Courses: Main Course, Vegetarian

Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cup 46g / 1.6ozRaw almonds
1 1/3 cups 315mlWater - divided
2 tablespoons 30mlBrown rice syrup = (or maple syrup)
2 teaspoons 10mlUnbleached cane sugar = (or white sugar from sugar beets)
3/4 teaspoon 3.8mlAlmond extract
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlVanilla
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSea salt
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlCinnamon
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGround nutmeg
8   Whole-grain bread = (or other bread of choice)
  Safflower oil - for oiling pan

Recipe Instructions

Begin by blanching the almonds. In a small saucepan, place 2 inches of water, and bring to a boil. Add the almonds and cook for 1 minute to blanch them. Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside for 3 minutes to cool.

Remove the almonds from the water, squeeze each almond between your thumb and forefinger to remove their skins, and set them aside for 5 minutes to dry and cool.

Place the almonds in a blender or food processor and process for 1 to 2 minutes to finely grind them. Add 1/3 cup of the water and the brown rice syrup and process for 1 minute or until smooth. Add the remaining water, sugar, almond extract, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and process the mixture an additional 2 minutes or until very smooth and creamy.

Transfer the mixture to a large casserole dish. Place 4 slices of the bread in the almond mixture, flip them over to coat the other side, and then let the slices of bread soak in the liquid mixture for 2 minutes.

Using a little safflower oil, lightly oil a large non-stick skillet (or griddle), and place it over medium heat. Using a fork, carefully remove the slices of bread from the almond mixture, and place them in the hot skillet. Cook the bread slices for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown, carefully flip the slices over, and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.

While cooking the first batch, repeat the soaking procedure for the remaining 4 slices of bread. Transfer the French toast to a large plate. Lightly oil the skillet again with a little safflower oil and repeat the cooking procedure for the remaining slices of bread.

Serve the French toast with your choice of jams, preserves, syrups, or fresh fruit.
