French Toast [gluten-Free, Lactose & Casein Free]

French Toast [gluten-Free, Lactose & Casein Free] created by Whats Cooking

A delicious french toast recipe designed for use with gluten-free breads. It is lactose and casein free if you use ghee, or completely dairy-free if you use a dairy-free margarine (such as "Becel Vegan"). Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit. I made this with Food For Life's Brown Rice Bread but you can use it with any store-bought or homemade GF bread. Bon appetit!

    I made this for my mom to try and she said it was ok. Probably would have tasted better if the bread was thicker. I was going to make myself some but by the time I finished the first two slices the butter was gross and the pan started burning so I didn’t get to make mine.

    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. <br/><br/>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. <br/><br/>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).<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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 recipe didn't work with egg-replacer.

    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!
