Finally! A Successful Whole Wheat French Toast

14 November 2011

I've been working for several weeks to eliminate cereal from our breakfast routine. I have tried and had success with many different options for breakfast.  I have tried several different french toast recipes. However, due to the fact that I was making major changes in order to up the fiber and protein, while also decreasing the sugar, none of these was very successful- until Now!!

Mini French Toast Muffins

4 eggs
1 cup milk
5 T pure maple syrup
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
pinch of salt
4 cups whole wheat bread (I used Fiber One Honey Whole Wheat)

  • Whisk eggs and then mix in milk, pure maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Cut bread into small cubes (with or without crust)
  • Coat mini muffin cups with non-stick spray or butter.
  • Fill cups with bread cubes.
  • Pour egg mixture over the bread and allow it to be somewhat absorbed (you will still see liquid)
  • Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.
  • Remove from tins and drizzle with more syrup, if desired.
*Can be made in full size muffin tins. Do not fill to the top with bread. Bake for about 18 minutes.
*Add 1/3 cup pumpkin puree and replace cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice for a "Pumpkin French Toast."
*Replace maple syrup with 1 mashed banana and a handful of raisins for a lower "sugar" version.

  1. This looks like a great alternative to the real deal! Glad I found your site - getting kids to eat healthy is tough! Your newest GFC groupie!

  2. Thanks Carrie and Amanda! This is the first adapted french toast I've made that doesn't "taste healthy!!" My husband even said I should make it for the next family get together. I really would recommend using the Fiber One Honey Whole Wheat bread... it's not as grainy as some other breads I've tried. Enjoy!!

  3. This looks really good! I love that it is healthy!

  4. These look great! Thanks for visiting my blog and sharing your tip about melted butter snicker doodles. I'll have to give that a try some time!

  5. We are trying these. Wonderful recipe!

    1. I hope you enjoy it! I kept trying different recipes but when I tried to make them healthier they definitely tasted "healthy." I was pretty happy when these turned out!
