Organic French Toast


Total Time: 20 minutes Yields: Serves 4

Tastes just like the ones Grandma used to make but with a healthier debut.

View Ingredients

For the French Toast:

  • 1 cup whole milk (or coconut milk for dairy-free/Paleo)
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ghee, leaf lard, duck fat, etc. (any heat that can be used at a high heat) 
  • 8 thick slices dense of stale bread (I used my grain-free banana bread)*


For the Topping:

  •  1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Fresh Berries
  • 1 cup whipped cream (optional)
Read Directions

1. Whisk together the milk, egg yolks, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and vanilla extract in an 8×8″ baking dish. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat for 2 minutes.
2. Place each piece of bread into the milk mixture. Let the each side of the bread sit for 20 seconds. Using a pair of tongs, transfer the soaked bread over to the hot pan. Let the bread cook for 1-2 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown. Using a spatula, flip the bread and continue cooking an additional 1-2 minutes until the second side is golden brown.
3. Serve immediately with maple syrup, berries and whipped cream (if using).


Recipe Notes

  • I like to place the bread on a cooling rack that has been set over a baking sheet and leave it out overnight so the bread gets stale. If you forgot to do this step, you can put the bread in a 300 degree F oven for about 10 minutes, until stale.
