This was a huge help! Thank you to whomever posted this. It's a very good GF LF rendition of a familiar comfort-food classic.

I'm a new dad for a little one who seems to have inherited my dietary constraints (gluten, lactose, acidic foods, onions). I'm also an in-kitchen husband to a type-1 diabetic woman.

I had some week-old GF bread that worked wonderfully with this French Toast recipe. Momma loved it, and I'm hoping that baby will enjoy it too (in a few hours, via mom's breastmilk).

My only suggestion for improvement of this recipe would be to reduce the amount of liquid. It seemed a little runny to me. Granted, I used rice milk, which is less viscous than soy milk or other cows-milk substitutes. But I had to add an extra egg to make it less runny.

Also, just for my own preferences, I added some ground coriander seeds (1/4 tsp, crushed on my chopping block). It adds a certain sweetness (reminiscent of 1970s era Fruit Loops by my reckoning), without adding any sugar, fructose, glucose, etc.

Anyway, I'm so glad this recipe was posted here, waiting for me to find it during a Sunday morning google!

Oh my gosh!!! This recipe was amazing and made the house smell soooo good. It took me back to my childhood days when I always ordered french toast - it was my fav. Haven't eaten ft since I went GF. Thank you for this posting. Happiness is guarenteed. :)

This is SOOOO good! We've just started a GFCF diet, and I couldn't stand the brown rice bread, so I used it in this and it was amazing, perhaps better then 'regular' french toast! I did add some extra OJ, but had plenty of liquid - I think i got a total of 6 pieces. Be careful though, as if you leave your bread in the liquid too long it will dissolve/break apart! I can't wait to make a big batch of this for the freezer!

The french toast was really good. I doubled the almond milk, but it was barely enough liquid for the 4 slices of bread (soaked 1 minute per side). I used cooking spray for the pan, and did need to turn it down to medium low, as it was getting dark pretty fast. It is great to know that french toast can be made without dairy!
