No Toast French Toast Recipe

I have to give my husband credit for this one.  One of our favorite Paleo breakfast recipe's is Robb Wolf's Peach & Pecan Scramble (found in 'The Paleo Solution' by Robb Wolf - full recipe can be found here).  A couple months ago, peaches were no where to be found in Houston since they weren't in season yet.  We often substituted using apples or pears, which is still just as delicious.  However, one day we were out of apples and pears so my husband decided to make this without fruit.  He took it a step further and made it into an omelet, versus being scrambled, and topped it with agave nectar.  The end product tasted exactly like French toast - no kidding!  

Don't believe us?  Try it for yourself - I dare you not to like it!

This recipe serves 1 - adjust quantities according to how many people you wish to serve.
1. In a small bowl, crack two eggs and scramble them with a fork, mixing the yolks and the whites.
2. To the eggs, add approx. 2 TB no sugar added apple sauce, chopped pecans to taste and cinnamon to taste (maybe 1/2 tsp?)
3. Add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (Optional)
4.  Mix all ingredients well.
5. Heat olive oil in frying pan (the amount of oil depends on whether you cook with a teflon coated pan or a stainless steel - we use a bit more oil because our pans have no teflon coating). 
6. Once the oil is heated, add egg mixture and cook it like a flat omelet, flipping once to cook both sides.
7. When the egg mixture is cooked through, place omelet on plate drizzle agave nectar over top.
