Clean Eating French Toast {A 15 Minute Recipe!} (1)

Looking for a clean eating french toast recipe that delivers great taste? Keep reading! New to Clean Eating? I have a guide that can teach youwhat clean eating means!

When I first started eating clean, I was unsure if I would still be able to enjoy my favorite comfort foods, like lasagna, pizza, and french toast. I wanted to eat only real foods, but I also didn’t want to feel like I was sacrificing my favorite foods.

I have learned that yes, it is possible. As long as you’re willing to cook at home, and make a few substitutes, you can enjoyalmost any food on a clean eating diet.

I have two young kids at home who love all things sweet, so I frequently make french toast for them. Every week I try to prepare as many “clean eating” meals for them as possible. I know what they grow up eating is what they’ll likely find comforting as adults, and I want to establish healthy eating habits for them.

So I learned how to modify my go-to recipe to make clean eating french toast. This recipe uses:

  • Whole wheat or whole grain bread (no sugar added)
  • Farm fresh or store-bought organic eggs
  • Organic whole milk
  • Real maple syrup
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Real butter

If you or your family is used to having white bread products, it may take a little time to get used to whole wheat. But if you stop buying white bread products and stick with whole wheat, it won’t take long until you actually prefer the taste of whole wheat. It’s really worth it!

Now let’s get to there recipe!

    Hi! I’m kind of new to this cooking thing, and was wanting to know if I can replace whole milk with any non-dairy milk? Also the butter with vegan butter. These look amazing but I’m dairy free!

      Hi Mary,

      Yes, you should be able to substitute the whole milk for a non-dairy milk, like almond milk. I believe almond milk is a 1 for 1 substitute for milk, but if you’re using something else, just look up the substation ratio. I have never used vegan butter, so I can’t say positively, but it seems like the substitution should work.
