Instructions

Batter Instructions:
Step 1:
In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon and allspice.
Step 2:
Add in maple syrup, vanilla and almond extracts, almond or soymilk, lemon zest and 2 tablespoons oil.
Step 3:
Whisk until smooth. Do not overmix.
Strawberry Cream Cheese Instructions:
Step 1:
In a separate large bowl, combine cream cheese alternative and strawberries.
Step 2:
Add brown rice syrup, cinnamon, sea salt, vanilla extract and lemon juice, and whisk with a fork to combine.
Step 3:
Place sliced strawberries in a bowl.
Step 4:
Slice boule or loaf into large 2-inch- thick slices, and cut into each slice horizontally to form a pocket— but don’t cut all the way through bread.
Step 5:
Preheat griddle or pan to medium-high heat. Grease with additional oil.
Step 6:
Stuff each slice of bread with strawberry cream cheese and a few slices of strawberries.
Step 7:
Coat each bread slice in batter, and then place on griddle or hot pan.
Step 8:
Cook until bottom becomes slightly golden and edges look dry, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden.
Step 9:
Let French toast cool for about 3-5 minutes before cutting. Slice in half with a diagonal cut for best presentation.
