Reviews for Almond French Toast Hearts
"The almond butter was a great addition to the french toast. I added a few toasted slivered almonds to the top for an extra crunch!"
"I made these for Valentine's Day lunch & took them in to my husband at work, everyone else was jealous! He can't have almonds, so I just used regular milk, but the heart shape idea was great! I made all the extra crusts & pieces into bread crumbs for use in later recipes."
"Its really amazing, very very tasty!"
"This recipe is so tasty and so easy! We make this recipe often, and served Almond French Toast (without cutting it into heart shapes) for a big Easter brunch. It was a hit! Everyone asked for the recipe."
