4-6 slices gluten free bread
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 apples peeled and sliced
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 c Gluten Free Flour
1 tbsp Olive oil ( Coconut Oil Works too)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp water
2 tbsp Sugar
Preheat the oven to 275°F.
Line a sheet pan with foil and grease it.
Most gluten-free bread I’ve found comes frozen, so what I do is just thaw each piece in the toaster on the lowest setting. They may get a little toasted, which is fine and helps them keep their shape while transferring to the skillet. Then I dip each piece in the egg one piece at a time as I cook them so they don’t get too soggy.
In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk to combine. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture. On medium heat, spray or oil a skillet.
Cook each piece until brown on each side. Don’t worry if it’s not cooked all the way through. You’re going to put them in the oven to keep them warm while you cook the apples, and the toast will cook the rest of the way then.
Place each piece of browned toast on a sheet pan and place it in the oven.
Tip: You can skip the skillet step and put the french toast straight into the oven to cook. Just increase the temperature to 400°F, place on the bottom rack, and cook for 6-7 minutes, then flip to the other side. Cook for another 7–10 minutes. French toast will be a bit crunchy around the edges.
For Crumb Topping
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl or in a food processor. Add oil, and if using a bowl, you’ll need a fork, and just mix until it begins to look like coarse crumbs, then mix in the water.
In a Food processor, add the oil and water and pulse a few times until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Place on a baking sheet (line with foil or parchment for easy clean-up) and bake for 5 to 10 minutes.
In a small sauce pan, cook apples on medium-high heat for 5–10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until tender. The remaining liquid will have a syrupy consistency.
Take the French toast out of the oven and begin to plate.
Top the french toast with the apples.
