Who doesn't like chocolate for breakfast? Just leave out the cocoa if you don't want chocolate!
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup evaporated cane juice sugar
  • 1 oz. (1/3 cup) unsweetened cocoa powder (natural or Dutch-processed)
  • ⅛ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. table salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 4 large eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 8 slices gluten free bread (stale is fine)
  • ¼ cup dairy-free butter substitute
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, using a whisk, combine the dry ingredients (sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt) and blend well. Cocoa is often lumpy, be sure to whisk until all lumps are gone.
  2. Pour in about half of the almond milk and whisk continuously until the mixture gets a paste-like consistency and has not lumps.
  3. Whisk in remaining milk, the eggs, and the vanilla. Whisk until well blended.
  4. Dip bread slices, one at a time, into mixture until bread is soggy with the milk mixture. Set aside the slices until all have been dipped.
  5. While dipping the bread, heat a griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Before heating coat pan evenly with a non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Carefully arrange bread slices that have been dipped in milk mixture on the hot pan.
  7. Cook approximately 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and lightly crisp.
  8. If the bread is browning too fast, lower the temperature.,
  9. Transfer the French toast to plates, dust with confectioners' sugar, garnish with fresh strawberries (or raspberries, blueberries, or banana) and serve immediately.
Notes
Gluten free bread slices are tiny. Each person will probably eat 3 or 4! Make enough so no one goes hungry and freeze the leftovers. Leftover cooked French toast can be frozen. I put wax paper between each slice so they don't stick together. Pop a slice or two of frozen French toast into the toaster, thaw & reheat on a low setting and ... presto, a quick breakfast or snack!
