Crunchy French Toast

I love breakfast foods. Most of them are like desserts, but you can have them for a whole meal! You have a sugar rush to start your day. Isn’t that the best thing ever? This crunchy french toast is a fun twist on french toast. I have had some frosted flakes in my pantry for a while. The girls haven’t wanted to eat it whatsoever, not sure why not but whatever. I figured I would try to use some of it up. I had seen some recipes where people used Captain Crunch or corn flakes as a kind of batter or outside. I figured I would give it a try. The end result was fantastic. The kids really enjoyed it and thats good enough for me. I hope you try it.

    I make a variation of this all the time, try it out, I bet you will love it!

    Smash the Frosted Flakes up a little bit mix grated coconut in with it, dip your French toast in it and fry it in butter, sooo good! You can use maple syrup or coconut syrup.
