Are you ready to make this easy gluten free breakfast recipe?
Place the Franz Gluten Free Blueberry bread on a cutting board and cut it into cubes.
Add the cubed bread to a bowl and add optional blueberries.
Add the wet ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to blend.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes and mix well. Allow sitting for 5 minutes so the bread cubes absorb all of the liquid.
Place the bread cube mixture into a greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes until done. Serve hot with maple syrup.
This gluten free muffin recipe is perfect just the way it is, however, there are additional flavors you can add in to make it even better. Here are some ideas:
- Drizzle the french toast muffins with maple syrup, blueberry syrup, or even strawberry syrup for extra sweetness.
- Sprinkle a little bit of powdered sugar on top right before serving.
- For special occasions, dab on some whipped cream and fresh blueberries. So delicious!
These muffins are also delicious and use up those ripe bananas in this Easy Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffins recipe.
Are these muffins dairy-free?
Yes, these muffins are dairy-free!! I know how difficult it can be cooking if there are allergies or food aversions in the home. These gluten free muffins are just as amazing without dairy as they are with!
Are these muffins nut-free?
I created this recipe to be nut-free but feel free to add pecans, walnuts, or any other type of nut to add more protein!
Can I make them ahead of time?
Yes, absolutely! These gluten free french toast muffins are excellent when you make them ahead of time. Store them in the freezer and just grab one when you want it. You can defrost it on the counter, in the fridge or toss it in the microwave for a few seconds. This is a great meal prep idea for an easy and quick breakfast.
I often will make several batches and flash freeze them. In case you don’t know how to flash freeze something, all you need to do is place the gluten free muffins on a baking sheet. Place the entire baking pan in the freezer for 2 hours or so. The muffins should be fairly hard and frozen. Then just take the muffins and place them in an airtight container or freezer bag for storage.
Can I turn this into a casserole?
Yes, you sure can! This recipe is seriously so versatile because you can do so much with it. You can easily transform it into a casserole instead of making muffins with it. Or you can bake it in muffin tins. It’s completely up to you and your preferences.
Oh my goodness these were SO good and easy to make! My kiddos started school and these are the nice quick grab and go breakfasts for them and their friends before I take them to school! I’ve made them with a bunch of different breads, fruits, non dairy milks and they always come out delicious. Thank you for such a great idea😁"Darcie, Pinterest user
