Baked Apple French Toast

Breakfast, brunch or dessert, this dish has it all! It is packed with fibre, healthy fats and protein. It will no doubt please everyone!
Apr 5, 2022 | Joy McCarthy

I am a brunch lover which you probably already knew from the number of recipes in my cookbooks and here on the blog. The first thing you eat truly sets the stage for the day so why not make it something that is nourishing to the core and absolutely delicious. You can and should have both!

Ingredients for baked apple french toast

Meet your new favourite recipe: Baked Apple French Toast. This recipe is everything you wish it could be! It has a spongy eggy texture on the bottom just like French Toast and a crunchy top. Combined with a natural sweetness from the apples and raisins it's a perfect match of textures and flavours. You're in charge of whether you make it sweeter by adding maple syrup before you serve it.


It's a healthy French Toast!

French toast is all about the bread though right?! The bread I’m using to make this delicious and nourishing breakfast or dessert is Stonemill’s Sourdough Multigrain Rye which is naturally fermented bread!

Stonemill Bakehouse Bread

It’s an amazing choice for this recipe because…

  • There is NOTHING artificial in the bread, no preservatives, no flavours or colouring
  • It is traditionally prepared and naturally fermented which allows the flavour to develop over time creating flavourful and wholesome bread
  • It is a great source of iron and fibre
  • No GMOs, no added dairy or soy


This unique take on traditional French toast is perfect for breakfasts and brunches or desserts! Simply add all the ingredients to a baking dish and pop it in the oven for a no-fuss, delicious recipe that will knock everyone’s socks off!

I highly encourage you to take the extra step and make the Coconut Whipped Cream because it adds a creamy texture and healthy fats.
