Blueberry Pie Gluten Free French Toast Meal Prep is loaded with antioxidants and just enough sweetness!
Is it breakfast? Maybe it is dessert? Or perhaps it is a breakfast-like dessert or a dessert that you can have for breakfast? Either way, it's a great way to start the day and an even better way to eat blueberries, especially when they are in season!
Some people might say breakfast sweets have no place in a healthy regimen. We would definitively say nay to that, and ask those people to reconsider their view over a plate of this delicious French toast meal prep. Traditionally heavy and overly sweet, we lightened up this favorite by swapping butter for avocado oil cooking spray, eggs for egg whites, and highlighting the option to use your milk of choice.
How to Make Blueberry Pie Gluten-Free French Toast
There are two main parts to this recipe. The toast, and the blueberries. So, you can of course use whatever kind of bread you like, we specifically wanted to feature gluten free bread for this easy meal prep. Things are hard enough out there people, we don’t need to perpetuate a lack of French toast across any demographic. And because this recipe works with whatever kind of milk you’d like to use and that little swap of cooking butter for avocado oil spray, this French toast meal prep is also dairy free. French toast for everyone!
How to Make the Blueberry Topping
The topping for this easy meal prep is a simple compote, which is basically a fruit-based syrup. We decided to feature blueberries for this aspect, which just happen to have the highest antioxidant count of any fruit! They’re also a great source of potassium and fiber and are just plain delicious, though we know we don’t have to tell you that. We also incorporated another little extra bump of Vitamin C by adding orange juice to the compote. The flavor combination of sweet blueberries and tangy orange juice is the perfect topping for this French toast meal prep. And we won’t tell if you add a little extra syrup too! Blueberries love citrus, but it's a different move to pair it with orange (it usually gets paired with lemons or limes!)
Blueberry Pie French Toast Meal Prep Ingredients:
- 8 slices GF bread

- ½ cup egg whites

- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 cups frozen blueberries
- 1 TBS orange juice
- 2 TBS maple syrup
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
How to Store and Serve Blueberry Pie French Toast
Once it's all cooked, pop it into meal prep containers and stick it in the fridge, where it will be good for 4 or 5 days. Keep the blueberry "pie" topping (or compote, really) separate so it doesn't get the toast soggy. Reheat in the microwave or the toaster or toaster oven (we love the toaster oven). Heck, even the air fryer could work!
If you start this off as part of, say, a delicious weekend brunch, it can easily turn into a recurring weekday lift. There are a lot of things to get up for in the morning, and a perfect French toast meal prep is definitely one of them!
Plus, French toast is an awesome meal prep because you can also freeze it! Every aspect of this recipe works well once you freeze it. You can pop it right in the oven or toaster (or toaster oven) to reheat it. Maple syrup optional.
Tips About Substitutions
Feel free to make this with blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, or some combo thereof. You can also cook the berries down from frozen; they'll just take a little longer because they're more aqueous. But it'll work!
