Finally I got a new breakfast recipe for you guys! As you probably already noticed, I’m not a huge breakfast person. I love vegan pancakes or tofu scramble once in a while, but mostly I’m super happy with my green smoothie or overnight oats with fresh fruits and chia seeds. But last Sunday, we had time for a fancier breakfast, so we made French toast without milk and eggs and it was so yummy!!
Although the traditional recipe calls for eggs, milk or cream, it’s super easy to make vegan French toast. I think it’s actually even easier than making French toast with eggs. You only need three main ingredients: almond milk (or other plant-based milk), one mashed banana, and of course bread. I also used some cinnamon, vanilla extract, and topped it off with agave. It’s also great with maple syrup.
I actually haven’t had French toast in for like eeeever! My grandma always made it for me when I was a little kid and I just loved it. The other week, we talked about old recipes and how you sometimes just kinda forget about some of them although they were pretty good. For example, Flo and I used to make a cheesy casserole with peas for some time (of course vegan), but nobody can remember the exact recipe anymore and we just forgot about it. Isn’t that so weird? We were totally crazy about it and then all of a sudden we got a new favorite recipe, which we made once or twice a week until we found something else.
I’ll stay at my parent’s this weekend, so I can go over to my grandma’s and ask her for her recipe and see if I can make a vegan version of it. I think she kinda made a crunchy French toast with bread crumbs and butter. At least that’s how I remember it.
I’m so excited for the weekend. I haven’t seen my parents in a while and they’re getting a new puppy tomorrow. She’s only nine weeks old and she’s soooo cute. They already got everything ready for her and bought tons of toys and stuff. I hope she won’t miss her little siblings and will adjust quickly. Haha! It kinda feels like adopting a baby. Everyone is just so excited to finally be able to pick her up and take her home!
Well, back to the vegan French toast. All you have to do is cut the bread into slices, mash the banana with a fork, and add the almond milk together with the cinnamon and the vanilla extract. Then dip each slice of bread into the banana almond milk mixture for about 10 to 15 seconds. In a large pan, heat some coconut oil over medium heat and cook each side until golden. For me, this took about 3-4 minutes on each side.
We enjoyed this vegan French toast together with homemade coconut cream, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries and it was sooo good. Plus it was ready in just minutes! Oh, and don’t forget to top it off with some extra cinnamon. I can never get enough of it! And its smell!! Double yum!!
Let me know if you give this French toast without milk and eggs a try! As always, I love hearing from you and see your Vegan Heaven creations on Instagram.
Hope you all have a great weekend. I can’t believe it’s already Thursday!!
