Awesome Cinnamon French Toast!

This french toast recipe is amazing when you use Le Garden Bakery's Gluten-free Italian Bread.  I modified this recipe to make it both gluten and dairy-free.  My family loves it, and with 12g of protein for 2 slices and 7g of fiber it is a great start to any day.  You will need:

1 cup coconut milk, soy or nut milk
1 egg, whites only
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon orange or lemon extract (optional) (Flavorganics)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (Flavorganics)
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 slices of Le Garden gluten-free Italian bread or gf bread of your choice
maple syrup

In a wide bowl, beat the egg white with the milk.  Add honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange or lemon extract, vanilla extract and salt.  Dip each slice of bread in the mixture for a minute.  Grease skillet and heat on medium.  Cook French Toast on both sides until brown.  Dust with cinnamon one last time and top with remaining honey and maple syrup.

I recommend using organic raw honey if it is available near you.
