Why You’ll Love These Baked French Toast Cups
These French toast cups are made with wholesome ingredients. They are quick enough to make fresh in the morning, are great for meal prepping, and are perfect to freeze for a quick reheat in the microwave too! You can also add a few of your favorite add-ins like nuts, dried fruit, or yes, chocolate chips to the batter. But don’t let the plain Jane version fool you. They are delicious without any extras!
I was shocked when I decided to look at the food label of my four tops favorite store-bought French toast and realized I needed to get out of my breakfast funk and try making something to appease their little French toast-loving taste buds. That’s the long-winded justification for how I came up with these cute French toast cups.
Yes, there’s still sugar in them. And yes, I’m not eliminating sugar from their diet completely. But I’m definitely more conscious of it now that I NOTICE they’re clamoring for chocolate and candy vs. my cooking. I don’t blame them… but as the saying goes, “Mom knows best.” Can I get a round of applause, please?!
