5 from 1 reviews

These Blueberry French Toast Muffins are quick, healthy and kid-friendly. Make a batch over the weekend and serve them for breakfast or pack them for lunch! They can easily be customized with different mix-ins.?

Scale

Ingredients

5 cups whole wheat sandwich bread, cubed (I use 6 slices of Dave’s Killer Bread)
9 eggs
1/2 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp ground flax
2 Tbsp hemp seeds (or chia seeds)
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
(I make mine without sweetener and top with maple syrup but you could also mix 1/4 cup of maple syrup in before baking if you want.)

Instructions

  1. Put cubed bread in a large bowl.
  2. Mix eggs and milk in a smaller bowl until combined.
  3. Add eggs to bread and mix well.
  4. Stir in cinnamon, vanilla, flax, hemp and pepitas.
  5. Add blueberries and stir gently, then spoon into well greased muffin tins (I use silicone muffin tins that i don’t have to grease)
  6. Bake at 375 F for 20-25 min. Tops should be lightly brown and firm. Middles should be slightly squishy but not loose and jiggly.

Notes

If your bread slices are smaller, you may need more than six slices. I just cut them up and loosely fill a 1 cup measuring cup to measure. It doesn’t need to be tightly packed. If you use too much bread the muffins will be too hard.

These are not traditional muffins and not meant to be sweet. They are more like actual french toast in muffin form. You can top with syrup for sweetness or mix maple syrup in before baking

I have a mix of hemp, ground flax and chia seeds and I just use 3-4 Tbsp of that

You could sub slivered almonds or chopped nuts for the pepitas if you want
