For a fabulous family breakfast, brunch, dessert, or (dare I say it?) snack, you can’t beat this phenomenal French toast. My family and I have been battering up with this baby for years, and it is a huge hit with everyone we serve it to. People even say they prefer this healthier incantation of the classic comfort food to its original counterpart! I’ve received thousands of elated emails and messages on social media about this righteous recipe since I included it in my latest book The Perfect Blend, so I had to share it with you.

So simple, so delicious, so creamy, so crispy you may never blend your batter using dairy milk and eggs again. Yep! This terrific treasure is dairy free, egg free, and also gluten free, and it utilizes whole ingredients.

Now, before you grimace at the thought of using cardboard-like gluten-free sandwich bread (we all know how awful that can be), the brilliant batter in this recipe makes even the worst gluten-free bread full and fluffy! I use whole-grain gluten-free bread, but you could use regular whole-wheat bread as well. Just know that this recipe (ingredient ratios and cook times) has been calibrated for gluten-free bread. So, you may need more coconut oil when frying and will need to adjust the temperature of your stove top as well as the cook time.

But, resist the urge to use less coconut oil than what I’ve prescribed, otherwise, your bread won’t crisp up. I don’t know about you, but I love my French toast crispy on the outside and moist and chewy on the inside.

This French toast is a fun, family-friendly recipe. I make it with my niece and nephew, and they love soaking the bread and preparing their toppings so they can get their serving juuust right. The caramelized bananas I’ve included in this recipe are always a hit, but this fried bread will get cozy with any fruit that takes your fancy. Try serving it with stewed or poached apples, pears, peaches, rhubarb, or some fresh berries.

If you want to make this recipe nut-free, use rice, soy, or hemp milk in the batter, and top it with coconut flakes instead of nuts. Bon appetit!

Blend More Than Smoothies

I use my blender to make all kinds of delicious recipes. I think it’s the greatest culinary tool we’ve been given since fire and spoons! So, I want to encourage you to use your blender beyond smoothies, soups, and cocktails. Your blender can make healthy fast food possible. Blending makes life easier, levels the playing field in the kitchen, and allows anybody to whip up nutrient-dense, tasty foods with limited skills and time.

While my books and website do contain a full repertoire of drinks, smoothies, and soups, you’ll find more than food to sip, glug, or scoop up with a spoon. My recipes are blender centered but by no means blender only. I favor blender-inspired dishes—appetizers, snacks, salads, desserts, and easy main dishes you can attack with your trusty knife and fork.

Giveaway: Blender Worth $630 + Cookbooks

To help get you excited about using your blender more, I’m giving away a KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series blender worth $629.99 and copies of all of my cookbooks! (Enter at the bottom of this post.)

    I would use the blender to make smoothies, my 20 year old Oster blender leaks. I would also use it to make my seasonal batch of roasted tomato basil soup from my garden.

  2. I would use it daily for smoothies and puree veggies like beets and cauliflower and then freeze them in muffin tins and then blend them up again to make pancake mix or breads or soups. I also blend up nuts and seeds and lots of different types of grains. We have lots of health things we are trying to figure out over here from cancer to constipation so we have to keep trying different things. Never even heard of this blender! Sounds incredible.

  3. Melissa Doerksen

    I would love a blender of this calibre to make wonderful and healthy smoothies; however, would be so useful for so many other recipes as well :) Plus, I love healthy cookbooks!

  4. I would love to use the cookbooks to learn more recipes to blend (with a high powered blender!) besides just smoothies.

  5. 4 stars
    I do smoothies every morning. One of these blenders would be awesome! I am also very interested in new ways to use the blender to make more creative meals.

  6. Melissa Doerksen

    I would love a blender of this calibre to make wonderful and healthy smoothies; however believe it would be useful for many other recipes as well :)

  7. I would use the blender for morning smoothies. I have never considered making other recipes like french toast in one and I am excited to try it.

  8. My kids love yogurt smoothies and V8 splash. It would be awesome to get this blender to make a variety of healthy drinks for them. The cookbooks would be an added bonus.

  9. Kate De Carrillo

    I am in need of a new blender and recipe books as well. I really love smoothies as a way for my kids and myself to eat foods we wouldn’t eat otherwise, and I want to start doing more non drink recipes with a blender such as this French toast.

  10. Hello!

    I would most like to use the blender to make the fabulous raw recipes I watch on youtube and/or read about on all the amazing websites out there.

    I have owned lots of “other” blenders in the past and they all, without fail, fail..They get clogged, fall apart, are too difficult to maneuver, etc.

    I am convinced that ease of blender and ease of ingredients will only make my life and diet easier.

    Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing blender and fabulous cookbooks :)


  11. I love making smoothies, but this French toast recipe sounds wonderful. I also use a blender to make the batter for Dutch baby pancake you then cook in the oven. Very yummy.

  12. Love this blog and all the excellent ideas and recipes. I’d love to win the blender and recipe books to try Tess Masters and Lisa’s recipes that work with it.

  13. My son has many food allergies and it takes a lot of time to prepare the foods he can eat. I would loove to use this blender to make coconut milk, nut butters, and of course smoothies! It would make the job so much easier!

  14. This blog has transformed our family in so so many positive ways. I’m open to anything this blog recommends to blend!

  15. I would love to win this blender. My blender broke and I miss my smoothies. It would be nice to have a blender again.

  16. I’d love to win the blender because we don’t have one and I’d like to start making smoothies for breakfast for my girls! And I’d love to win the cookbooks because we are all trying to eat healthier.

  17. I am only a smoothie maker right now and I would love to branch out and make more delicious treats for my family!

      I do not have a good blender and have not used blenders in the past other than for shakes, a few smoothies or very simple things.

      I want to live a healthier life style and I know that what we eat affects so many areas of our health.
      After surviving breast, ovarian and uterine cancer I know that I must eat healthier and exercise. My metabolism is so slow and I want to enjoy the life that I have been blessed with. I very much would like to win this blender and your cookbooks to try more of your healthy recipes and hopefully increase my metabolism. Thank you for this opportunity.

  19. I would love a new blender To make healthier breakfasts for my children! We are definitely in a breakfast rut in our house…..

  20. I’d love a blender that can help me make healthier and more favorable dips from vegetables from my garden.

  21. Thank you for the French toast recipe. I would use the blender to make gluten free and dairy free chocolate zucchini muffins.

  22. I make green smoothies almost every morning in my regular blender and have gotten used to the “chunkiness” but…. my daughter has a lot of food allergies and loves hummus.. I can’t make it smooth enough for her (she gags), so I’d use it for that!!

  23. Zorana M Stricevic Janke

    Smoothies!!! Get those veggies and fruits! And homemade “banilla” ice cream……….. frozen bananas, a little milk and vanilla, yum!

  24. I don’t currently have a blender and it would be nice to try new recipes but It would also be great as I could have my toddler get involved and help me prepare food by throwing it all in the blender and watching amazing food get made.

  25. 5 stars
    This would be so so perfect I just had my Ninja blender die on me. I used it for so much making applesauce, baby food, fruit smoothies. This would be perfect!

  26. I’d love to regularly make this French toast as a comfort meal for my family, using the convenience of the blender!

  27. I would use the blender for the smoothie project – trying a new variety of smoothie every day for myself and my family. Fingers crossed!

  28. Ice cream, smoothies, dips and sauces oh my the possibilities are endless! All with the recipes from the Blender Girls coookbooks.

    With a child with multiple food allergies and a husband with celiac, I am always looking for new recipes to replace foods I grew up with. I’ve only used a blender for drinks and smoothies, so I’m looking forward to finding new receipts to try. So, I suppose I’d like the new cookbooks more then the blender, but I wouldn’t be able to use the recipes without a good blender. Crossing my fingers.

    To make banana protein pancakes, home made fruit popsicles and green breakfast smoothies ( i tell my kids they are “hulk” smoothies :))

    I would most like to use this blender for fruit and veggie smoothies. I am a new empty nester and have not taken care of myself for years. Now I am beginning to feel my age more and worry about my longevity!! I do not eat nearly enough fruit and vegetables and I think smoothies would be a good jump start. I want to improve my health and live to enjoy those well-deserved grandchildren I hope are not too far in the future! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  33. I just broke my old blender and am in desperate need of a new one! This one is amazingly better than my old one and I would love to experiment with more smoothies and soups! Thank you!

  34. I love the idea of banana ice cream using only banana and milk! This blender would be great for that and so much more! Thanks!

    1. My New Roots new cookbook had a great recipe that involved freezing banan slices, letting them defrost 10 minutes, then blending it with a little almond butter, vanilla and salt.
      Soft serve dairy free ice cream! Kids ans adults alike loved it.
