The bags of "ends" are beginning to pile up in my freezer again, so this time I am going to make French toast muffins for a quick and easy breakfast. These delicious gluten free muffins are great on their own, but even better when you drizzle maple syrup over them while they are warm.
What to do with the ends?
My kids may not eat ends and crusts, but they love this easy gluten free French toast recipe. It is quick and easy to make handheld gluten free muffins. If you don't want to make muffins, this recipe also makes gluten free French toast casserole.
This is better to feed a crowd for breakfast. You will also feel better because this recipe is really nutritious. This French toast is baked instead of pan-frying it.
You can make this overnight French toast casserole the night before to save time. Even better, if you make a double batch, you can freeze them. Just thaw them out when you are ready.
For easier freezable gluten free muffins these Gluten Free Blackberry Almond Flour Muffins.
- Gluten free bread
- Coconut milk
The first step is to gather your gluten free bread. If it is frozen, let it thaw a little so it is easier to chop up.
Chopping gluten free ends were a little rough. I freeze the ends until I have enough to make something with them. I had a full big bag of ends and they were frozen solid.
I wanted breakfast to be ready for when the kids woke up so I chopped them all while they were frozen :-(.
By the time I sawed through the ends, they were mostly thawed out. This makes it easier for the egg and coconut milk mixture to absorb into the bread. The longer the liquid absorbs, the softer these muffins will be on the inside.
Add the batter to a muffin tin and bake. Baked French toast is so good hot out of the oven! Muffin tins are great for all sorts of things. You can even make Egg Muffins in them!
Can you use a different pan?
If you don't have a muffin tin, or if you prefer to make this more like a casserole, feel free to use a 9x13 baking pan. French toast casserole is nice because you can slice it up easily!
Now all you need is some real maple syrup to top it off :-). You can also top these gluten free French toast muffins with a fruit sauce, jam, whipped cream, or even drizzle some honey on top!
