Wanting to do something special for your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Try this French toast made in browned butter! The browned butter creates a caramel flavor that’s absolutely unbeatable. Then, to take the flavor up even more, we added some almond and caramel extract to give sweetness and flavor without added sugar. With all of the amazing flavors, you won’t even notice that it’s made with healthier whole wheat bread instead of it’s refined white flour cousin. Happy Valentine’s Day!
