Time Saving Baked French Toast Sticks with Pear Spears

By Macki West |

Back to school is upon us and so is figuring out a healthy start to our kid’s day without waking up at 5am to slave over breakfast. I like to use the old let the oven do the work for me trick. This recipe is not your run of the mill French toast, I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve that makes this crunchy and able to stand up to kids hands and still give you that moist center. It’s a perfect breakfast to have as a family or take on the go for those rushed mornings. Get my tricks after the jump…

The first step towards making healthy French toast is to use good for you bread.  My family prefers Milton’s Original Plus and I’ve found it all over – Trader Joe’s, Costco, even Smart & Final. We love it for it’s slightly sweet flavor, yummy seeds on top and soft center, I love it because it doesn’t contain anything like hydrogenated oil or high fructose corn syrup. Here’s the rest of the recipe:

Baked French Toast Sticks Recipe

6 pieces healthy multi-grain bread cut into sticks

3 eggs

¾ cup milk

¼ cup whole wheat flour

½ teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

pinch of salt

3 pears sliced into spears

Combine all of the ingredients except the bread and use an emersion/stick blender for 10-20 seconds to properly mix the ingredients (the secret to perfectly mixed eggs). What’s great is that you can make combine these ingredients the night before without the bread and give it a quick mix in the morning. The bread can be cut and stored in an airtight container too. It’s not a good idea to soak the bread overnight because it will turn into mush, not sticks. In the morning preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and place the sticks of bread into the egg mixture, gently toss to coat. Spray a 9×13 baking pan and place the sticks in one layer, not overlapping. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, just enough time to get the kids dressed. Remove from the oven and use a thin spatula to release the sticks from the pan. On the outside they will look like toast and be easy to grab and go, but on the inside it’s soft and delicious and addicting. Serve in a cup with pear spears.  No need for dipping into syrup, this recipe is tasty enough!  Serves 4.
