heat. Place coated bread in pan and cook each side 2-3 minutes until caramelized.
Remove bread to serving plate and top with berry sauce.
Top with whipped cream, if desired.
