As long as I have this blog, you will continue to see my favorite French Toast combinations… God, I love my stacks so much. So many possibilities, so many flavors, so many options. It will never get old! Last week, I grabbed a big bag of Andes Peppermint Crunch mints to keep i a candy dish by our front door (this is a holiday candy favorite in our house)! Ripping one open before I even got out of Target immediately inspired me to turn that flavor into a glorious French Toast stack.
Turned out better than I could have even dreamed…. feast your eyes on this!
Same basic recipe, just added a bit of peppermint extract for the flavor, cacao, whipped cream for some extra yummy sweetness, and a sprinkling of the chopped Andes Peppermint Crunch mints or course. Simply divine. I made this particular stack last week and have already had it 3 more times!!! It’s that good! Can’t get enough! Perfect with a nice hot cup of hot chocolate or a mocha!
Holidays or not, this French Toast combination will be enjoyed ALL year long (better stock up on those Andes chocolates ASAP)!

|Cook time||5 minutes|
|Total time||15 minutes|

|Combine first six ingredients together in a large bowl (egg, egg whites, stevia, vanilla, almond milk, cacao powder) until well combined.|
|Soak bread in egg mixture for 5-10 minutes most/all liquid is absorbed.|
|Pre heat skillet and coat with non stick spray.|
|Cook slices of bread for 2-3 minutes on medium high heat until each side is golden brown.|
|Prepare topping by combining protein, water, and extract. Add water slowly until you get the consistency you like. I like mine a little thicker than regular syrup.|
