Healthy French Toast

Healthy French Toast is so simple to make with just a few ingredients! We’re making healthier ingredient swaps for this indulgent breakfast!

Prep: 30 minCook: 10 minTotal: 40 min
Servings: serves 6


  • 68 slices of your favorite bread (sourdough, challah, whole grain, gluten free, etc.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oat milk (or almond milk, whole milk, coconut milk, etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil, for frying (butter or ghee works too)
  • toppings: butter, syrup, yogurt, fresh berries, nut butter, etc.


  1. In a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

  2. Place the slices of bread into the dish and let sit for about 5 – 10 minutes. You may need to work in batches.

  3. Warm a skillet over medium heat and melt the refined coconut oil.

  4. Place the soaked bread into the skillet and cook for about two minutes, then flip. You want there to be a golden brown and crisp edge to your french toast.

  5. Cook another 2 minutes and transfer to your plate.

  6. Top with whatever you want! I used a pad of butter, syrup, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, and fresh berries.
