Breakfast just got even more fun! Gluten-Free Cinnamon French Toast Bites that are allergy-free, vegan, and perfect for little hands! An easy recipe perfect for a healthy weekend treat! Kid-loved and mom-approved!
The way to my heart? Breakfast. Literally, just serve me breakfast and we can be best friends forever. Just make sure it’s carbs and sweetness; no savory please! One of the “homemade” breakfasts my mom would make my brother and I when I was younger was French Toast. She always felt like pancakes were so easy to burn, but French toast was a bit easier.
I remember pouring syrup on and having my mom cut them up into bitable pieces for me. But I also remember them tasting super “eggy” and having the worst full-feeling and stomachache afterwards. That’s why there shall be no eggs and obviously to no gluten now-a-days! Still, the syrup “soggy bread” classic will always be near and dear, don’t get me wrong!
Of course, knowing me, I finally needed to look up why French toast was called “French” toast. It stated back in the 5th century AD by the Romans and was called “Pan Dulcis”. But then it evolved over time and the modern version is supposedly credited to an innkeeper named Joseph French (read about it here). So, it’s not French at all, it’s Roman and just stale bread dipped in egg and milk, and then fried. I’ve taken it upon myself to make it “ultra” modern and allergy-free-inize it!
I also made it super easy (and healthy) for all you mommas to prepare for the kiddos! Since I’m still floundering on being a “child”, my recipe development can please both. This French toast you cut up before you even make it in the pan! Super easy and cooks up even quicker! For the allergy-free “egg” mixture, we use chickpea flour and a sprinkle of nooch for that classic taste. A hefty dose of cinnamon, pan-fry, and BAM….Breakfast is served! When it’s done, it’s all ready to serve at the table with a “pool” of syrup for dipping! This way, if you don’t want it “soggy”, dipping the individual pieces combats that rather well! Obviously, we all know dippable breakfasts are THE best! What kid doesn’t love finger food that’s dippable, heck, what “adult” doesn’t?
