Overnight Stuffed French Toast Recipe (Low Fat, THM E)

Want to remember this? Save it for later!

Overnight stuffed French toast makes one of the best Sunday morning breakfasts… mainly because you prep the whole thing the night before! It takes ten minutes to throw together, and you can simply pop it in the oven the next morning for a quick and delicious breakfast.

I’m not sure about you, but Sunday mornings in our house are hectic! I’ve always struggled with making it to church on time. As our family started growing, this has not gotten easier. Breakfasts like this save my bacon (but if you’re a Trim Healthy Mama, please save the bacon for an S meal ;).

And the best part? It tastes like a delightful, gourmet breakfast that you’d get at a fancy bed and breakfast. It’s so easy that you can even pretend you’re a guest at a B&B from the comfort of your own home!

Toppings for THM’er’s

Overnight Stuffed French Toast Recipe Low Fat THM EMy husband is more lenient with his THM plan (he’s a runner and at goal weight), so he uses a dash of pure maple syrup to top his stuffed French toast. For great weight loss friendly toppings, consider Polaner’s All-Fruit and fat free ReddiWhip (if you’re a Drive Thru Sue sort of gal). It tastes so decedent!

You can also make your own sugar-free maple syrup (recipe found in the first Trim Healthy Mama cookbook) or use stevia-sweetened Greek yogurt and berries.

Benefits of Sprouted Bread

Overnight Stuffed French Toast Recipe (THM E, Low Fat)Sprouted bread can offer you some awesome health benefits over regular bread. The process to create sprouted grains involves soaking the grain until it starts to sprout (lol, the name makes sense, right?).

Once it has started growing, it’s drained and milled for use.

The super helpful and healthful thing is that the sprouting/growing process involves the release of enzymes and nutrients that are great for your health. These nutrients help to blunt the glycemic (blood sugar) response of the carbohydrates from the grains and can make them much easier to digest. It makes bread better for your blood sugar levels, you get more vitamins and minerals, and all that in a more digestible form! Sprout, lil grains, sprout!
Um, I’m pretty sure eating sprouted bread is practically like eating vegetables… 😉

Store-Bought Sprouted Bread Options


Ezekiel sprouted bread does a great job in this recipe, and it’s usually easy to find in the freezer section of your local grocery store.

Nature’s Own makes a really tasty sprouted bread, but I’ve heard that it’s been discontinued. I used to be able to find it at my local Dollar Tree (woohoo! bonus points for being just $1/loaf), but I haven’t seen it there lately. To me, it tasted the most like off-plan, store-bought bread. Check your local Dollar Tree or Walmart for this option.

Aldi’s has a tasty on plan option called Knock Your Sprouts Off Bread. I’ve been using this one lately or making my own.

Make Your Own Sprouted Bread

If you have a bread machine, this option is super fast and easy! I use One Degree Sprouted Whole Wheat flour, and it comes out delicious every time!

I love this recipe from Joyful Jane for my bread machine, and I’ve heard great things about this easy sourdough recipe from Gwen’s Nest.

If You Need A Little More Protein…

My favorite is to add THM collagen to my coffee. It stirs in beautifully and doesn’t seem to alter the flavor of the coffee.

You can also make some quick protein milk by adding flavored protein powder to almond milk. Easy chocolate or strawberry milk!

Bottom Line About Stuffed French Toast:

You need some overnight stuffed French toast in your life. It can make your tastebuds happy, your body healthy, and your life less stressed on a busy morning.

  1. Tried this for the first time today. Delicious!!! I did add the pumpkin and cinnamon for a ‘fall’ flavor. Thank you for the recipe!

    1. I’ve done so without any problems yet, but please be careful. You might want to pull the pan out of the fridge for a while (20-30) minutes before baking. I also sometimes pull the pan from the fridge, put it in the oven, and then turn the oven on the preheat.

    1. Hi, Janell! If you stick to the serving size,you should be within the 5g added fat limits. My Neufchatel cheese is from Aldi, and it has 6g fat per ounce; the whole recipe calls for 3 oz or 18g fat for 4 servings. We’ll be just under 5g added fat per serving, so I just don’t add any extra butter or fats to my finished French toast portion. 🙂

  2. I couldn’t fit 4 sandwiches in an 8 x 8 pan without them overlapping! What am I doing wrong? When you cook it in the morning, are you supposed to remove the covering?

    1. Oh no! Sorry to hear that the bread is giving you trouble, Tina! Just squish it into the pan as best you can, and if your pieces are much too large, you can try trimming the crusts off. We’ve had the recipe work well with Nature’s Own Sprouted Bread (it’s the size of standard grocery store prepackaged bread loaves) and Aldi’s Sprouted bread (that’s a bit smaller loaf size so sometimes there’s extra wiggle room); I also use a glass pan and the sides are a little curved so maybe that gives me more room? I’ve also made this recipe with 6 sandwiches in a 9×13 pan and usually have a little leftover room. Yes, please remove the cover before baking in the morning (I’ll update the directions to be sure they reflect that). I usually cover mine with plastic wrap so that I don’t forget to pull it off before baking. Hope that helps!

    1. Thanks!! Even my 3 yr old loves this recipe; hope y’all enjoy it, too! 🙂 You can also make it a little more decadent for the kiddos by adding an extra ounce or two of cream cheese. 🙂

    1. Hi, Connie!
      I’ve made it with both the sprouted bread from Aldi and Nature’s Own Sprouted Bread (which I like better, but I’ve heard may be discontinued). I haven’t made this recipe with homemade bread yet, but I’m sure it would be delicious! My favorite sprouted bread recipe is from Joyful Jane and here’s the link: http://www.joyful-jane.com/thm-easy-sprouted-whole-grain-and-honey-bread-machine-bread-e/
      Hope that you’re having a great day!

      1. I’m out of cream cheese and can’t run to the store because of quarantine. Can I use laughing cow cheese instead?

        1. Hi, Chis! I haven’t tried it yet with Laughing Cow Cheese, but I think it could be great (with the plain flavor of course)! Let me know if you try it. I think we’ll want to stick to one cheese per two slices of bread to stick to THM E guidelines (but check your fat content in your cheese; you might be able to do 1-2 wedges per person).
