Recipes: Gluten-Free French Toast

The tried-and-true breakfast in bed will always brighten mom’s day. If she’s gluten sensitive, whip up this homemade gluten-free batter and use gluten-free bread to make a delectable French toast! Top it with fresh berries and whipped cream, or topping of Mom’s choice.


  • 8 thick slices of your favorite gluten-free bread
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat a large, heavy skillet on medium heat.
  2. Combine the eggs, coconut milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla in a shallow bowl and whisk until thoroughly blended.
  3. Dip bread slices into the egg mixture. The bread will act as a sponge and soak up the mixture. Let it sit and soak for a minute on each side.
  4. Add vegetable oil to the preheated skillet. Add as many slices of bread that will comfortably fit on the skillet.
  5. As soon as one side begins to get golden brown, carefully flip over and fry the other side. This may take as short as one minute or as long as a couple minutes – just be sure to keep a watchful eye on your French toast so it doesn’t burn.
  6. Transfer to plates and serve immediately with a light dusting of powdered sugar on each slice.
  7. Enjoy this gluten-free French toast plain, with butter and syrup or fruit topping and whipped cream. Whatever mom wants!
