Healthy French Toast Recipes

Hi everyone,

Besides firstly thinking ‘YUM!’ when it comes to French toast, most people would probably also associate the dish as being high in sugar, refined carbohydrates, calories, or simply just lacking nutritional value altogether.

It is for this reason that I have sourced seven recipes to prove these assumptions are not always correct!

We absolutely can enjoy this scrumptious meal while still being confident that we are looking after our health…I’m all about getting the best of both worlds!

French toast is a great meal for breakfast, brunch or, let’s be honest, any time of day. Some of these seven recipes cover several different dietary requirements, including egg-free, paleo, vegan, low fat and/or low sugar.

So here are the top 7 healthy French toast recipes which I bet will change your life!
