I have used sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon powder in the whole wheat french toast recipe but you can make whole wheat french toast without vanilla and without cinnamon too if you don’t want the flavors of vanilla or cinnamon.
Also you can replace the white sugar with organic coconut palm sugar if you wish or you can reduce the amount of sweetener altogether if you don’t want your whole wheat french toast to be very sweet.
You can also use natural sweeteners like pure fresh maple syrup instead of sugar but if you are using maple syrup, I suggest you to reduce the amount of milk accordingly, as they both are liquids.

Let us see how to make the easy french toast batter and also how to make the french toast using whole grain brown bread slices.
Whole wheat french toast recipe is also very easy like the white bread french toast recipe, but these are more healthy due to increased fiber content from the whole wheat bread.
As I mentioned above, brown bread french toast is supposed to be more healthier, but it can be easily made just like white bread french toast.
While I have noticed that white bread toast is always more softer, due to the softness of the white bread, whole wheat french toast is more crunchy and has a chewy texture you will love if you love your french toast to be more crunchy in texture.
Brown bread toast is also very delicious and crispy, although it is often less soft compared to the white bread toast.
If you like a crispy and filling french toast that is tasty and healthy as well, it is best to go for the brown bread french toast as it is made of whole wheat rather than from the refined flour.
I highly recommend you to use a whisker to whisk the eggs with milk to make the batter for french toast. If you just mix with a spoon, you have to really beat very hard with your hands or else the eggs may not be whisked very smoothly, so there is a very possible chance that the french toast can turn little eggy in texture (which means you may see some cooked eggs on top of the bread slices).
This has happened to me and I really don’t like the eggy texture in my french toast, however my kids don’t seem to mind it, so after all it is your choice.
So here is the recipe for brown bread french toast which is delicious, crunchy, chewy and crispy!
