Sometimes we just need to take a moment and treat ourselves. There's something about a decadent stack of over the top pancakes or waffles that instantly makes you take pause and just enjoy the moment. Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow French Toast is sure to become a new tradition in your life.
It's no secret I love creating every variation on s'mores. Part of that is the combination of melty molten chocolate and sticky creamy marshmallows. It just makes me happy every time. This fully loaded breakfast treat gives a nod to s'more with a personality all its own.
Part of treating ourselves includes taking it easy. Gluten Free Chocolate Marshmallow French Toast might look like you spent all morning in the kitchen when in reality it comes together easily with a few pantry staples.
Marshmallow fluff is just one of those fun ingredients that makes you want to either dip everything in the jar or spread it on everything. It's a fun topper or dipper for fruit like bananas and apples and equally perfect for smearing a thick layer onto toast or a sandwich.
Dairy Free chocolate hazelnut spread is another ultimate topper and dipper. Sometimes the only dipping required is a spoon! These two easy pantry staples help bring this French toast together easily and quickly.
The star of any French toast however always starts with the bread. Because the marshmallow fluff and hazelnut spread get sandwiched between the bread you want something that will hold up. You need just the right texture to absorb the custard while achieving that crispy golden exterior and soft tender interior.
I love using Canyon Bakehouse. Not only are they Gluten Free and Dairy Free, they're also made with 100% whole grains and taste incredible.
