Breakfast foods can get boring when you are on a diet, but they don’t have to be. These skinny french toast muffins are fantastic, healthy and perfect for a grab and go breakfast.
The best part? They are only 2 Freestyle points per muffin on Weight Watchers!
I am spoiled. I can get breakfast at work anytime I want – and I will probably eat chicken sausage and scrambled eggs whenever I am in the office. Or I have a veggie omelet made to order…I know, I’m spoiled.
But sometimes I need a change and something new. A few weeks ago (when we were iced-in), I got antsy to try something different.
I also had never made french toast muffins before, so it was time to try something new.

I didn’t want traditional french toast because it’s harder to stop eating it. Maybe that’s just my problem with french toast, but the struggle is real.
I decided to try my hand at french toast muffins because it’s much easier to portion control a muffin than a casserole.
Oh these little muffins were so much better than I thought they would be. These are a wonderful kid friendly breakfast option too.
They were easy to make (that’s my favorite thing) and they tasted just like french toast. I added some syrup to mine and just enjoyed them.
Syrup is not included in the Freestyle points value, so keep that in mind as you are calculating your recipe in the recipe builder.

Skinny French Toast Muffins
- 8 slices whole wheat bread
- 2 cups egg beaters, original
- 2 cups plain Almond Milk
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Break the slices of bread into small pieces and place them in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the rest of the liquid ingredients. Add the liquid ingredients to the bread slices and stir to coat completely.
- Carefully place the mixture in a sprayed muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the bread is crispy and a toothpick comes out clean when you insert it.
I will need to make these again to see about the liquid. I honestly can’t remember if there was a lot of liquid in the mix. I have made these multiple times, but I don’t remember there being excess liquid.
There is a great deal of liquid in these? I was concerned, but I went ahead and tried to bake them..they did not get done in the middle. Is the liquid amount correct? It says “coat” but there is a lot of liquid still there…do you leave the liquid in the mixing bowl and just scoop the bread pieces out leaving the liquid behind?
Thank you! I loved making these and have made them a few times since coming up with the recipe. It’s so easy to portion control with the muffin tins.
Love these cute muffins! A great portion-control idea. My kids would love them!
I’m not sure why they wouldn’t get done in the middle. Did you keep them in the oven 30 minutes? You probably could have kept them in there longer too, if that wasn’t long enough.
Just made these muffins and they never got done in the middle, not sure what I did wrong
I haven’t tested that, but possibly. I refrigeratored mine just because I knew they had egg in them. But if they are sealed in a container, it might be OK. I’m just wary when it comes to leaving egg or egg recipes out on the counter.
Can these be left out at room temp in a sealed container? I refrigerated them last time and that’s got a little soggy. Thanks in advance!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I used a regular muffin pan (I don’t have a mini one, actually). Enjoy these!
I’m a big fan of French toast and am anxious to try this recipe since I follow the Freestyle Weight Watchers diet.
Do you make these in the regular or mini size muffin tins?
One egg equals 1/4 cup of egg beaters. So 2 cups would be 8 eggs, if my math is correct.
If using eggs and not egg beaters how many would you use?
Oh that’s a great suggestion. I wonder if they have that light bread here in the US. I haven’t heard of it before, but I don’t eat much bread at the moment. I hope the lower points didn’t also lessen the taste.
Made with 35 calorie light bread it takes the points down to 1 Flex Smart Point 🙂
I personally haven’t tried to freeze them, but I don’t see why not. I did refrigerate them for a couple of days, and they were good re-heated in the microwave. I imagine freezing them would be similar.
Can I freeze the French toast muffins
Yes, you definitely could. When this was created, eggs weren’t zero points, but they are now. Enjoy!
Could I use eggs instead of egg beaters?
Yes that would work. I don’t think you need to change the ingredients either since it’s skim milk. You might want to cook them a little longer.
Can I use skim milk instead? My son is allergic to nuts.
These are so delicious and well worth making for a quick and simple breakfast. We only use Almond milk (my husband can’t drink real milk), and I love the taste of it. So easy, yet delicious.
oh these look scrumptious! I love the use of almond milk because i can’t have dairy. Yum!
Thank you! They are so delicious and easy to make. I hope you try these and love them.
Oh, these look great! Easy and healthy too. Thanks so much for sharing, Kristyn! 🙂
I love french toast too, and sometimes it’s just not healthy. It’s so hard to stop myself, so why not create a muffin instead? These were amazing too!
I love french toast, and like you it’s hard to stop eating it. Great alternative! Portion control at its finest!
My sister makes a french toast casserole that is delicious, but I find it hard to portion control. So, I thought why not do the same thing in a muffin tin? This recipe is easy and tastes just like french toast!
Yummmm I love using muffin tins to portion control and I’ve never thought of French toast! I feel like my whole world has opened up haha.
