For a slight change of pace today we have a fabulous breakfast recipe from “The Real Housewives of Miami” star Ana Quincoces.  Growing up in a Cuban household, Ana developed a passoion for cooking at a young age. Today I’m happy to share her twist on French Toast.  This is a Multigrain French Toast with Almonds and a Light Guava Maple Syrup.

Multigrain French Toast with Almonds and Light Guava Maple Syrup


1 cup slivered almonds

3 eggs

1 cup milk

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

12 thick slices of whole wheat or multigrain bread

3 tablespoons light butter (made from canola oil)

Confectioners’ sugar for dusting

For Syrup:

1 cup of reduced sugar (light) maple syrup

¼ cup guava marmalade


Place almonds in a small sauté pan over low heat. Tossing frequently, toast until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt, baking powder, almond extract and vanilla extract. Soak bread slices in the mixture until saturated.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. One at a time, press one side of soaked bread slices in the almonds to coat. Fry bread slices on both sides until golden brown. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.

In a microwave-safe container, combine syrup and guava marmalade. Whisk until combined and warm. Serve over French toast.
