If you have a picky eater like my Munchkin, then you probably understand how hard it is to convince his/her strong willed mind to try new fruits/veggies. We have tried just about EVERYTHING to get Munchkin to try 1-2 bites of foods, but so far Munchkin has not expanded the list of “likes” very much. The short list of fruits/veggies on the “like” list include: Bananas, Applesauce, and Carrots. Which means that we are now “hiding” fruit/veggies in foods. I first got the idea from a cookbook that my cousin gave me called Deceptively Delicious.

I modified the recipe in this cookbook for French Toast to fit my family’s preferences and came up with this. 🙂

1. First, you will need a place a griddle (or frying pan) on the stovetop on medium heat. Then, I use 4 tablespoons of pumpkin puree that I buy and freeze in 2 Tbsp servings (shown above). If using frozen pumpkin puree, place in microwave to soften.

2. Once softened, smash the pumpkin puree. Now you are ready for the other ingredients!

3. Add six eggs and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the pumpkin puree and whisk until smooth. Dip bread (I use Homemade Bread) in the mixture for about 5 seconds on each side and place on griddle.
