I'm not a big breakfast person. We usually do something simple like oatmeal or yogurt with granola and fruit for the kids. I like to have a green smoothie in the morning (which reminds me..I need to put that recipe up too). My kids were begging me for french toast so... here it is! It can be made with your favorite gluten free bread too! I used some leftover french bread. French toast recipe is from bettyconfidential.com. The yummy simple berry sauce is from vegalicious.org. Gluten-free, vegan, soy-free, nut free.
Flax Seed Apple Butter French Toast with Berry sauce
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
3 tablespoons apple butter
3/4 cup non-dairy milk of choice
Pinch ground nutmeg
Pinch ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon non hydrogenated oil
4 large slices gf bread of choice, about ¾-inch thick ( we used a left over french loaf)
for the berry sauce-
2 cup berries (any kind) I used strawberries and blueberries
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon cane sugar or agave
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon corn starch
To make the french toast:
Combine ground flax seeds, apple butter, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a blender and mix until smooth. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add oil. Dip both sides of the bread into the batter and transfer to the hot pan. Repeat for remaining slices. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
Serve with the fruit compote.
To make the berry sauce:
- Place the mixed berries in a saucepan.
- Add the water, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon.
- Stir well to dissolve the cornstarch.
- Place on a low heat to simmer until the berries soften and the sauce thickens
