Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free: Butternut Squash French Toast

Butternut Squash French Toast DF GF

Sunday’s always seem like a special breakfast kind of day, so I made some delectable butternut squash french toast.

You can make this french toast dairy-free or you can make it gluten-free too, it all depends on the bread you use. I know I am always raving about Dave’s Killer Bread, but recently I bought a Trader Joe’s brand bread that was good and hearty, it was Organic Sprouted Wheat Oat Bran- that was a mouthful- that would be great for making this dairy-free french toast. I actually used a gluten-free bread this morning, Franz Gluten-Free 7 Grain, and it worked really well.


Dairy-Free/ Gluten-Free Butternut Squash French Toast

Serving Size: 4 pieces

2 eggs

1/3 cup dairy-free milk

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup pureed butternut squash

4 slices of bread (DF and/or GF)

Topping Ideas:

Dairy-Free butter

Nut butter

Seed butter

Maple syrup

Mashed or whole fruit topping

Mix all of the ingredients together. Heat a skillet to medium and grease it with oil or a dairy-free butter. Dip your bread in the egg mixture until its good and coated and add it to the skillet. When the french toast is done, add whatever toppings you wish and enjoy!

I didn’t have a chance to snap a picture of my toddler’s plate, but I topped his french toast with some nut butter and cut it into bite size pieces and added some sliced pear on the side. As a side note, I personally don’t add syrup to my toddlers food because the extra sugar seems unnecessary, and he is perfectly happy with out it!

Happy Cooking πŸ™‚
