This FRENCH TOAST WITH ALMOND MILK is a great Dairy-Free French Toast recipe for those with lactose intolerance (or anyone who just prefers the flavor of almond milk). We love starting our mornings with this Crunchy Almond French Toast, and we added a delicious Homemade Strawberry Syrup! Fresh almonds along with the almond milk really adds to the overall flavor. It's unique, bursting with flavor, easy, and made with love.
- 3 cups frozen strawberries
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1½ cups vanilla almond milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or almond extract
- 8 slices brioche bread
- 1 cup finely chopped almonds
- 2 tablespoons unsalted dairy free margarine such as smart balance
Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium saucepan and add ½ cup water. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, stirring and crushing strawberries against the sides of the saucepan while cooking. Allow to simmer until thickened to your liking, around 15 minutes.
While sauce is cooking, whisk together the eggs, milk, and extract in a large baking dish.
Dip each piece of bread fully in the egg mixture, and then press both sides into the chopped almonds, pressing to coat as much as possible.
Set aside until ready to make your french toast.
When ready to begin, heat a griddle over medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon margarine.
Add four slices of bread to the griddle and cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes. Flip to cook the other side until browned.
Transfer to a plate and cook the remaining 4 slices.
Serve topped with the roasted strawberry syrup.
