Key Ingredients for these Healthy French Toast Wraps
Whole Wheat Tortillas-
I typically use medium tortillas, but you can use larger or smaller depending on what you can find.
Siggis Skyr Yogurt – I was challenged to participate in the #mysiggiscChallenge where some of Canada’s top creators and registered dietitian’s are competing to create the most original recipe using skyr yogurt. I love this yogurt because it’s high in protein, made with 100% Canadian milk and real ingredients with no preservatives, thickeners, artificial sweeteners, flavours or colours. I used the plain variety in this recipe, but even their vanilla and fruit flavours have 25% less sugar than other vanilla or fruit yogurts in Canada.
Fruit- I used fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries to fill my French toast wraps but feel free to use whatever fruit you have on hand.
Chia Jam- This is one of the most popular recipes on my blog for a reason. I have a batch in my fridge every week because it is a great nutrient-dense low sugar jam. Feel free to substitute your favourite jam or preserves if you don’t have it on hand.
Toppings of your choice- Nuts, seeds, powdered sugar, maple syrup, honey, the sky is the limit so add whatever you and your family loves!
Tips for making this crepe-style French toast
Unlike traditional French toast, it’s really important that you don’t soak the tortillas for too long in the egg mixture. A very quick little dunk is all the time it really needs to get a little egg and cinnamon action.
If you’re making a big batch, I also recommend rolling them up as soon as they come out of the pan hot. This way, the wraps will take on the rolled shape before they cool and won’t harden flat (which will make them harder to roll with your yogurt later on.)
What to serve with these breakfast wraps
These sweet wraps are a perfect brunch or breakfast entree all on their own. If you want to serve them as part of a larger meal, I would recommend serving them with a frittata, strata, egg cups, or scrambled eggs.
FAQ about this Recipe
Can I make the wraps without pan-frying?
Sure! But they won’t be French toast flavoured. You can easily just take a whole wheat wrap, stuff it with fruit and yogurt and call it an easy breakfast or snack!
Are these sweet wraps kid-friendly?
Oh yes! What child wouldn’t like wraps that taste like French toast stuffed with fruit and creamy skyr yogurt? My kid is a HUGE skyr yogurt fan (he calls it ice cream because it’s so creamy) so he inhaled these French toast wraps.
Can I use different fruit and toppings?
Absolutely! Mango, pineapple, banana, apples, pears, orange segments, nuts, granola and more would all be delicious in here.
What can I use if I don’t want to make chia jam?
This chia jam will change your life, I promise you that. But if you’re in a pinch, you can either skip it all together or add your favourite fruit preserves or jam.
How long will these last in the fridge?
I don’t recommend pre-filling the French toast wraps. However, if you want to make these ahead, you could pan-fry and pre-roll the wraps (see my tip above), and then add the yogurt and fruit when you’re ready to eat.
