Flaxseed Apple Batter French Toast with Fruit Compote 

Flaxseed is a good source of dietary fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and lignans.

Ingredients
Fruit Compote
¼ cup orange juice
¼ cup pineapple juice
¼ cup diced fresh pineapple
¼ cup peeled and diced apple
1 tsp grated orange peel
1 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves

French Toast
1 Tbs ground flax seeds
3 Tbs apple butter
¾ cup soy milk
pinch ground or grated nutmeg
pinch ground cinnamon
pinch salt
1 tsp canola oil
4 large slices multigrain bread (about 3/4-inch thick)

Directions
In a medium saucepan, bring juices to a boil. Add pineapple, apple, and orange peel and cook until fruit is soft. Add mint. Set aside.

Combine ground flax seeds, apple butter, soy milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt in a blender and mix until smooth. Transfer to shallow pan.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium and add canola oil. Dip both sides of bread into soy milk mixture and transfer to hot pan. Repeat for remaining slices. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Reheat fruit compote and serve ¼ cup with 1 slice French toast.

Yield: 4 servings
