I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving comfort food lately. And French toast makes the perfect healthy breakfast that is easy to prepare! How to make French toast? Let me walk you through the tools and ingredients you’ll need.

Tools Needed to Make French Toast
Really all the cooking tools you need to make French toast are a good skillet, either cast iron (my favorite) or ceramic, a spatula, whisk and a bowl. Of course you’ll also need some measuring cups and measuring spoons.
What about the Ingredients?
I look at food as health insurance. So I don’t mind sometimes spending a little more to get organic ingredients. If cost is an issue, consider buying in bulk or from discount websites online. I regularly use Amazon, Vitacost and Thrive Market. Especially now, with coronavirus going on, this is an easy way to get healthy ingredients shipped right to your door!
Ok, here’s the run down of what is in this French toast:

The bread: It all starts with some good bread. I mean really good bread. We’re talking about thick slices of hearty sourdough bread. That is really the best choice in my opinion, but if you’re gluten free you can also use a gluten free variety. Just make sure it’s sturdy enough to be able to dip in the batter and not fall apart!

Milk: I used almond milk in this recipe but you can substitute other milk of your choice. Just don’t use anything too thin like rice milk for best results.

Eggs: For many years I didn’t use eggs in my recipes, but lately I’ve enjoyed adding them back in. I do recommend only using the best quality available, from pasture-raised chickens.

Frying oil: Be sure to use a healthy oil that can withstand higher temperatures you need for frying. I like to use either avocado oil or coconut oil for this.

Flavor additions: The vanilla and cinnamon add just the right touch of sweetness and spice. Feel free to add more than I call for, and you can also use pumpkin pie spice for fun, especially if making this in the fall.

Salt: Just a touch of natural sea salt balances the flavor of this recipe. It also adds beneficial minerals to the recipe.

Toppings: Choose pure maple syrup for a nice touch on the finished toast, along with some powdered sugar for a pretty touch. Feel free to also top it off with berries for color.

I hope you find it as fun and cozy as I do making French toast. It’s an easy, kid-friendly recipe that I think you will love making too!
