This golden french toast is so nice to wake up to! It’s slightly nutty with warm spice undertones and then the maple syrup takes it over the top. It’s absolutely delicious and pretty much addicting…my husband ate six pieces without batting an eye. I love to serve this with non-dairy butter, fresh fruit and maple syrup as shown in my photos, but get creative and top this wonderful french toast with nut butter and bananas, chocolate spread, jam…whatever strikes your mood for delicious! Enjoy!
1 vanilla bean, scraped
2 cups non–dairy milk
1/3 vanilla almond butter (I like this brand)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp egg replacer or corn starch
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
pinch of sea salt
For the batter, in a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
rustic fresh bread or your favorite whole grain bread, sliced in 1–inch thick slices
To prepare the French toast, place the sliced bread into the batter and soak for about 1 minute. On a flat pan, flat grill or large fry pan, add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter and melt. Once melted, put slices of the soaked bread onto the grill or pan. Grill on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, flip the bread and cook until the other side is lightly golden. Enjoy!
