Blackberry Ricotta French Toast

I wouldn’t say I am a health nut by any means. I eat what I want when I want to, for the most part, paying attention to food quality and how it makes me feel. Luckily, I actually enjoy the taste of vegetables, fruit, and healthy grains, but I really miss bread.

Or at least I did until I discovered Alvarado Street Bakery! I have a gluten intolerance, but I cheat a lot, then I feel sick. But once I started eating the sprouted bread from ASB, it was like I discovered life again! I can eat sandwiches that don’t taste like cardboard! And more importantly, I can make french toast again.

I started making this recipe a while back when I was still eating regular bread and I missed it so much. It’s a special treat, Saturday morning kind of breakfast. Enjoy!
