Oatmeal French Toast for breakfast is one of the most raved about recipes we serve our guests! It is usually prepared when we have a guest with a special diet but everyone else also enjoys it. It is gluten free as there is no flour. Also it is low in sugar and by using coconut milk it is dairy free. Coconut oil can be used for cooking in place of the butter. And for vegans you can use the flaxseed eggs in place of regular eggs.
Serving size for Oatmeal French Toast
I made this recipe for 2 guests. Instead of using a square pan I used a loaf pan – 8 ½ X 4 ½ X 2 ½. When ready to cook I cut the oatmeal into 4 ths and served each guest 2 pieces accompanied by the peach and blueberry compote. When the plates came back to the kitchen, there was not a crumb left! By that I would say that this recipe served 2. But this was a couple going bike riding for the day so they stocked up on energy! Therefore, I would say that this recipe serves 2-4, depending on your families or guests appetites.

¼ tsp. Salt

Morning of service:
2 eggs (for vegan use 2 flaxseed eggs)

½ tsp. Cinnamon
Few scrapes of nutmeg

- Dip oatmeal squares into the custard mixture for 30 – 40 seconds on each side.
- Heat a non stick skillet to medium and add 1 T. butter or coconut oil.
- Place oatmeal squares into hot butter or oil and cook until golden brown about 3 minutes per side. (Let them get good and crispy golden brown on each side).

- Place in oven for 10 – 15 minutes
- Arrange on plates and serve with fruit compote. Peaches and blueberries in honey work great! Serve with honey, Agave, or maple syrup.
