Breakfast Cookie French Toast – Gluten Free



Sometimes we need to show off our quirks. Allow me to welcome the weekend by admitting this: I know Breakfast Cookie French Toast is a little silly. This is one of those funky & delicious things I do often and could not resist sharing with you.

Given the chance I would add an egg to just about everything. From the basic scramble to oatmeal and frittatas, heck even over our salads. This family loves eggs. We love eggs with our eggs…….

Lemon Ricotta and Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies


A lot of you might remember two of my all time favorite Lemon Ricotta Breakfast Cookies and my Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie posts. See those photos above. That’s what they look like before they are dipped in egg…….

As a lot of you know by now Stuffed French Toast is my all time favorite breakfast. I prepare it really healthy & it has me bouncing out of bed every morning at 4am. That and a large pot of strong coffee. The slightly toasted, kinda gooey sweet bread (always Ezekiel) smothered in egg tempts me like nothing else. In this case cookies are a fun twist on the bread.

Do not hesitate to serve with fresh fruit and some cream cheese. Or chocolate sauce.

Now friends, even though this breakfast sounds a bit risqué and ridiculously high calorie it is so not if you use one of my breakfast cookie recipes and stick to appropriate portion sizes. I always add a lot of cinnamon, a dash of salt and a whole lot of stevia drops. Vanilla and English Toffee drops are always my favorite. If honey or maple syrup is your thing than go with that. A little bit of sweet granulated crunch is nice too.

So you can tell how excited I am about everything French Toast…yes? That is why I had such a blast experimenting.




 French Toast two ways with egg


Both of those cookies are super porous so they soak up the egg nicely. They fry up really quick in a pan and serve up even better with your favorite bacon. When in a lighter mood I simply spray a non stick pan with cooking spray. For a bit more sustain & flavor I use some butter or unrefined coconut oil to coat the pan.

By the way I am also known to make Muffin French Toast too. Most recently I fried up my gluten free Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins the same way. Egg battered bliss…..

  1. Too fun to read your post as I’m drinking a cup of coffee and have some sprouted wheat pancakes on the stove as I type. These look like so much fun and something my kids would go crazy for!

  2. Those little breakfast cookie french toasts are beautiful and adorable and I want one!

    I never make french toast or pancakes…like once a year maybe, tops? And you made it every day?! Impressive! I am more of the pot of coffee girl.

    Have a super weekend!

    1. Averie, the pot of coffee is essential. Everything else follow. Bet Skylar would love these 🙂
      Hope you guys have a great weekend too!

  3. Quirky and silly is kinda awesome!

    I used to make breakfast cookies and pop them in the freezer and give them to my kids on those super busy mornings or when they asked for them. I am going to have to check out your recipes.

    Thanks for the link love!

  4. Wow! Apple oatmeal cookie dipped in egg! Delicious. That is my new Sunday morning family breakfast. What a great idea. I will cook up a batch of breakfast cookies and pop them in the freezer. Perfect for busy school mornings. Miss you!

  5. That is such a neat idea! I have never thought to make french toast style cookies- I have however made french toast out of banana bread and pumpkin bread. Ever tried that? It’s decadent and divine!

    1. Nikita, I have tried to “French Toast” virtually everything. Yes, my homemade banana & pumpkin bread has been egg battered and fried up too. I could not agree more, out of this world!!

  6. If this is silly, then count me in! This is such a fun idea, Marla. I don’t know many people that can leap out of bed at 4am. You are a woman with amazing energy reserves.

  7. YOu have no idea how much I needed this… I have been trying to go GF for awhile now… and breakfast is the worst!! I just feel like I cant have any of the foods I REALLY want. Well, this breakfast has EVERYTHING I would want! Thank you!!!

    1. Amanda, I have a lot of great gluten free recipes on my blog. Not to mention most are very low fat and free of refined sugars. I hope you find what you are looking for and have great success with your new meal plan.

  8. What a fun breakfast idea – who wouldn’t want a cookie for breakfast and french toast at that! Great way to use up extra muffins, quick bread and breakfast cookies.

  9. I just ate two hard boiled egg whites and then read this. Had I read this before doing 3 loads of laundry, prepping food for our weeknight meals, and before the waffles and the pancakes for the kids, this would have been our breakfast this fine Sunday a.m. Well, there is always next Sunday! Yummy idea, Marla!

    1. Susan, next time for sure. All you would have needed to do was dip those waffles and pancakes in those egg whites for a super duper, double whammy breakfast!

  10. I think you and I have similar “quirks” and looks like we are both tea drinkers 🙂

    You would probably love all my different breakfast omelettes and lately I am addicted to eating my omelettes with various dipping sauces.

    Right now it’s Taco Omelettes with cucumber avocado dip. SO good…though strange sounding I know.

    I will have to give these breakfast cookies a try!!

    1. Denise I love odd food pairings. Dipping sauces rule! Your omelets sound awesome. Taco omelets with cucumber avocado dip~love that idea! Have you posted it?

  11. do u do the egg soaking right before u serve them or could u do that ahead of time and keep them in the freezer/fridge and just microwave rt before…????????
