Cinnamon French Toast Oatmeal (with ThinSlim bread)

Say you bite into a cookie–do you want to find a small chocolate chip or a BIG MASSIVE square of chocolate inside?

I’ve always been the chocolate square gal. I LOVE finding chunky and chewy things in my food and be utterly disappointed if I ordered healthy banana pancakes and only find three banana coins inside. What a bummer, right? I’ve created this French toast oatmeal recipe so that you can find the BIGGEST chunks of French toast inside and never miss cinnamon and sugar (my case Stevia) in every bite! If you don’t like big chunks of toast you can simply cut the bread into smaller pieces.

This is a recipe made with the ThinSlim plain bread, which has 1 gram of net carbs and 7 grams of protein! It’s a pretty chewy bread, which I love, but opt for other breads if that’s not you. In the future you will see a full post of my review of a sample pack of ThinSlim foods I received–and LOVED 🙂

RECIPE (oatmeal)

  • 1/2 rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup liquid of choice; I used coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup egg whites for the “eggy French toast” texture (vegan substitutions: 1-2 TBSP chia seeds)
  • 1/2 or 1 overripe banana
  • 1-2 TBSP sweetener of choice; I used Stevia
  • Opt: maple syrup/honey to drizzle, fruit, coconut, chocolate, etc.

RECIPE (French toast)

  • 1 slice of toasted sprouted, low carb or GF bread
  • 2-3 TBSP cashew, coconut or almond milk
  • 2 egg whites or 1 whole egg (vegan substitutions: 1 thoroughly mashed banana)
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Stevia or any other powdered/cane sugar
  • Opt: allspice, Stevia, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, etc.


  1. Heat a pot on high heat and pour in your liquid.
  2. Add the salt and bring liquid to a boil.
  3. Pour in your oats and stir until all grains are evenly distributed.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and allow the oats to simmer, stirring occasionally.
  5. Mash your banana and stir into your oats.
  6. Add in the egg whites or chia seeds and stir thoroughly until the egg whites completely cook and bubble.
  7. Stir in sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla extract and and optional ingredients. Set aside in a bowl or leave it in the pot after you turn the stovetop off.
  8. Toast your desired bread.
  9. Whisk egg, milk, cinnamon and Stevia in a deep-set plate or shallow bowl.
  10. Dip the bread slice in the mixture and let it soak for 30-45 seconds on each side.
  11. Heat a nonstick pan on medium-high heat.
  12. Pan-fry the toast on each side until golden brown or crispy.
  13. Cut the bread into squares and serve with the oatmeal.
  14. Top with optional ingredients such as cinnamon, strawberries, almond butter and coconut milk.


Are you a chocolate chip or chocolate chunk type of person? Have you ever been let down by the lack of add-ins when you eat something, say, THREE carrot slices in a beet carrot salad? 😉

  5. OMG YOU GENIUS and you have me drooling too – GAH! I WISH. I WANT!! You have inspired me to think of a cinnamon toast cereal type recipe for the future!!!!! ❤ thank you!


  6. Woah!! You’ve taken oatmeal to the next level with this AMAZING(!!) recipe. I totally wish i could dig into that bowl of goodness.

  8. I LOVE this idea! Coincidentally, this morning I was agonizing over whether to have oatmeal or French toast for breakfast. I ended up going with oatmeal, but wish I’d seen this first!


    1. Oh, and to answer your question: I’m more of a chocolate chip person (I just love the shape). And I’m always feeling let down by the lack of add-ins. If something’s called a pumpkin salad, I expect more than a few pieces of pumpkin!
