Ginger French Toast Instructions

  1. Peel skin from the outside of your Ginger Root. With a parmesan cheese grater, grate 1 teaspoon. (A secret for future reference is to snap off a section of your peeled ginger root, secure in a plastic freezer bag and freeze it! Frozen ginger root becomes a superfine powder when grated.)
  2. Glaze your griddle, skillet or pan with 4 teaspoons of Organic Coconut Oil and preheat on medium high. (As Coconut Oil heats, it will turn from white to clear.)
  3. Whisk 4 eggs together with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger and 1/2 cup of cream (you can also use buttermilk, whole milk or other milk substitute)
  4. Dip your bread slices in your gingered egg batter quickly and lay them on the hot griddle. (This is where a heavenly aroma begins to arise!)
  5. Flip slices and cook both sides to a golden brown perfection. (about 5-7 minutes)
  6. Congratulations! You just whipped up a healthy and amazingly delicious Ginger French Toast recipe! Enjoy just as is, or with your choice of maple syrup, butter, or powdered sugar on top.

Ginger Root

Ginger Root is amazing in so many ways.

I always have lots of it on hand in the kitchen as well as a big chunk of it peeled and frozen.

Grating or slicing up the frozen Ginger Root eliminates the "strings" from the entire Ginger equation, and is so easy to do.


*TIP* Freeze your Ginger Root

This is my chunk of frozen ginger root that I shave into a fine powder pile within seconds using a serrated blade.

      Interesting recipe. I've never heard of french toast with ginger and coconut oil. But it does seem good and your image of the french toast helps to show that. It also seems pretty easy and quick to make.

      Welcome to HubPages! I can tell I am going to gain weight from reading your hubs - the French Toast recipe here has my mouth watering. I've never thought of adding ginger (or coconut) to this morning favorite, so I am entranced. I look forward to reading your hubs!

      Thank you Marcy. Oh and not to worry about the weight thing, I prepare and cook plenty of healthy nutritious meals also, which I will be posting as well. But my kids and I love us some treats once in a while too. :)

      This sounds like a good healthy meal. There are many health benefits to eating ginger and coconut oil.

      YES! I keep tons of Ginger Root on hand. I love it. As well as Coconut Oil. I substitute it for regular cooking oil when I can get away with it and the kids never notice the difference. If I told them ahead of time, they'd turn their little noses up at the food before even trying it. Ginger and Coconut Oil are just 2 of the many ways I "sneak" in some extra nutrition to their picky little diets. Thank you Diana Lee for your comment. :)

      This looks delicious - I love ginger and have got addicted to ginger tea in the afternoons. But this looks like serious comfort food - definitely one to try!

      Ha! Riviera Rose, I just finished a comment on my last page to you about how I think that I am addicted to the taste of Ginger!

      Hey, at least it is a healthy addiction and I will not have to attend Ginger Anonymous Meetings or get a Ginger Anonymous Sponsor to work 12 Steps of Recovery from a Ginger addiction. :) ha ha

      Now I am curious, Kasman - how do you "share" a Hub?

      Do you see at the top right of this hub, the Facebook like button, the twitter like button, pinterest like button, and hubpages followers? Tap on the hubpages followers button and it'll shoot it out to whoever is following you so that they can see it too.

      Hmm I'd like to ask what part of California do you reign from, but I am not sure if it is ok with Hub Pages to chat like this ... I am not completely informed on all the "appropriate methods of madness" here quite yet. I suppose this would be where sending "fan mail" would be utilized? Or am I wrong on that?

      I've been having French toast and it's one of my fave breakfast items, but I've never used coconut oil or ginger... though I could just imagine the nice aroma of the two ingredients in a freshly made French toast. Might try to include them. Thanks for sharing!

      Anyway, why is the URL of your hub different and unrelated to the topic, even as I refresh the page? (hub/drug-addiction-is-never-hopeless). Or that my browser or me that has the problem. Just noticed it. Anyway, thanks again for the recipe. :)

      Idigwebsites Thank you for your wonderful comment and yes it smells divine. As for the URL problem here, it is a big dissapointment for me. This was my very first Hub that I wrote for Hub Pages and my original idea was to write an article aimed at helping people recover from addiction. This article is a project that I am still working on, and I was at a disadvantage when I first started out here because I did not know enough about how it all worked. I did not realize that I was creating my French Toast article under this URL and now I do not know how to change it. I'm still learning tons of stuff about writing and publishing on line bit still not sure how to fix this issue with the other URL.
