Other than gluten free pancakes, gluten free french toast is a weekend staple in our house. I’ve loved French toast ever since I was a child. It’s one of the first breakfast items I learned to cook.
Back when my mom made french toast she simply used egg. Aimee is the one who introduced me to adding vanilla and cinnamon… which takes this gluten free French toast experience to a whole new level.
Choosing Gluten Free Bread
Gluten free bread is a key factor when trying to make the best gluten free french toast. I personally enjoy Canyon Bakehouse bread. Their country white bread is always a good choice. I think as long as you stay away from a bread that is nutty or has seeds, you should be clear to choose your favorite gluten free bread.
The good news when it comes to gluten free bread is the density. Gluten free bread tends to be thicker and heartier. You won’t have to worry about it being too soggy or floppy like you may have to with traditional bread.
Give it a try!
Try this simple gluten free french toast recipe and let me know what you think. I love cinnamon, so we go with a full teaspoon but you can always dial it back a little. Let’s make breakfast great again!
