Apple French Toast Cups are the combination of 2 things my grandchildren love, french toast (Caleb) and apple sauce (Keegan).  One ‘sleepover’ weekend we were deciding what to eat for breakfast and each one wanted their pick so I put them together and the result was a fun and flavorful breakfast they were both satisfied with.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 large apple (golden delicious, gala, fuji are good choices), cut into cubes
  • 1/2 can (6 oz) unsweetened frozen apple juice concentrate
  • oil for muffin pan

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 6 cup muffin pan.

    Saute the apples, cinnamon and apple juice

  2. In a medium skillet, saute the apples, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and apple juice on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the apples are soft and the juice is reduced to a thin syrup. Reduce heat to low if the juice is cooking down too fast before the apples soften.

    Mix together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and remaining cinnamon

  3. In a medium bowl mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, and remaining cinnamon until well combined.

    Fold the bread cubes into the egg mixture

  4. Fold the bread cubes into the egg mixture.
  5. Add just the apples into the bread mixture, reserving the juice. Gently mix until combined.

    Fill muffin tins with the french toast mixture

  6. Fill the muffin pan evenly with the mixture.
  7. Bake about 20 minutes or until set.
  8. To serve, place one French toast cup on a plate and spoon the reserved juice/syrup over the cup.
