When we first wake up in the morning my son Jax asks for a snack (cue eye roll), thankfully he considers yogurt a snack. That buys me a little time to throw something together for him. Lately he’s been really into sugary cereals so if I’m not quick enough with a suggestion I’ll get a request for one of those. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ok with him having a ‘kids cereal’ every now and then. I try to keep the “healthier” versions of them in the house and suggest he accompanies them with a Hulk Shake (which he will always say yes to). On most days he’s open to other suggestions, especially if I give him choices. On this morning I asked him if he wanted Spiderman Waffles or Tyrannosaurus Rex French Toast. Fast forward to me sifting through his toy bin for inspiration. 


• whole wheat bread

• 4 eggs 

• 1 tsp vanilla

• 1/2 tsp cinnamon

• coconut oil

• 1/4 cup milk 

• 1 apple (any kind)


Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Everyone has their own French Toast Recipe, here’s our favorite. 


French Toast

1. Prepare your bread wash, beat eggs, milk, vanilla & cinnamon

2. Dip bread in mixture, coating both sides evenly

3.  Coat a small skillet, frying pan or griddle with coconut oil

4. Cook bread slices over a medium heat until browned on both sides

5. At this point set aside to cool off a bit so you don’t burn your fingers 

**I slice the apple up at the beginning of the prep so if things start to take longer than expected I have a snack ready that wont spoil his appetite but will tide him over. 

Let's Build a Dinosaur

Bread Assembly

Any time I make food for my son out of french toast I always limit it to 2 pieces of bread. Below shows the pattern I cut into the bread. 

Apple Details

Using one of the slices I cut a triangle for the eye and 2 rows of sharp teeth.

Once you have all of your ingredients prepped grab a pretty dish and start plating and adding any last-minute garnishes.
In ours I added a piece of turkey bacon for the dino to stand on and a chocolate chip to his eye.

Voilå, Tyrannosaurus French Toast. 

If you try this recipie I’d love to know what you think!
