The Perfect Cinnamon French Toast Recipe For Your Sunday Morning Brunch For Two

If you read my post about Elevating Your Mindset, you know that I am all about intentional living.

What does this French Toast Recipe have to do with intentional living?

Joel and I create breakfast dates with food that we love instead of traditional date nights. Especially now, being new parents. On Sundays, we slow down and put on Billie Holiday. Starting our morning slowly with a quality breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day. Even more important than eating breakfast is eating delicious healthy options. We like to make food that is both good and good for us to increase our energy throughout the day. This Sunday, Joel and I will be putting on our favorite tunes and topping our French Toast with Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup from Trader Joe's.

I created this recipe for a healthier alternative to your typical dairy and sugar-loaded French Toast recipes.

I included both ingredient options for you to choose based on your craving. Joel and I use the healthier version because we like it just as much if not more than the original style of French Toast.

You can create a romantic atmosphere for two or host a fun brunch for friends by setting your table with candles, a table runner, a glass pitcher of mimosas, or fresh flowers. It's a little extra work, but adding small details sets the mood for your brunch scene.

It allows you to host an experience rather than just breakfast.

We create recipes that make enough for us while producing less waste. It cuts back our weekly shopping while still making enough for us to have another round the next morning. We eat about 2-3 slices per serving, but if you're hosting friends you can easily double this recipe.

We top our French Toast with pure maple syrup. If the Vermont Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup that I mentioned earlier is not in season, I use any of the pure maple syrups from Trader Joe's. You can top it with your favorite toppings from honey, syrup, berries or almond butter. My favorite creamy almond butter is by Maranatha.

Easy Cinnamon Brioche French Toast recipe for two that requires one bowl and can easily be doubled when cooking for more than two.


  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup of oat or almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 Loaf of Sourdough, whole grain bread, or Brioche (but it's less healthy)
  • 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil, plant-based or European butter for pan
  • Pure Maple Syrup (optional)
  • Berries for topping (optional)
  • Almond Butter (optional)


  1. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat with 1 tablespoon of butter. You will want your pan to heat slowly, otherwise the french toast will brown on the outside too quickly while the inside is still soggy. 
  2. Add your eggs to a bowl, whisk, then add your flaxseed, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Once your pan is hot, but not smoking, dredge one slice of your bread at a time in the egg mix on both sides. You will want to work quickly and only let the bread soak for a second. If you leave it to soak too long it will get soggy and fall apart.
  4. Place your bread in the pan, adding a little more butter if needed, and brown your toast 2-3 minutes per side. 
  5. Your slices should turn golden brown pretty quickly. If they are not turning brown quickly enough, turn your heat up slightly. If they are browning too fast, your pan is too hot.
  6. Repeat the steps to coat your slices and place them in the pan until you have your desired amount per serving. 


If cooking for two, you might have leftover egg mix depending on how many slices that you cook. You can place the egg mix in the fridge, then whisk it to combine ingredients before cooking. I recommend using it by the next day.

This recipe is enough for 2-3 slices for two people for two meals. You can easily double this recipe if cooking for more than two people. I always like to start with a smaller recipe to reduce waste and add to it when necessary.
