Known as Mochi Toasty in our house – this gluten free french toast is the best!
A chewy, gluten free french toast you can make in just 20 minutes! So easy, soooo good!
I’ve chosen to eat gluten-free for the greater part of 15 years. I just feel better when I do. It’s not the taste of glutenous foods that I miss, it’s the chewy texture!
If you miss this too, you’ll love this alternative to french toast. Plus, it’s super easy to make!
Mochi is a Japanese food – made from pounded rice. Rice is naturally “yin” in nature, and the active pounding to make this seeming flat brick of rice adds the “yang” component, making it more balanced in nature.
One woman told me that because of these natural medicine characteristics she improved her milk quantity greatly while breast feeding! More wellness insights include in recipe…

Body-type and Wellness Insights
I have yet to find a person who doesn’t just love this treat.
It’s a quick, simple dessert that even little kids can help with (brushing with the basting brush is a blast for little ones)!
While I put this recipe in this cookbook, please understand that this is a treat, not a staple item.
Earth-types beware, you will love this! It is so packed full of carbs your body is drawn to this like an electro-magnet. Especially if weight is an issue, I would make this a rare treat, perhaps once every couple of months.
Fire-types, you will love this too! If you are rather physically active you may be fine with enjoyng this more often. What I like about this treat is that it is free from the common allergens (like wheat) and other “junk products’ that many treats have like poor quality oils. This means, when I’m working out hard, this is a “clean treat” and even works as a good carb-load the day before a hard mountain-bike ride or a long seminar day.
Air-types can really benefit from the Yin nature of this food. Although, again, this is a treat. When I feel that I need the nutritive, grounding nature of Yin foods, I opt for root vegetables and squashes first.
Water-types, see the section for your second most dominant type.
