Servings 6 people


  • Cutting board for apples
  • Apple peeler and slicer
  • Bowl and whisk
  • Frying pans (2)


  • 6 pieces bread of choice
  • 4 apples peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 splash milk or milk substitute of choice
  • 2 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)


Apple cinnamon compote

  • In a separate pan (or small pot), over low-medium heat, sauté the sliced apples with the 1/2  of the one teaspoon of cinnamon in a tablespoon of butter or butter substitute. 
  • Once the apples begin to cook down, add the maple syrup and reduce to low heat.  This will make the apple topping. 
  • Let it simmer while you get started on the French toast!

French toast

  • In a bowl, combine the eggs with milk/milk substitute, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (leave the other half) and the vanilla.
  • Submerge one to two pieces of bread at a time in the egg mixture so that each side is completely coated.
  • Heat one tablespoon of butter or butter sub in a large pan over medium heat for a few minutes, then start cooking the bread on each side until it’s golden brown.  It should take two to three minutes on each side.
  • Repeat the process until you have cooked off all the French toast.
  • Plate it and top with your apple cinnamon compote, and enjoy!
