Ingredients

  • 1 Cup fat-free soy milk
  • 1/4 Cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 Cup chickpea flour
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • Cooking spray, for the skillet
  • 8 whole-wheat bread slices

Directions

In a bowl, whisk together the soy milk, maple syrup, chickpea flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves and pour into a shallow dish. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Soak bread slices in the milk mixture and then transfer to the heated skillet.

Cook each side until slightly brown and crisp, about 2 minutes per side, re-spraying skillet between batches or as necessary.

Gingerbread Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Gingerbread Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
