You all should know something. I bought a new computer. I took the plunge and bought a Mac. That’s some expensive sh*t right there. It pretty much cost the same as my first car…which is the same car I have now. As you can tell, I don’t love to spend a ton of money. Unless it’s on something that’s covered in chocolate or cooked to a medium rare. But this was a must. Gotta feed you. Gotta blog. Gotta annoy you daily.

I still don’t know how to use it. And I’m not going to try to teach myself. Because then I’d just miss out on so many possibilities. I may even start making some cooking videos again. More embarrassment to share for the world wide web. Like I haven’t ruined my name enough as it is.

So I had big plans for this weekend. BIG plans. I didn’t have to work at the gym so I planned on doing something crazy. Like drink heavily and sleep in the next day. Especially because it was my friend Sarah’s 30th birthday. And this girl looks RIDICULOUS for being 30. It makes me wish I was 30. If my ass EVER looks like that, my life will be complete. But my ass didn’t even look that good before puberty hit and genetics took over. So my life may stay incomplete. I guess I’m cool with that.

But you know what birthdays mean…it means it’s time to drink. And get far more drunk than the person’s birthday it is. Well not really, it means eat delicious food to me. But I thought it would be a good weekend to consume alcohol. I was wrong. Found that out when my stomach decided to take on a stomach bug. How the hell did I get that? I definitely didn’t eat anything weird. Definitely haven’t been making out with anyone to catch something from them. It’s bullish*t. I should not have to take on any sort of illness that makes my insides feel like they are flipping inside out unless I make the conscious decision to make out with someone who has the same sketch illness.

I feel single frustration rants coming on. I feel em’.

What in the hell am I going to be for Halloween?

Pumpkin Bread French Toast

4.9 from 21 reviews

  • Yield: 2-3 1x



For the bread

  • 1 cup pepitas
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 6 dried dates, pitted
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons Raw Honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt

To make it into french toast


  1. Preheat over to 375 degrees.
  2. First we gotta roast those pepitas. Place a tablespoon of coconut oil in a medium sized pan over medium. Toss your pepitas in and roast on all sides for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant.
  3. Now add your pepitas to afood processor and process them down until they become a flour.
  4. Add your dates and puree.
  5. Then add your pumpkin puree, coconut flour, coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract, eggs, and all other ingredients for your bread. Puree it all up until smooth.
  6. Grease a loaf pan with some coconut oil, pour in mixture and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  7. Let cool.
  8. When pumpkin bread has cooled, whisk together your french toast ingredients (minus the coconut oil) in a shallow bowl.
  9. Heat up a skillet or griddle and add your coconut oil to it.
  10. Cut your bread into 1/2-1 inch slices, dip them in your egg mixture on both sides, then place on griddle to cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  11. Top french toast off with maple syrup and grass fed butter (or coconut butter for dairy free) because that’s what all french toast should be topped with.
  12. Consume it. Thank the world that it’s fall. And love life.

    I doubled the recipe and baked half in muffin tins, for 30 minutes, and half in a loaf pan. The bread came out moist and was delicious. The next day I realized I used 1/2 cup pumpkin instead of 1/3 cup, because the numbers in the recipe were too small (maybe you can make them bigger?), but it didn’t seem to affect the taste. I will definitely make the bread again, but will mostly likely use 1/2 the recommended amount of honey.

    I just made this tonight and while it is tasty, I think I may have done something wrong. The batter was very thick and the bread is very dense… It never really poofed up much. This isn’t as “wow” as the banana bread French toast (I could eat that every day!) and I was expecting a similar texture. I added the eggs (saw a previous comment) but I only used 2 Tbs of coconut oil – one in the pepitats and one when I put in the eggs, coconut flour, etc. Should there have been one in the pepitats and two in the batter? I made this while the banana bread was cooking, and again that texture was fine, so I know it wasn’t bad baking powder or baking soda.

    Hello! Does anyone know if the pumpkin seeds need to be shelled or can I just take them from the same pumpkin I’m using? Thanks!!

    1. juli says:

      you need to get pepitas, which are raw pumpkin seeds. don’t use the ones from the pumpkin itself. they don’t puree like raw ones do

      1. Amy says:

        I’m confused by this. Aren’t the seeds from the pumpkin itself in the most raw form you can get them? Or are you talking about pumpkin seeds without the shell? My grocery store has pumpkin seeds that look like what I pull out of a pumpkin, but I need to still use those instead? Thank you!

        1. juli says:

          shelled pumpkin seeds!

  4. Melissa says:

    I want to try this tomorrow but I have everything except pepitas. Can I leave them our or sub something else? Thanks!

    1. juli says:

      you could use a nut instead, like almonds or walnuts

      1. Melissa says:

        So I can use almond flour I have? How much of the almond flour? Will it really alter the taste?

  5. Morgan says:

    I know this is an old post but QUESTION…I purchased “raw pepitas” and they are green. Is the green part the shell? or is this how looks shelled? Thanks for the amazing recipes! Your food has made artificial food taste artificial :p

    1. juli says:

      they are raw so they aren’t toasted, that’s why they are that color. you don’t have to peel them or anything

  6. Lora says:

    I did not read all the comments so I apologize if this was already asked. But would this be good with your Chai Pumpkin Bread? I was thinking you could get two unique breakfasts out of one loaf. We are excited to try the Chai Pumpkin Bread.

    1. juli says:

      For sure!

  7. Brad says:

    Why have I not seen this until now… oh man!
    My wife makes the best french toast, but THIS is printed out nice and neat, which I’ll suggest for Saturday morning!

    If I can wait that long…

    THANK YOU for this recipe!

    PS – awesome site by the way
