a new, easy-to-make, tummy friendly breakfast option
featuring a new dairy free milk option: flax milk!
I am obsessed with sourdough bread. It has such a unique flavor and is a great bread option for those of us with tummy issues. I recently posted on my Instagram about why sourdough is typically easier to digest, I encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already. However, if you have Celiac disease you should stick with a gluten free bread; I have plenty to recommend if you reach out!
I haven’t had french toast in soo long, so I’m really excited about this recipe. It makes 1-2 servings and is best if eaten right away. The recipe is dairy free, refined sugar free, and Low FODMAP (use almond milk instead of flax). It can also be gluten free if you switch out the bread!
- 1/2 cup flax milk (or almond)
- 1 egg
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp monkfruit sweetener
- 2 pieces of sourdough bread (can also sub a gluten free option!)
- Optional toppings: cinnamon, powdered monkfruit, syrup
Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut sourdough pieces in half. Next, warm a greased frying pan on medium heat. Place one piece in the mixture for a few seconds, then flip over. Let soak for a minute. Place soaked piece of bread on pan and flip once golden brown. Repeat last three steps until all pieces are cooked.
Since sourdough is so thick, one piece cut into two halves–as picture above–is one serving. If you’re using a substitute, like gluten free bread, you may want more bread per serving. The mixture should still be enough, but you can always make a little more as needed.
Top with cinnamon, powdered monkfruit and maple syrup! You could also top with jam or fresh fruit. So many options – let me know what you try!
