    Wow, this looks SO delicious! And that’s without considering that it’s a healthy, low GI product. I may try to find the ingredients one of these days…breakfast has gotten a little stale lately and would love to add some variety. Yes, it looks very good…can’t wait! Thank you for sharing this with us.

    Yum! I can’t wait to try this! Is the orange concentrate necessary for the recipe? I’m just wondering if I would be able to leave it out and instead put some fresh fruit on top (your picture with the strawberries got me thinking about how tasty strawberries would be on this)!

      The orange concentrate is not necessary. You can use normal orange juice and it will be just as good. Fresh fruits is a great alternative also. Let me know if you have any more questions and i will respond in 24 hrs.

    I love to cook and even more love to eat, love your article on sourdough french toast. I do enjoy good french toast, your looks absolutely mouth watering. I saved your recipe to make my own very soon, maybe tomorrow since its Sunday and I will have lots of time to go out today and buy the ingredients.

    Thank you for sharing

    This sounds delicious but I would love to see an image of the cooked end result!? I do love “normal” french toast, it’s great as a treat for Sunday brunch.

    I’ve never used egg substitute before and have no idea where to obtain it. I live in the UK – any advice?
