Cinnamon Raisin French Toast with Six Spice Summer Peaches

By Samantha Binkley

This is what weekends are made for! I really love cinnamon raisin bread. It’s such a treat when toasted with a little bit of homemade jam. But this recipe is taking it to a whole other level with the stewed peaches and maple syrup. Since I am always overrun with eggs from my chickens, this is another fabulous recipe I can make to help use them.

This recipe is really delicious and the Healthy On You® Spice Spice Baby Asian 6 Spice blend makes it memorable…really! Cinnamon, anise, and ginger flavors make every bite incredibly satisfying too. The topping, spiced-up stewed peaches is also a winner on its very own. Definitely go make this for brunch this weekend. You can thank me later!
