• 8 slices white or wheat bread
  • 4 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg (or 2 medium eggs)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Maple syrup for serving (optional)


  1. Trim the crusts off the bread. With a rolling pin, roll each slice of bread until flattened.
  2. Spread each slice of bread with a layer of Nutella (about 1/2 tablespoon per slice), and tightly roll up the bread slices.
  3. In a small shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, sugar and vanilla. Set aside.
  4. In a separate small shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  5. In a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Dip each Nutella French Toast roll-up in the milk and egg mixture. Place the roll-ups in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, turning them as needed until they are golden brown and slightly crisp on all sides. Repeat until all the roll-ups are sauteed.
  6. Immediately after removing the roll-ups from the sauté pan, roll them through the cinnamon-sugar mixture until all sides are coated. Serve them warm with some maple syrup on the side.
