Recipe by Chad Sarno

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup almond, cashew or peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened soy or other plant-based milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • One loaf of your favorite whole grain bread, or 8 slices
  • Spray oil to coat the pan
  • Fresh berries or other fruits to serve, Vanilla Cream (optional)

Directions

  1. For batter: blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour the batter into a shallow casserole dish or bowl. Set aside.
  2. Slice the loaf of bread into eight thick slices. Dip the bread into the batter, making sure the batter coats the full slice.
  3. Place a flat pan or skillet on medium heat. Spray the pan lightly with high heat cooking oil. Use a ceramic non-stick pan if you prefer to omit the oil.
  4. Gently place the slices of battered bread into the pan, 2-4 at a time depending on the size of your cooking surface.
  5. Allow to cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Gently flip and cook the other side until lightly golden (approximately another 2-3 minutes). Remove and place on serving plates.
  6. For each plate serve 1 or 2 slices of French Toast, a mountain of berries or other fresh fruit and drizzle with maple syrup and/or Vanilla Cream (optional).

Tips

  • For a more decadent version, try topping your French Toast with your favorite plant-based butter instead of plain maple syrup or Vanilla Cream and try a rustic French bread, sourdough, or baguette in place of the whole grain bread.
  • To pack this dish with extra protein, try using seeded whole grain bread, top your French Toast with toasted nuts or seeds, or serve with a side of Tofu Scramble.
