Pumpkin Whole Wheat French Toast
Whip up a bit of fall into your french toast batter and enjoy some extra nutrition at the same time with this recipe. A family favorite in our house!
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ cup pureed pumpkin (canned or fresh)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp real vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
  • 8 bread slices (stale is fine)
  • Serving suggestion: butter and real maple syrup
  1. Preheat a large pan or griddle over medium low heat.
  2. Whisk egg, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a shallow dish.
  3. Grease the pan (I prefer organic butter or coconut oil). When a few water drips sizzle in the pan, it is hot enough to begin.
  4. Dip bread slices one at a time in the batter, turning them over to get them completely soaked. Give them a minute to really soak in the goodness!
  5. Cook the battered bread slices for about 2 minutes on each side. The french toast is done when both sides are golden brown and there is no more visible raw egg.
  6. Serve with butter and real maple syrup.

  1. it must have been meant to be this morning. Couldn’t sleep in… had exactly 1/2 cup pumpkin puree in my fridge, so I got up and made the family hot breakfast 🙂 it was yummy – thanks!

    Have you made these in advance and then frozen them for a future quick breakfast? I’m thinking of making a big batch and freezing them so I can pull some out and pop them in the toaster to rewarm them.

      Yep, sure have and it’s worked fine. To defrost and warm, I usually nuke them a little (about 20 seconds) and then toast them. You can also store in the fridge for several days and warm in the toaster. Great idea to make a big batch!

  6. This is such a great recipe and my picky 3-year-old loves it! Do you mind if I share it on my mom blog at learningthemomlife.com?

      We’d be honored if you shared a link to our recipe and an image from this post on your blog, Samantha. But we do kindly ask that you don’t copy and paste the entire post/recipe to your site, as that will ding both of us on Google searches. Thank you and so glad your little one enjoys it!
