Crazy amazing Pumpkin French Toast made healthier by using egg whites and Dave’s Killer Bread! This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dave’s Killer Bread. The opinions and text are all mine.
My all-time favorite breakfast is hands-down, french toast. My mom would make it all the time when I was a kid. I think it’s my favorite because I love bread. Like, love love.
If you offered me the choice of candy or bread, I would without a doubt pick the bread. Bread over sweets any day!
I love a good piece of whole wheat, slathered in butter. Or a few pieces of toast, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. But mostly, some good ‘ol pumpkin french toast.
But not all bread is created equal. There are definitely those brands that rise above and beyond the normal bread realm.
Have you by chance heard of Dave’s Killer Bread? It is ALL over my local grocery store. It’s insanely popular, and with good reason. It not only tastes amazing, but it contains NO fillers. None!
All of Dave’s Killer Bread products contain no artificial preservatives, no artificial ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup. How’s that for healthy?! (And how cute is that guitar-playing, muscular dude on the packaging?!)
There are two new kinds of Dave’s Killer Bread on the shelves (among other really great varieties): 100% Whole Wheat and Seeded Honey Wheat. Both are soft and absolutely delicious.
The 100% Whole Wheat is the first Non-GMO Project verified, certified organic, 100% whole wheat bread that has 4 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber & absolutely nothing artificial. The Seeded Honey Wheat is packed with seeds on the inside for the perfect crunch and a punch of protein – 5 grams! Plus 5 grams of fiber and mega omegas.
Putting bread of this quality with pumpkin and making it into french toast? Yes, please!
This pumpkin french toast is made healthier by not only using Dave’s Killer Bread, but also using egg whites instead of the whole eggs, Vitamin C packed pumpkin puree, and spices to create a world-class, healthier, delicious pumpkin french toast your whole family will love! This recipe makes 3 french toast but is easy to double or triple.
Go pick up some Dave’s Killer Bread at your local grocery store – it’s the #1 best-selling organic bread in the United States! I promise you will not regret giving it a try to make this Pumpkin French Toast! 🙂

I am a massive French toast fan but have never made a pumpkin version before. Thanks for the great recipe and ample inspiration – I definitely will be trying out your recipe.
Does it have to be Dave’s Killer Bread? It’s not offered in Vermont (I just checked the website). Is there a similar bread that cn be used that is more widely distributed?
Hi Deedra! I am so sad you don’t have Dave’s Killer Bread. 🙁 But you can use any variety of whole wheat bread from your local store. I hope you give it a try!
Jen! I just made this recipe today and it was AMAZING! So festive & seriously delicious! And thanks for the intro to Dave’s Bread, it really is so yummy, and I found it at Costco, score!
