Tasty Tuesday – French Toast in a Mug

unnamed

I know, you are wondering “why would I make french toast it a mug when I will have a house full of people”, right?  The truth is this is a great way to watch what you eat and still enjoy the yumminess everyone else is enjoying.

My daughter is celiac so we need to be VERY careful about crossing over anything gluten.  This is a great alternative for her to be able to enjoy french toast without the fear of gluten.
