Pumpkin French Toast

This Pumpkin French Toast is the perfect choice for an autumn breakfast.  I love using a sprouted raisin bread to pair with the pumpkin flavor, but you can of course choose any type of bread you like!

As for the toppings, you can certainly go classic and top with maple syrup and butter OR try it my favorite way and give it a fat schmear of almond butter over the top! #yumscrum.
