Servings: 1


  • 2 slices whole grain bread or any bread of choice
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons milk (I use oat milk)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of cinnamon optional
  • ½ Tablespoon butter or coconut oil for cooking
  • fresh berries or banana slices and yogurt for serving
  • peanut butter or another nut butter for drizzling


  • Whisk together milk, egg, vanilla, cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
    Eggs whisked in a bowl.
  • Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add butter.
  • One at a time, dip bread and let excess egg mixture dip off.
    Dipping a slice of bread into the whisked egg.
  • Once butter is melted, place bread slices in pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown, but not crisp. Flip bread and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan and repeat the process with the second slice, unless you have enough room to do both at the same time.

  • Let French toast cool and cut into 4 pieces. You can also cut off the crust for smaller babies.
  • Serve with fresh berries, banana slices, a drizzle of nut butter (optional) and yogurt for dipping. If your toddler is old enough and you'd like you can also serve with maple syrup, as a drizzle or for dipping.
