    gourmetmomma's Note:

    This uses Orange Puree (a mixture of carrots and sweet potatoes) to boost the nutrition of traditional French Toast. Since the puree has a mildly sweet flavor, this actually yields a slightly sweeter French Toast than normal. This is adapted from the awesome book "the sneaky chef" which focuses on adding nutrition to everyday recipes for kids and other picky eaters. If you don't have time to make your own pureed carrots and sweet potatoes, use jarred baby food.

      I made these for the kids and they ate it no problem. I tried it and could not tell the difference either. I used jarred baby food for the puree - 1/2 the amount in carrots and 1/2 in sweet potatoes. Will definitely be making this again!
