Cinnamon French Toast
The perfect start to the day if you have a sweet tooth; this vegan version of French toast takes out all the extra calories that you'd usually get with eggs and milk, leaving you with a sweet, healthy, lower-fat alternative. If you really want to double-up on the good stuff, try adding a side serving of fruit, to top up your 5-a-day. Or, if you want to treat yourself, try throwing some pecan nuts on top and drizzling with a bit of extra maple syrup.
- 1-2 Ripe bananas, sliced
- 3/4 cup Unsweetened vanilla non-dairy milk Almond milk recommended
- 1/2 tbsp Ground cinnamon, plus an extra pinch for topping
- A pinch of nutmeg
- 1/2 tbsp Vanilla extract
- 2-3 tbsp Vegan Butter
- 6 Slices Thick bread Toasted
- Maple syrup, for drizzling
Place bananas, vanilla milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a food processor and blend until smooth.
In a medium-size skillet, melt 1 tbsp of vegan butter over medium heat, moving the skillet so that the butter coats the entire base of the pan.
Toast the sliced bread.
Take a slice of toast and dip it into your banana mixture, making sure it's completely covered, and place into the skillet. Do this with as many slices as you can fit into your skillet at the same time.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on both sides, or until your toast is golden brown.
Transfer the toast onto a plate and drizzle with maple syrup and a light sprinkling of cinnamon.
