I look forward to pomegranate season every year, which starts in October and goes through January. The seeds of the fruit, called arils, are so crunchy and juicy. They're healthy, too: They're bursting with antioxidants and satiating fiber.

 

One of my favorite foods is French toast (you might have noticed the many other French toast recipes on my site, such as my Protein-Rich Cherry French Toast and my Baked Butternut Squash French Toast). So I thought why not add one of my favorite fall foods to one of my most-loved breakfast eats. 

I played around in the kitchen this morning and came up with the ultimate fall-flavor French toast. First, I whisked some eggs and combined them with almond milk, pomegranate juice, and nutmeg. Wondering if eggs are nutritious? They are! Get the truth about eggs and cholesterol, and don't hesitate to whip up my avocado deviled eggs recipe.

 

While I started cooking up my French toast, I began pan heating pomegranate arils and pecans with pomegranate juice.

The pomegranate arils, pomegranate juice, and vanilla extract offer plenty of sweetness without the need for any added sugarand the juice adds a moistness that replaced the need for syrup. I served the finished product to my boyfriend (who loves pomegranate season, too), and he was a huge fan.
