Remember french toast sticks as a little kid? I loved the Kellogg’s Eggo French Toast sticks because they were so easy to pop in the toaster then dip them in an unforgivable amount of maple syrup. Honestly, I am now afraid to actually look at the ingredients…I think it is safe to safe that it has over 20 ingredients and these, the homemade ones; have just gluten free bread cut into sticks mixed with a wet batter of eggs, almond milk & cinnamon. That is it!
To add in protein, healthy fats, and cut back on the sugar; I used RX Bars Maple Almond Butter, instead of maple syrup or butter on top. Their new maple almond butter packet has 9 grams of protein, 4 grams of sugars (from dates!) and tastes like fall in a package! It is really smooth and truthfully tastes just like maple syrup! I love almond butter because it is rich in slow-to-digest nutrients that keep your blood sugar levels stable and make you feel fuller longer and gives you a boost of energy! Their almond butter is smooth, easy to spread, contains egg whites for added protein, healthy fats (from the nuts), dates for fiber and natural sweetness, and still tastes delicious.
These french toast sticks came out
crispy on the edges
tender in the middle
has hints of cinnamon & maple
are fun to make and simple!
I kept the egg wash batter simple (almond milk, egg, cinnamon) but you can also add in a scoop of your favorite protein, sea salt, vanilla extract, or really anything else! You can also sub almond milk for your favorite nut milk or coconut milk. Once you cut the bread into slices, dip them in the batter, all you have to do is cook them in a cast iron pan on each side for a few minutes in coconut oil! This makes a really fun breakfast for little kids, a healthy brunch option, or a quick breakfast before work!
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time 8 or less minutes
Total time: less than 15 or so minutes.
2 slices of bread (I used a sprouted gluten free option)
1/2 cup almond milk
few dashes of cinnamon
1 RX Maple Almond Butter Packet
optional: cacao nibs, coconut flakes, hemp seeds, bee pollen.
In a non stick pan or cast iron, add in 2 tbsp. of coconut oil on medium high heat.
While the coconut oil is melting, in a small bowl whisk together the almond milk, cinnamon, 1 egg.
Slice your bread into sticks; you will get 6 slices.
Dip the bread sticks into the egg batter; make sure it is coated on both sides.
Carefully place the bread sticks into the cast iron pan on medium heat. Allow to cook roughly 3-4 minutes on EACH side.
Serve warm with your favorite toppings!
