How to make this recipe Gluten Free
If you are ALL OVER the idea of french toast, but need it to be gluten free for those sensitive to gluten, no problem at all! Simply use your favorite variety of gluten free bread instead of wheat bread and it will still be delicious.
How to make Healthy French Toast
In a large container, add all the ingredients other than the bread and coconut oil. Use a wire whisk to combine everything thoroughly.
Place the 2 slices of bread in the wet mixture and allow them to soak for a few minutes on each side.
Add the coconut oil to the griddle and heat it up, allowing the oil to melt. Place the soaked bread slices onto the griddle and cook on both sides until golden brown. You could also bake it in the oven if you’d like, but I prefer cooking it on the griddle.
Serve your french toast as desired and enjoy!
