French toast is an any-time-of the year breakfast. Some of our favorite french toast combinations are traditional (just vanilla), cinnamon french toast, cinnamon roll french toast (think vanilla glazed), and pumpkin french toast.
Recently we’ve been enjoying gluten-free cinnamon raisin french toast in the form of a muffin.
Both my husband and I work full time and our schedules are crazy.
Between our kids going to different schools this year, having split work schedules, and our kids having so many activities (which is good for them) we are finding less and less time to cook and bake.
I’m still sticking with my motto: Have fun and keep it simple.
A few weeks ago, when I was working on food prep for the week, I decided to make Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Muffins. I drizzled on some vanilla glaze and Viola!
We had a fancy-shmancy breakfast on-the-go.
We don’t make french toast every weekend because most weekends half of us our out of the house by 8AM and the other half is getting ready. Although french toast isn’t difficult to make, it does take time to dip and cook each piece.
Having the option to grab a Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin French Toast muffin has really helped us on busy mornings.
I usually make up a batch and we each grab one, along with a piece of fruit, and head out the door.
With four of us, a batch gets us through three days. I don’t make them every week because we like to switch up our breakfast choices, but they are super helpful and tasty when we are in a pinch for time.
Plus, they make great birthday breakfasts when my girls have sleepovers.
The next time you’re in a pinch for time and you want to make something quick, filling, but special – these Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Muffins fill all three requirements.
