Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast

Get inspired for breakfast, brunch—or dessert! This Easy Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast is a hit in every household. Made with our Sprouted Power™ Soft Wheat bread to sneak in a little extra whole grain goodness, this delicious recipe easily satisfies every member of your family—parents and picky kids alike!

Instead of individually dipping and pan-frying each slice of bread—like you would in a regular french toast recipe—simply add everything to the slow cooker, and let it soak overnight! Then all you have left to do is turn the slow cooker on about 2 hours before you want to eat. Any leftovers can be easily reheated in the microwave and enjoyed all week.

Save time and stress by prepping your slow cooker french toast the day before you need it. It’s super easy and a little meal preparation goes a long way—the overnight soak gives the bread plenty of time to soak up the sweet, buttery, cinnamon flavour.

What’s the Best Sprouted Bread for French Toast?

Any Silver Hills Bakery sprouted bread can make beautiful french toast—it all depends on how fluffy or hearty you like it. There’s a french toast time and place for texture-rich classics like Squirrelly bread, but this specific recipe calls for Soft Wheat—our softest bread. It captures the lighter essence of cinnamon rolls. But if you’re looking for that extra kick of cinnamon flavour, use our soft and fluffy, Organic Cinnamon Raisin bread.

Like other french toast recipes, this is a great way to use up any extra slices you have in your pantry or freezer. Store the heels of your bread in the freezer until you have enough to make this delicious dish.

Somebody pass the maple syrup!

Ingredients
Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast
  • 1 loaf Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery Soft Wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tbsp vegan butter, melted (divided)
Cinnamon Roll Icing Drizzle
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 – 5 tablespoons vegan creamer (we used Earth’s Own Oat Cream Culinary Edition)
  • 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
Instructions
for the Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast
  1. Cut up loaf of Soft Wheat Bread into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Place the granulated sugar, cinnamon and 1 tbsp vegan butter in a large resealable Add the cut up soft wheat bread to the bag. Seal and shake to coat the pieces with cinnamon sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl stir together the brown sugar and melted butter.
  4. Grease the inside of a 5 to 7 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray or additional non-dairy buttery spread. Place half the bread pieces in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour half the melted butter mixture over the top, then add the rest of the bread pieces and the rest of the melted butter.
  5. Put the lid on your slow cooker and cook on high power for about 2 hours. (Check it at one hour, then again after another half hour, just to be safe.) The edges will start to brown, but the top will still be a little gooey looking. Turn off the slow cooker, remove the lid to release the steam, and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
for the Icing Drizzle
  1. Place the powdered sugar in a medium-size bowl.
  2. Add the vegan creamer a tablespoon at a time until you reach the consistency you’d like your icing or drizzle to be.
  3. Add vanilla, mix well and immediately drizzle over each serving of your Slow Cooker Cinnamon Roll French Toast

Tips:

  • The caramelized sugar in this dish will stick to the slow cooker as it cools. To avoid a sticky deep clean we recommend serving the entire recipe from your still-warm slow cooker (or transferring to a serving dish to take to the table) and setting any leftovers aside in a storage container before the slow cooker cools down. Otherwise, you’ll need to soak the hardened sugar (and any stuck-on french toast bits) in hot water to get it clean.
  • For an extra bit of sweetness add a small amount of powdered icing sugar on top.
