Easy GF Cinnamon French Toast for Mothers Day

It's Tasty Tuesday again!
This is a recipe for those of you who want to do something special for mom but need a very basic recipe, as cooking may not be your strong suit.
These French toast are delicious, so easy, and not overly laden with refined sugar. 
The egg dip is easily made a day in advance, so you can have a stress free morning and whip up something really good for the mom in your life. 

(Makes 2 servings)
2 eggs
6 slices toasted gluten-free bread, choose a bread that is lighter, whole grain, not heavy and dense. I used Cherie and or Quinoa bread from Cannelle Boulangerie. 
2 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Plain Almond milk of choice
1/2 tsp Vanilla bean paste
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2-1 tsp Cunnamon ground
2-3 Tbsp Butter or margarine 

-In a bowl, crack eggs and beat. 
-Add Vanilla bean paste, vanilla extract, almond milk, and beat.
-Add cinnamon and beat, keep aside until ready to use. Can be refrigerated overnight, if not being used right away. 
-Lightly toast slices of bread, this is important with gluten free bread as it gives a better texture and doesn't fall apart once dipped. 
-In a medium sized pan heat 1tbsp butter or margarine of choice on medium heat, until sizzling. For every batch you cook of French toast, you will need to add another Tbsp of butter or margarine. 
-Dip each slice of bread until thoroughly coated and a bit of egg mix drips off; about 30 seconds. You do not want overly soggy bread that becomes broken mush. 
-Cook 2-3 slices that have been dipped, on each side until a beautiful golden brown. This takes about 2-3 minutes on each side. If they come out too dark, lower your heat.
-Serve immediately with REAL maple syrup and a side of fresh fruit. I like to add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon to mine but this is optional.

As always, pictures below are here to guide you. I know you'll love this and so will mom!
I tried this recipe twice with two different almond milks and definitely prefer Earth's Own best. Choose what you prefer just make sure it's unsweetened & plain.
Vanilla bean paste with the vanilla and cinnamon make this dish extra special.
This bread is whole grain but is much lighter in texture, do not go with a brick heavy gluten-free bread. It's not the same.
I love the dipping part! 
I tested this new vegan gf margarine, still prefer my usual butter for this recipe.
A nice golden brown is exactly what you want and looks like this:
Make the effort to get real maple syrup, this recipe and your mom deserve it!
I buy it as Costco and when it runs out, I buy cans and refill the clean container.
Don't worry about the flecks in your mix, it's the pods from the vanilla and the cinnamon. Those are flavour town fun for your taste buds.
Make it pretty for mom, it will make her feel really good. 
Happy Mother's Day to you and yours, and give her an extra big hug. Leave questions and comments down below. 
God bless!
