Plant-Based Breakfast: Vegan French Toast

So many people have asked me, "What do vegans eat for breakfast!?"

Well, obviously the cholesterol, fat, and calorie laden bacon, sausage and waffles are out.  But despite that, there are less obvious breakfast choices that are delicious - hashbrowns, potatoes, toast, oatmeal, whole grain cereal with plant-based milk, granola, smoothies, fruit, tea or coffee. 

Oh, coffee.  Love coffee.

Just instead of regular cream, I either drink it black, or with a touch of Silk French Vanilla.   And it's awesome.   

I came across a recipes for something I never thought I'd eat again - French Toast! 


And it's amazing. 

If you don't love banana-flavored foods, don't worry because you can't really detect the banana flavor in this batter.  If you love bananas, then cut up another one and put it on top! 

Serve with fresh fruit and pure maple syrup?  Vegan breakfast heaven

Love and Kale,
Ali

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions:
  1. Mash up banana and all other ingredients in a shallow bowl (I ended up using a blender to completely "hide" all banana remnants). 
  2. Dip slices of bread in the banana mixture, covering both sides, and place in a skillet on medium heat.
  3. Cook on both sides for about 2 minutes until golden brown.  Serve with 100% Pure Maple Syrup and your choice of fruit.

Voila - easy vegan french toast!
