Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar pure cane or coconut
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 slices bread sourdough, French bread or bread of choice
  • coconut oil or other neutral oil, for greasing
  • maple syrup pure; for serving
  • powdered sugar for serving; organic


  1. Preheat griddle according to manufacturer’s instructions. If using stovetop skillet, set aside and heat over medium to medium -high when ready to dip bread.
  2. In a shallow, flat bottom dish, combine flour and orange juice using a whisk or fork. Add sugar and cinnamon, blend again. It’s ok if there are a few little lumps of flour. Let mixture sit for about five minutes.
  3. Grease lightly griddle/skillet with oil. Give your flour mixture a quick stir. Dip both sides of bread in mixture, place on griddle/skillet and cook about 2 – 2 ½. Flip and cook the other side the same, 2 – 2 ½ minutes. This first flip may not look to appealing but be patient. Once the first flip is complete, flip once more to finish up the other side, cooking for about 1 minute.
  4. Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and drizzle of pure maple syrup. Pairs well with fresh orange slices.
  5. A quick cleaning or scraping in between each batch to remove any batter that sticks to the griddle can result in a prettier French toast!
