What is better than Breakfast for Dinner?
GLUTEN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | TOTAL TIME: ABOUT 10 MIN
Who doesn't love breakfast for dinner? Read on for an absolutely delicious gluten-free, dairy-free French Toast! When trying to find a good and safe recipe, I usually look for a recipe with the least amount of ingredients. This just makes me feel better about not getting sick. Sometimes my celiac sneaks up on me and I don't even know what from!
I found this quick and easy recipe created by Linnie from VeggieBalance! VeggieBalance's blog is all about easy, simple, and natural ingredients. With an environmental approach to cooking, they strive to use as little meat and dairy products as possible. They strongly believe in a healthy lifestyle, as quoted from their blog, "remember we are all on our own individual journey in this world and the fact that you are here means you are aware and making changes and that should NEVER be shamed." I stand by this completely!
Now let's get on with the recipe!
2 eggs (can use egg replacer, may not cook as well)
1/2 cup dairy-free milk (I use original almond milk)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs maple syrup
6 slices of gluten-free sandwich bread
1 tbs of dairy-free butter (I use vegan butter)
You will need a large enough bowl that will fit a slice of bread. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.
Heat large skillet over medium heat. Add the butter to the skillet, make sure you swirl it around to coat the entire pan.
Next, dunk the pieces of bread into the mixture, flip to make sure both sides of the bread have been dunked. Do not soak bread into the mixture for too long as it may start to break apart and create quite a mess!
Place coated bread pieces on the skillet for 2 minutes on each side. Make sure the heat isn't too high or the bread will burn.
Add any garnishes such as fruit, sugar, butter & syrup!
Serve & Enjoy :)
This recipe was super quick and easy to make. I pre-sliced all of my strawberries to put on top! Other garnishes that would make for a great french toast may include blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas, maybe even peanut butter. All specific ingredients & links are listed as promised!
