French toast is one of my all time favorites. I love the idea of bread dipped in batter and then fried to a crispy golden brown.

Add some fall flavors (cinnamon, pumpkin), bourbon maple syrup & life gets even sweeter.

Sexy bottle, sexy syrup.

I mean what could be better then pure sweet maple syrup mixed with my favorite spirit ~ bourbon.

A while ago I posted Pumpkin Ricotta Stuffed French Toast ~ you might want to give that a try too!

Use your favorite whole grain or gluten free bread in this recipe.

Mix up the batter with whisked egg, pumpkin pie spice, a splash of cream or milk & some pumpkin purée.

Dip the bread until it absorbs the batter & yummy flavors.

Fry it all up in butter or coconut oil (both different, both tasty.)

Don’t forget a runny egg or two & extra maple syrup for dipping.

And maybe some freshly whipped cream.

Great comforting breakfast and I love pairing pumpkin with coconut oil (will take that over the butter any day!) Pinned!
