Recipes I’ve Tried: Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Bread

One of the toughest things for me in regards to eating clean is staying away from sugary,carby sweets.  I am always searching for new, healthy and sweet recipes to try. So when I came across Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Bread I had to try it, especially when she claimed it makes an excellent french toast substitute.  I have to admit she was absolutely right!  This recipe is soooo yummy.  I have been having this for breakfast for the past week with my eggs.  I grill it in a pan with non stick spray and pour some sugar free syrup (IHop brand) over the top.  Each time I eat this, I feel like I am eating something I should not be, but if you look at the nutritional facts, it fits right into any clean eating plan. I will outline the nutritional value of one serving size, as well as the recipe I used below:
