Let’s just start with this ~Tutti Fruitti Stuffed French Toast~ was dinner last night.

Life has been busier than ever. I thought back to school was crazy ~ well it seems like the end of school is pretty nuts too! Our days are super busy as we have all kinds of parties & celebrations to wrap up a great year of pre-school and 2nd grade.

When life is busy ~ make stuffed french toast! It is awesome for any time of day and tastes like a great big treat…

My stuffed french toast is free of refined sugars and made with all kinds of great for you ingredients.

We love creamy chèvre or whipped cream cheese in our sammies.

Nothing fancy, but this recipe sure does seem that way!

Be sure to serve your stuffed french toast with warm, homemade fruit sauce and whipped cream. I was kinda in a rush as you can see. I could not wait for these to cool down before I styled them.

The whipped cream is oozing all over the place. It is not billowy. It is drippy. And very tasty.

All you need to do is make your sandwiches, dip them in some egg whites, fry them up in a sizzling hot pan. Voila! You’ve got yourself a tasty meal!

You can make them as sweet as you like. You can mix some stevia drops into the cream cheese. Or you can go ahead and drizzle some honey or maple syrup or fruity jam on top when your french toast is done cooking.

You can also just use your fruity sauce. That might be all you need. You also might just eat it all that sauce with a spoon. *Don’t be afraid to mix your sauces and fruit combos in one sandwich!

Don’t forget that dollop or two of Homemade Whipped Cream…OK?!

    Stuffed French Toast
  • Melt some coconut oil in a frying pan or griddle over medium high heat. Mix your sweetener into the chèvre or cream cheese. Smooth a layer of cheese onto a slice of bread. Add a layer of fruit. Top with another slice of bread. Put egg whites in a shallow bowl and carefully dip both sides of the french toast in this. Place in the frying pan and heat each side until slightly browned and crispy. Flip carefully so you don't lose the filling. Serve with extra berries, fruit, fruit sauce, whipped cream or anything else you can dream up!
  • Homemade Fruit Sauce
  • You will need 2 cups of berries or sliced fruit. Heat the fruit in a saucepan over medium high heat with 2 tablespoons of water until boiling. Cover and reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 6 minutes until fruit has softened. Purée in a blender. Add your favorite natural sweetener to taste. You can thin out your fruit sauce with some water or thicken it with arrowroot.

Ha! If I made french toast for that reason we’d be having it 8 days a week :)

I’ve never tried a stuffed French toast before, and I’d gladly try your version for dinner! I love that it’s not smothered in sugar and bad-for-you ingredients. The light fruit and natural sweetness is very appealing to me!

I’m with you girl, end of school is OUT OF CONTROL. But we will survive.

Loving the glammed-up french toast!


38 Marla June 8, 2012 at 7:14 am

Sommer, I love that you referred to this as “Glammed Up!”

This is so colorful and positive. Like eating a happiness.


48 Marla June 14, 2012 at 5:07 pm

“Like eating happiness?!” I love that!!


49 Heidi @foodiecrush June 15, 2012 at 1:06 pm

I just did a french toast too, but baked. These photos are so gorg lady and I’m with you, summer is way busier than school. But then we’ll be saying the flip flop as soon as school hits!


50 Marla June 15, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Heidi, that is exactly what I will be saying. I really am enjoying the pace of the summer no matter how busy! Beats my over 2 hour commute per day :)


51 gradebmaplesyrup June 24, 2012 at 11:55 pm

This looks incredibly heavenly. I can imagine what it tastes like.


52 siewlingchaw February 1, 2013 at 10:44 pm

hi there for the “Top with additional slice to create sandwich” may i know do we need to layer the 2nd slice of bread with spread like how we did the for the first one ? or just layer the 1st one and top it with a 2nd slice of bread w/o spread ? :)


53 Pauline January 17, 2014 at 10:23 pm

Wow, the colors on the inside are sooo gorgeous and vibrant! Makes me feel like it’s summer already. Also, makes me want to gobble it up, even before getting to the French-toasting part! Whenever anyone hears, “Stuffed french toast,” everyone thinks must be decadent (i.e., unhealthy), but you have certainly proved otherwise. Stuffed french toast can be absolutely healthy but at the same time delectable.

Mmm, I haven’t had sprouted bread in a while. I like that chewy, nutty texture sprouted bread has. Currently baking some oat flax muffins right now, hope they come out well.

I don’t have a favorite French toast recipe yet, but with how awesome yours looks right now, I think I’d have to say yours. I have chevre and blueberries right now, so I could try it this weekend with my fresh baked bread!
