5 Ingredient Paleo French Toast | Reclaiming Yesterday

Weekday breakfasts should be:

1) filled with healthy things to power you through your to-do list.

2) so tasty, they cancel out any craziness the day might throw at you. 

Bonus points if a weekday breakfast is also ridiculously easy. Like say for instance, this Paleo French Toast.😋

Weekdays are hard! Give yourself something to look forward to each morning. With a *minimal* amount of planning you can make yourself a super quick breakfast without sacrificing in the health OR flavor departments.

A couple of things that make weekday breakfasts on those rushed mornings easier:

The incredible, edible egg – Eggs are your best friend when you’re trying to give up processed food breakfast habits (but are still tight on time.) My advice- get the best eggs you can comfortably afford, they’re so worth it. Local, pasture raised eggs are ideal, but for convenience sake we buy organic eggs from Costco a lot. 

Prep, even if it’s just a little bit – You don’t have to go all meal plan crazy on this. Trust me, I’m not super organized when it comes to meal planning. But I do prepare a couple of things at the beginning of the week to have on hand. I’ll usually roast a spaghetti squash or two, boil a dozen eggs, cook a pot of quinoa… you get the idea. Don’t take it too seriously! Just fit whatever you can into your busy Sunday. It will make your life so much easier (and healthier) during the week.

SO, for this Ridiculously Easy Paleo French Toast, you just need to have thought ahead a littttle bit and roasted a spaghetti squash. (Pssss- you can also steam spaghetti squash in the microwave or cook it in the crock pot!)

Then a quick chop—because we’re not going for the “noodle” effect here. (side note, spaghetti squash is one of my favorite pasta replacements, in which case the “noodle” effect is very much appreciated.)

Then it’s just a crack of an egg, a spoonful of nut butter, a dash of salt and cinnamon, and a quick whisk with a highly sophisticated kitchen tool: the fork. 

What you’ve got is a batter that’s ready to pour into a hot, buttered skillet. It’s perfectly fine if your french toast sort of turns out circular and pancake like. BUT if you want to go that extra mile and nail the french toast aesthetic, use your spatula to nudge your batter into a square-ish sort of design.

This little healthy-eating life hack works because the spaghetti squash has a mild flavor that can go either sweet or savory. Together with the egg and nut butter it creates that moist, slightly spongey consistency that real french toast has.

The outside? It gets browned and buttery in a very french toasty way.

And a drizzle of real maple syrup (please don’t make me sad and cover your Paleo French Toast with Log Cabin) seals the deal and will take you right on down Memory Lane. To childhood Saturday mornings. In your jammies. With a hot plate of french toast that your mom just made for you.

  1. Hey Allyson, love this recipe! I made banana egg pancakes last weekend and my bf was hugely surprised at how yummy, easy, and similar to pancakes they were. I love french toast so this recipe sounds awesome! Your healthy eating and delicious recipes are so inspiring.

    • Hey Katelyn! I love those easy pancakes too!! I was obsessed with French toast as a kid, so I really wanted to recreate a healthy version that was also simple. Thanks for the comment, it made my morning! ❤

  2. This recipe was delightful! It made six pieces, and the texture and look were incredibly similar! And the “bread” actually tasted like bread.

    My older son didn’t like the taste of the inside, and while I thought it tasted fine, as someone who doesn’t really eat syrup I wondered how to make the French toast more inherently flavorful. Maybe a half a banana or something?

    Also, do you think using a Vitamix to mix the batter would ruin the texture?


    • So glad you liked them! I think adding 1/2 a banana is a good idea – you could also add some vanilla or maple extract! I’ve never made this in the blender but I don’t see why not… Sometimes blending eggs will affect texture but it’s worth a try!
