Vanilla Almond French Toast
- plant based, vegan, gluten free -
This french toast was made from leftover vanilla almond cake. It was adapted from a recipe from Bob’s Red Mill and it is super moist and delicious. The almond taste is not strong at all because the only almond ingredient is almond flour; if you’d like more of an almond flavor use almond extract instead of vanilla extract.
Stevia is a plant based sweetener that is alkaline and calorie free. Look for stevia made for baking that can be substituted for sugar, such as Pyure brand.
