French toast is one of those foods I love but so rarely let myself enjoy. Especially during those years ago when I thought I had to swear off everything deemed with a “carb” in it. Silly Britt. Our bodies run off from the energy GOOD carbs give us!

I also rarely have time to eat a warm delicious breakfast during the week, let alone the time to make it. So it’s my absolute favorite thing to enjoy a leisurely breakfast on weekend mornings.

I figured why not again, make my life simple with a clean and easy breakfast I can reheat for mornings on the go! The star ingredient in these delicious, adorable muffins–> Ezekiel Bread.

How how I love you Ezekiel Bread. Real. Nutty. GOOD for your carbs. None of that fluffy sticky fake white bread stuff.
