It wasn’t me, I swear.
This is weird even for me.
Even I couldn’t have some up with something as strange as eggplant french toast. No, this fabulousness was linked up to an August #strangebutgood by Debbie @ Accidentally Delish. It was shockingly good.
I did make it a little more odd by spicing it pie-style and cooking it in the wafflemaker.* You can also cook it in a skillet like “normal” french toast.
*Note: All things in my house are now cooked in the wafflemaker.
After a good waffling, I topped with with protein syrup and a little cereal for the added crunch. It made for strange (but good) brinner!
Pie-Spiced Eggplant French Toast
- 1 small eggplant, thinly sliced
- 1/4 C egg whites
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
- 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
- 3-4 drops liquid vanilla Stevia
In a shallow bowl, beat together egg whites, spices, and stevia. Mix together. Place eggplant slices in mixture and soak.
Meanwhile, preheat wafflemaker or pan. Make sure you grease it well!
Place eggplant slices in your cooking vehicle or choice and cook until softened and golden brown. If you’re using a wafflemaker, push down on the lid to help flatten and cook the eggplant.
Plate and top with protein syrup (recipe below).
- 1/4 scoop (~8g) vanilla protein powder (I use Growing Naturals)
- 1 T syrup (I use a Stevia-sweetened one)
- 1/8 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
In a small bowl, mix ingredients together. Pour over waffle. Eat.

I am floored that I couldn’t taste any eggplant “funk.”
