French Toast Sticks

French Toast Sticks from Weelicious



Last week I made French toast, served it to the kids alongside little dishes for dipping -- maple syrup for Kenya, honey for Chloe -- and before I could turn to cut up some fruit, Chloe said, “I wish these were French Toast Sticks”. I get it. There's something a bit more fun about these little sticks. Aside from being cute, they're easy for kids to hold and dip. Since the day I first made this recipe it’s been a regular request from both of my kids before bedtime for me to make the next morning.

I'm truly grateful when my kids remind me of their favorites, like these, which are a delicious choice to re-share with you on Rewind Wednesday if I do say so myself!

French Toast Sticks from Weelicious

One of our missions at weelicious is to offer recipes the entire family can enjoy together. A few simple alterations to most any dish suited for mommy and daddy, can make it totally attractive to kids. Take these French Toast Sticks, for example. It's not that I couldn't just hand Chloe, my 15 month old, an entire piece of french toast and have her eat it -- she's actually such an adventurous eater right now, she'll hoover just about anything -- but tailoring a breakfast food my husband and I normally eat with a knife and fork so it's in a fun and appealing kid friendly shape, allows everyone in our family to enjoy the same meal in our own way.

These little french toast "fingers" are not only delicious, they're also the perfect size for little hands to hold. Kenya loves dipping them into raspberr-wee sauce, Chloe loves that she can have some independence eating by herself without us cutting her food into little pieces first and I love that you get triple the crusty edges (my favorite part) for each piece of cooked toast since you cut each piece of bread into three sticks . There's truly nothing better then a recipe that fulfills everyone's needs!

    I love French toast and would love to make it for my 3 year old son. Any suggestions on how to replace the egg, as he’s allergic to them? I have tried using bananas in the past, but the result was was too mushy.

      I hope you don’t mind me sharing my ideas with you…I used to make french toast stick with the store bought cinnamon raisin bread dipped in egg substitute or egg whites and they turned out great. I had to stop buying the cinnamon raisin bread because I found out my daughter has a soy allergy which is in a lot of store brand breads. One day I ran out of eggs and just dipped the bread slices in pancake mix, added some vanilla extract and turned out super yummy and freezes very well. I added cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg too!

    I made these this morning for my 19 month old girl and they were very well-received :) I used to make french toast and served an entire piece to her and she struggled to finish it. Now I see what you mean about making a few simple alterations to make the food kid-friendly as I actually see the result! Thank you for the recipe and idea!

    I noticed a Shopping List category on the iPhone app but didn’t notice on a recipe where it said ” add to shopping list”
    So what exactly is that spot for ? Am I over looking something?

    • catherine

      October 23, 2012 at 11:26 am

      Currently there are two different shopping list things. We have the shopping list on the iPhone app which is a basic shopping list that I have created for everyone to use. It includes all the things that should always be stocked in your kitchen and pantry!

      We are also setting up ZipList, so if you see down below the recipe it says, “add to ZipList”. Click on that and it’ll add the recipe to your ZipList shopping list!

    I was given honey when I was under 18 months, and we are pretty sure why ended up getting severe arthritis. I waited until my kids were 21 months. Just my personal opinion.

    for french toast sticks recipe, any other alternative(s) for cinnamon and honey?

    • catherine

      March 1, 2012 at 12:13 pm

      You could use Agave or Sugar in place of the Honey. If you still want a sweet spice flavor, but don’t want to use cinnamon you could try nutmeg instead. Cloves would be yummy, too, but they’re a bit more powerful so use less.

    Just made these with an almost-week-old loaf of homemade honey/whole wheat bread. It made my near-stale bread divine! Ahhhh … one more reason to bake regularly. Especially since our 2-year-old gobbled them up!

    If you freeze these, how do you heat up the defrosted ones? I’m afraid the microwave will make them soggy.

    I’ve made a recipe very similar to this multiple times but I bake them all on a cookie sheet at once instead of using a skillet on the stove top. Soooo much easier!! 350 for 25 min. and turn them once half way through.

    What a great recipe! How important is it to use whole milk? My toddler doesn’t drink it anymore and we don’t buy it. Thanks! :)

    • catherine

      March 21, 2011 at 2:30 pm

      Whole milk is natural source of calcium which is important for your toddlers bones, I still give my kids whole milk and when I don’t, i give them rice milk :)

    Hi Catherine, thank you for another great recipe. I noticed you said to use a sauté or griddle pan. I don’t own any non-stick pans in my house, due to the carcinogens in the coating. Is there a line of non-stick pans you recommend and have researched, which are not harmful? Thank you!

    My 2 year old son is the pickiest eater ever; the only foods he’ll eat are bread and cheese. It’s so frustrating! So today after he refused scrambled eggs for breakfast, I made the French Toast Sticks and added a touch of powdered sugar on top to entice him….He loved it! Gobbled up 8 sticks in record time! Thank you! :)

    Just curious if there is a reason that soy milk is not listed as an alernative to cow’s/rice/almond — does soy milk not work well with this recipe? I’m dying to try it, my kids would love this, but we only use soy milk due to allergies.

    I made these using Texas Toast instead of regular bread. My kids thought they were delicious. I would suggest adding a little more milk because I ran out with a few more sticks to go.

    I’ve noticed a couple of Weelicious recipes, like this one, that include honey. My daughter is 15 months old and I would love to make these for her. However, I remember reading somewhere that babies under a certain age shouldn’t eat honey. Do you know what age that is?

      September 28, 2012 at 11:32 am

      just replace it with Agave!

      I seem to remember that it was 1 and under. I waited with my little one until she was almost 18 months before I gave her honey just to be on the safe side.

      • Suzanne

        July 16, 2010 at 7:16 pm

        Children under one shouldn’t have honey (or other syrups) because of the risk of botulism spores. One is a pretty generous guideline, I looked it up and the oldest reported age of a child with botulism from honey was 8 months.

        • Susan

          June 8, 2011 at 1:45 pm

          They shouldn’t have raw honey until 1 year old, but if it’s cooked like in this recipe, it’s ok. The heat kills the bacteria that could possibly be in the honey. This is what my doctor told us at our 6 month well baby visit.

        • Samantha

          February 28, 2012 at 7:27 am

          that’s not what i’ve heard… my understanding is that cooking actually DOES NOT kill the spores, so to be on the safe side, i have kept my son away from all honey for his first year.

        • Sarah

          June 8, 2011 at 8:16 pm

          Prevention of botulism….

          Although the botulinum toxin is destroyed by thorough cooking over the course of a few minutes, the spore itself is not killed by the temperatures reached with normal sea-level-pressure boiling, leaving it free to grow and again produce the toxin when conditions are right.[citation needed]

          A recommended prevention measure for infant botulism is to avoid feeding honey to infants less than 12 months of age.[2]
