Healthier make-ahead frozen French toast sticks


A healthier version of a family favorite breakfast


  • 10 slices whole grain bread
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)


  • In a large, shallow bowl, mix your eggs, milk, and cinnamon and vanilla, if using.  Preheat your griddle or pan over medium heat.  If you aren’t using non-stick, coat with oil or butter.
  • Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture and turn to coat.  Cook in the hot pan until golden brown to your liking, about 2-4 minutes per side.  Allow the slices to cool, and then cut each slice into 4 sticks.  You can cut multiple pieces at once.
  • Can be stored in the freezer in a glass container or a Zip-lock freezer bag for 1-2 months.
