French Toast Gluten Free

This sandwich loaf I made the other day was so popular that I need to make more just to be able to make this dinner.

Yes, around our house sometimes breakfast is for dinner. This recipe was so easy and so simple.

French Toast Gluten Free

It’s one of the recipes  I’m making sure my daughters have carefully tucked away in their recipe books.

French Toast with Caramelized Pineapple

French Toast with Caramelized Pineapple

Each of them is gathering the recipes they need as they begin their journey out of our house.  We know that when they go off to college they could eat in the dorm. As gluten free students we’re hoping to find them somewhere with a kitchen so that they can keep themselves safe without depending on the kindness of strangers.

I made this recipe up with Katie last night. She had a blast playing with the mixing the eggs, almond milk and spices, sliding the bread into the pan, waiting for it to soak up that rich mixture and souffle on the griddle.
We ate the entire loaf of bread between the four us. It didn’t hurt that we had the caramelized pineapple on top.

  5. Flip and let sit for 5 more minutes.
  6. Place each piece of bread on a well greased griddle.

    You mention egg in the commentary but it doesn’t show up in the ingredients. I was hopeful at first glance because I can’t have egg.

      Jeri,
      I am so sorry, I had somehow not put the eggs into the recipe plug in before publishing. This french toast was made with eggs.
      To make a gluten-free, egg free French toast, you could substitute pixie dust with a bit of coconut oil. I’d use 1 teaspoon packed pixie dust with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per egg. The color will be different but the toast will be lovely.
