One of my favorite breakfast items growing up was French toast. Huge fan, right here. However, after my decision to start eating healthier, I stopped having it completely. I didn’t realize then that eating healthy does not mean you have to give up the things you love. I mean, if a gluten-free diet such as Paleo has found a way to make bread, anything is possible. So I am happy to share this recipe for Paleo French toast with you, a spin on a childhood favorite of mine. Granted, it’s not something I eat regularly, but it makes a perfect treat on occasion.

How to Make Paleo French Toast- with blueberry syrup.

I had some fresh blueberries around and decided to incorporate them into the French toast by making blueberry syrup. It’s quite simple, really. All you have to do is add blueberries and a bit of maple syrup together in a small pan on the stove. Bring to a simmer and then turn down to low. The syrup will slowly turn a beautiful deep purple. Serve over the French toast for a delicious accompaniment.

I believe French toast might be one of the easiest breakfast foods to prepare. You simply dip bread in an egg and milk mixture (with whatever added flavors you like) and then cook it. It’s ready in about 5 minutes. And then you get to cover it in syrup and fruit. A delicious and simple indulgence.

Ask a Question 

    • You’re recipes are just wonderful. Would love to make the french toast. Would you be able to tell me which bread yo used, Thanks!!

    • PaleoGrubs has actually posted a recipe for some delicious sandwich bread that would work great for this recipe!

  1. Do I use coconut milk or almond milk? The recipe has almond milk listed in the ingredients and coconut milk mentioned in the directions. I assume I can use either, but I certainly don’t want to assume. Thanks!

  2. Hi, of course I agree with everyone else in saying that looks in sounds delicious. I also would like the recipe to your Paleo bread. My daughter isn’t yet to fond of the lifestyle change (yet) so this would be a nice addition to breakfast. She is 15 and we are originally from New Orleans so you can imagine the changes we are making. I on the other hand am extremely excited to live a healthy and happy life. She will be when she realize the health benefits.

  3. Hi! This looks so yummy!! Can’t wait to try it.
    It would be helpful if you could fix the recipe (on the milks), include your bread link and include the instructions for the syrup. 🙂 I always print this out as .pdf’s and I can’t make any manual changes to the recipes. So it would be nice if it could print out perfectly. I don’t actually print these in paper form, so I can’t write any comments on them. Thanks!!!

  4. Hi, I didn’t see the recipe for the paleo bread…I’ve made french toast using the 1 minute flaxseed muffin instead. I make the muffin in a coffee mug in the microwave. Pop it out and then slice it thinly..then dip each slice in beaten eggs and milk with a sprinkle of cinnamon..then fry each in coconut oil or butter..then top it with sugar free syrup. Very yummy!!

  5. I have numerous food allergies but I still really want to do this diet. I am allergic to fish, apples, bananas, pineapples, cashews, walnuts, soy and almonds(all tree nuts). I usually use coconut or rice milk. Can you help??
