Vegan French Toast – The Perfect Spring Brunch

Spring is coming, and with it comes a world of summer fruits and berries that I have missed so, so much in a morning. When the weather is bright and sunny, Daisy is busy glaring out the window at the birds in our garden and it’s warm enough to finally open every window in the flat and finally let some air in – I want something nicer than just toast for breakfast. Like vegan French toast.

Would you believe I’d never even tried French toast until Liam introduced me to it 6 months into our relationship? How breakfast and brunch took a turn. Since I turned vegan I was determined to make a vegan alternative to satisfy my brunching needs.

My main problem is egg alternatives – you can buy them ready made but not anywhere local for me, so I’ve tried both chia and flax seed batters to no avail. The result is tasty, don’t get me wrong, but tastes more like bread and butter pudding (plus a similar texture).

Despite using banana as an egg alternative for a while now, for some reason it never occurred to me to try it for vegan french toast until recently. Let me tell you, there is no going back.

Banana french toast is perfect topped with even more banana and peanut butter or better yet: juicy, tangy summer fruits, sweet vanilla soy yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. In fact, you can top it with just about any combination of fruits and nut butters that you like.

The banana gives the mix the perfect texture, added sweetness and that subtle banana taste that I like in just about any sweet dish, which makes this the perfect spring breakfast.

Let me know what you top your vegan french toast with!

Instructions
  1. Start by popping all of the batter ingredients into a blender and blending until the mixture is frothy and light. You can do this in a bowl by mashing the banana first and whisking in the rest of the ingredients, but the blender is simply faster!
  2. If you're using a non-stick griddle, heat it up. I have to use a frying pan and find a small amount of coconut oil works well to stop any of the mixture sticking. You'll want this on a low heat so as not to burn.
  3. Dip each piece of bread until both sides are covered in the batter, then add to the hot pan.
  4. Allow to cook for a few minutes on each side - my hob means using a very low heat for a longer period to but you can cook faster on gas/ceramic hobs.
  5. Top with whatever fruits/nut butters you'd like and you're ready to eat!

    1. Make some! Oh my goodness if I could eat it for every meal I totally would, it’s basically all of my favourite things on a plate.

    1. I hope you enjoy! I do find the cooking takes a bit longer than ordinary French Toast because the batter doesn’t cook the same way an egg batter would, but it’s sooo much tastier and it’s pretty hard to go wrong!
