Super Delicious Vegan French Toast

August 22, 2013

Vegan French Toast copyYesterday after yoga, I was challenged to create a healthier non-dairy version of french toast that would be worth the effort. So I went vegan and whipped out this quick and easy recipe from my arsenal.  Judging by the fact that all of it was gone by the end of brunch and we were left scraping our plates, I think I succeeded. The secret ingredient that was the substitute for eggs? Bananas! That’s right, move over egg replacer, bananas can do just as well for vegan french toast, and add natural sweetness that doesn’t necessarily require you to use any additional syrup or agave. I used Ezekiel bread so that I could actually eat some, (my body literally goes cray-cray when I eat any other kind of bread), and opted for the cinnamon raisin version to add additional flavor– it was delicious!  To fry the french toast I used coconut oil, which is the healthiest oil to cook with because it doesn’t go rancid as easily as other oils. and Below is the quick and easy recipe. Remember this one, and keep some bananas handy the next time someone challenges you to a vegan brunch-off! -XoXo Raw Girl 

Vegan Banana French Toast

Ingredients

Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread 

3 ripe bananas

3/4 cup organic coconut milk

1/4 cup organic coconut cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

coconut oil 

Blend the bananas, coconut milk, coconut cream, and vanilla. Add cinnamon if you opted to use regular bread. Prepare french toast as usual dipping each piece of bread into the batter. Use coconut oil to fry to make it slightly healthier. Make as much as you want, then serve plain or use agave or grade B syrup if you need additional sweetener.
