Add antioxidant rich berries to your breakfast with this great meal idea

Enjoy this berry compote on French toast using your favourite fresh or frozen berries—strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries.


  • 1 cup mixed berries
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp low-fat milk
  • 4 slices fruit and muesli bread or fruit loaf, preferably wholegrain
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup


  1. Put the berries in a small saucepan and gently heat until the berries are warm and have softened.
  2. Meanwhile, break the eggs into a flat dish, add milk and whisk with a fork to combine. Add slices of bread and coat well with the egg mixture on both sides.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and dry-fry two slices of bread at a time for about 3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Repeat with remaining 2 slices.
  4. Cut bread in half and serve topped with the warm berries and 2 teaspoons of maple syrup drizzled over the top.
