Paleo French Toast
Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, Minimal Ingredients, Easy
Switch up your breakfast routine with a plate of these delicious gluten-free and refined sugar-free Paleo French toast slices.
If I had it my way, I’d make eggs for breakfast every morning, but having two boys, they tend to get bored with the ‘same old same old‘ breakfast routine. So once a week, I will make a special breakfast, usually homemade pancakes, waffles, or now their favorite; French toast.
My youngest had a breakdown the other morning screaming “NOT EGGS AGAIN, MOM,” so being the sucker that I am, I made a batch of homemade bread that night, and the next morning surprised them with a plate full of French toast.
For this recipe, I use our homemade Paleo bread. I highly suggest making a loaf and using it for this recipe as well. I can’t speak for other homemade (or store-bought) loaves of bread and how they will hold up or taste when making this recipe! But feel free to experiment!
You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety for more helpful tips and tricks you’d typically by-pass. Or, if you are feeling lucky, jump to the recipe below and get started!
Either way, I’d love to hear how your french turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.
How to Make Paleo French Toast
1. Lightly spray the griddle (or skillet) with avocado oil and heat to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium-sized dish (large enough to fit a slice of bread), whisk eggs, coconut sugar, and cinnamon.
3. One by one dip each side of the bread into the egg wash (do not completely submerge) and place onto the preheated skillet.
4. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown and then flip for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Tip: Remove the French toast from the griddle and serve with a side of pure maple syrup or fruit.
How to Store Paleo French Toast
French toast can be store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days for optimal freshness. Make double or triple the batch and save in the freezer, individually divided between parchment paper and store in an airtight freeze-safe container for up to 1 to 3 months.
When ready to eat, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place frozen French toast pieces onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until warm to touch and no longer frozen.
Essential Equipment for Making Paleo French Toast
Griddle – I love using our griddle for this recipe. It has a preheat setting that alerts me when it’s ready to use, and I never have to worry about an uneven bake. I get the same results every time! If you do not have a griddle, you can use a skillet over the stovetop.

Basic Staples For Making Paleo French Toast
Paleo Bread – We use our homemade bread recipe for our French toast. It makes the best French toast every time! While there are a few Paleo loaves of bread on the supermarket shelves, they tend to be denser and aren’t ideal for this recipe.
Eggs – Local and pasture-raised eggs are best.
Coconut Sugar – The coconut sugar adds a little sweetness much like the traditional recipe.
