Waffle French Toast. (Paleo or Gluten Free/ Vegan Option)

Waffle French Toast. (Paleo or Gluten Free/ Vegan Option)

Lazy sundays to me mean brunch. When I was in college my friends and I would get together and cook big breakfasts together, each person had their specialty. Someone was on scrambled egg , sausage, bacon, pancake, coffee duty, etc. My job was french toast. We would cook, laugh and reminisce about the past weekend. What I would give to go back to those days! Here I have created a wonderful gluten free, or vegan option for Waffle French Toast to relive my glory days! Since multi-allergen free bread that actually tastes good can be difficult to both make and come by- using my waffle recipe was an easy (and deliciously perfect) solution.

Pick first from one of my waffle recipes of choice, I have 3 versions:

A Paleo Recipe

A Paleo /Egg Free Recipe

Basic Gluten Free/Vegan Recipe (for those with nut allergies).

Then- select how you want to make your recipe using either the Classic Recipe or Vegan Banana recipe below:

 

Classic Waffle French Toast

Yield: 8 french toast waffles

Ingredients

  • 8 Waffles
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 2/3 Cup Milk (dairy or nondairy)
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • a pat of Butter (dairy or nondairy)

Instructions

  1. Begin by toasting your waffles slightly. Gluten waffles tend to absorb a lot of moisture, creating a very soggy french toast, so pre-toasting your waffles will help this to not happen).
  2. In a bowl mix together the eggs, milk, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Heat a pat of butter in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  4. Dunk one side of the waffle in the batter and place in saucepan.
  5. Pour some batter on non-battered side and then flip. * Its important that you don't dunk both sides to begin with as the waffles can end up a bit soggy! *

    Hi Brittany, do you recommend making the waffles fresh and making the French toast straight away? Or say, making the waffles the day before I intend to make the French toast? I noticed you mentioned the waffles absorbed a lot of the moisture and I just wanted to know the best approach.

    Now I want breakfast for dinner... YUM!

    The vegan version is not vegan, it contains dairy.

    Wow, this looks amazing! It would be perfect with fresh fruit for a fall weekend brunch.

    I wonder if this will work with Gluten-free bread? We can have Ener-G bread, and I have been wanting an egg-free French Toast recipe. I'm going to try it this weekend, with toasted bread and untoasted bread. Thanks so much!
