Equipment

  • shallow casserole dish or pie plate
  • Whisk
  • flat pancake turner
  • square griddle

Ingredients
  

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 8 slices gluten-free bread For this recipe I like Canyon Bakehouse Hawaiian Sweet Bread
  • butter or oil to grease skillet

Instructions
 

  • Heat griddle to medium-high heat. Assemble ingredients.
  • Beat eggs in the shallow casserole dish. Add almond milk and whisk together. Add vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and whisk. It is OK if some cinnamon/nutmeg floats on top of the batter.
  • Lightly grease heated griddle. Dip slice of bread in egg/milk batter, fully covering to make sure both sides are covered. (Do not leave bread in batter too long or your French toast may be mushy.) Place bread on griddle and repeat with 3 more slices. Cook about 3 minutes, until the bottom is grilled and turn. Continue cooking about 2 minutes until the bottom is grilled and remove to platter. Continue this step with the remaining 4 slices of bread.
  • Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve with warmed maple syrup, berries, or jam. Enjoy!

Notes

I have made many batches of gluten-free French toast and I have found that the Canyon brand holds up to the egg/milk mixture the best, without turning into mush like other brands do when they become wet.  I decided to use the Canyon Bakehouse Gluten-free Hawaiian Sweet Bread for this recipe and the taste was amazing.  I am able to find this in my local grocery store, but it is also available online.
