French Toast. Yum.
Let’s combine them, shall we? 🙂
This delightful French Toast Granola recipe was born from my love for homemade almond milk (thanks Ellie’s Best!) and well…breakfast. Ha! As you know if you have made your own almond milk, you are left with the almond pulp AKA almond meal.
We can all agree that almonds are pretty pricey so letting course almond flour go to waste was definitely not an option for me.
You all know I am WAY to frugal to let that happen.
So in my attempt to find a way to re-purpose these leftover almond bits, I came across this recipe from Evergreenkitchen.ca. This granola recipe was fantastic and just what I was looking for.
PSA: Keep reading even if you don’t have almond pulp. You can still make this granola without it! I will explain how in a few paragraphs. 🙂
I omitted the hemp seeds and coconut shreds (even though I really like them!) and used maple syrup and maple extract to bump up the flavor profile. Oh, and I added cinnamon!
Just to make sure I was on point with this French Toast Granola I had a few friends try it. They stated they loved the texture best as it is not too hard, but not soggy or soft.
“Just perfect” was a phrase used. #winning
We often eat this gluten-free granola as a snack or for breakfast. For a snack, we just eat it straight up out of the jar. When the fam enjoys it for breakfast, we pour a whole lot of almond milk in it.
Whether you have homemade almond milk, store-bought, or cow’s milk this granola will taste just as amazing with any milk choice.
You can also use this granola as a yogurt or ice cream topping!
Okay, let’s get you that recipe! Toodles!
