The Best Gluten-Free Bread for French Toast

Do you miss French toast for breakfast? Or maybe your frustrated with your bread crumbling and turning to mush? I had given up on making most gluten free recipes that required that bread going into the frying pan. Everything just crumbled or turned to mush until Udi’s came along. I was so excited when they game out with Udi’s gluten free cinnamon raisin bread! The trick to using this bread for French toast is not “soaking” it in the egg wash, rather just lightly dip it in, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon if you like and put in an already hot pan. I have done this many times, and my French toast always comes out great! Always use real maple syrup for the best results.

Need something quicker? Van’s makes gluten free cinnamon French toast sticks for the toaster! They will cure the craving for French toast if you are in a hurry. They are a little thin and I find I have to eat more fruit or sides with them to feel full, but it is a great option for those on the go or for kids.

Looking for a breakfast toast with more fiber? Try Udi’s Gluten Free Millet Chia bread with 5g of fiber per serving; it tastes great, and works for French toast and sandwiches too. I love this bread it reminds me more of the nut and seed bread I loved before I was gluten free. Granted it’s been many years since I went gluten free, and have kinda forgotten what it really tastes like.

    What do you use for French toast now that Udi’s changed their bread formula? It’s so small and thin and just crumbles once it gets wet. I hate it!! I miss the old bread so much!!!

      Unfortunately we have no control over the Udi’s formula since it is just a product we carry but don’t make ourselves. We do have other brands of gluten free bread if you would like to try those instead. Just dip the bread into the mixture very quickly and gently, if you don’t leave it in too long it shouldn’t get soggy and fall apart.
