Flaxseed-Apple-Battered French Toast with Warm Apple Compote

Serves 4
Flaxseeds give this morning meal an egg-like quality without added cholesterol. The compote is a perfect complement and easy to make, too.

Batter
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1/2 cup applesauce
2 cups calcium-fortified soymilk
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
8 thick slices whole-grain bread, stale or air-dried overnight
1/4 cup oil (optional)

Warm Apple Compote
3 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into1/4-inch-thick slices
1 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup or Sucanat
1 teaspoon minced orange zest
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

To make the batter: Combine flaxseeds, applesauce, soymilk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sea salt in a blender and puree until smooth. Place in a large shallow bowl. Dip 2 slices of bread at a time into the batter to coat evenly. In a large sauté pan or skillet, cook the bread in the oil over medium heat on both sides until lightly brown. Or, cook the bread in a dry nonstick pan. Repeat with the remaining bread.

For the warm apple compote: In a large nonreactive saucepan, combine all the compote ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the liquid reduces to a light syrup, about 15 minutes. Serve warm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Serve 2 slices per serving with 1/4 cup of the apple compote.
