Crunchy Almond French Toast Recipe

I love almonds. They have such a specific taste without being overwhelming. The fresh, chopped almonds in this recipe add so much texture and just a little bit of crunch.

But the real, sweet almond flavor that makes this dairy-free french toast so tasty actually comes from the almond milk. So yes, you could make this recipe with cow’s milk instead, but trust me, you’ll be missing out! We made this French Toast with Almond Milk because it just tastes better this way.

If you like almonds, you’re going to love this almond french toast recipe, and you’ll be making it time and time again.

Homemade Strawberry Syrup Recipe

Besides the almonds and almond milk, there’s another star ingredient in this french toast recipe. It’s the Homemade Strawberry Syrup! This syrup adds a sweet, fruity flavor to the french toast. It just brings it to a whole new level, especially if you add a few fresh strawberries on top. It’s a MUCH better combination than traditional maple syrup for this french toast with almond milk.

This Homemade Strawberry Syrup Recipe is easy to make too! You just need strawberries and sugar to make it, and you can heat it up in a sauce pan. It turns out to be a nice, thick syrup instead of the thin, watery syrups you find in stores or at restaurants (although you can make it as thick or thin as you like). And this strawberry syrup goes great with other french toast and pancake recipes too!

French Toast with Almond Milk and Roasted Strawberry Syrup…just talking about it is making me drool!

Dairy-Free French Toast Recipe

This french toast is dairy-free by taste rather than necessity. I made the french toast with almond milk to add that special almond flavor, but I’ve also used margarine rather than real butter. You can use any type of dairy-free butter you prefer. This dairy-free french toast recipe is so good, you definitely won’t be missing anything.

This french toast recipe does contain eggs, so it is not vegan. This recipe is perfect if you, your family, or a friend is lactose intolerant. However, if you’d like to venture into vegan territory, you can try using an egg replacement (though I can’t speak to how the recipe holds up without the eggs). I’d love to hear from you if you make this vegan.
