Vegan French Toast

If you are looking for an easy breakfast to serve (or be served!) on Mother’s Day tomorrow, you are in luck.  This simple recipe is absolutely delicious.  I like to serve this with a side of pre-made homemade tempeh bacon, or Fakin’Bacon, Lightlife SmartBacon, Gimmelean Soysage or fresh fruit.

I don’t know what we are doing yet for Mother’s Day, but I’m hoping to squeeze in a stop at the nearby cupcake shop to get a vegan cupcake that I didn’t have to bake myself (though there’s nothing wrong with that!)!  Happy Mother’s Day to all you hard-working moms out there!

Your Vegan Neighbor’s French Toast

  • 8-10 slices of bread
  • the basics: soy margarine, pure maple syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit

Mix batter:

  • 1 flax egg (1 “flax egg” = 2 Tbsp ground flax + 3 Tbsp water, whisked well)  
  • 1 cup soymilk or almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp unbleached flour
  • 1 heaping Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional but recommended)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sweetener of choice (I like to use agave nectar or maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Spray a hot griddle with nonstick spray, dip bread completely in batter and cook on griddle until golden brown on both sides. If you go to flip the bread and it is sticking, it probably just needs another minute – don’t rush a good thing!

Serve with soy margarine, real maple syrup & powdered sugar, if desired!

Heavenly French Toast Sticks

You know those days when you don’t care so much about eating healthy?!  Well… save this recipe for one of those mornings!

I concocted this recipe up one day when I was missing those fast-food french toast sticks I ate when I was a kid.  They are soooo yummy and sweet – they are too good to be true!  It’s also a wonderful way to eat some of that older bread you have sitting around!  I don’t think it’s necessary to say it, but my kids absolutely love these!  I served these today with some mock sausage (GimmeLean) to make our breakfast a little bit healthier!

Heavenly French Toast Sticks

Whisk ingredients.  Cut 4 pieces of bread into 4 sticks each (or 3 if you like fatty sticks).  Give each stick a good soaking in the dip & pan fry on med-high heat on a non-stick skillet until browned.  Flip and cook the other side. Sprinkle with powdered sugar (if you dare) & serve with maple syrup as dipping sauce. Relax & enjoy your trip down sugar lane – oops!- i mean memory lane!
