You know when you just can't get a certain food off your mind? My breakfasts normally look like the same rotation of green smoothies, chocolate-green smoothies, and breakfast bowls. But then there are times that I crave meals like French toast, and I sit in my room pondering how to make this my reality.
And then I get in the kitchen and just fucking do it.
So here's my take on vegan French toast. Enjoy.
¾ cup almond milk (or any non-dairy beverage)
2 tbsp brown rice flour or vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder
2 tbsp ground flax (or chia)
2 tbsp orange juice
1.5 tsp Xyla xylitol (or sucanat, coconut sugar)
Hearty dash of cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut oil
5 slices gluten-free bread (I used Food For Life brown rice slices)
Toppings: coconut butter, powdered stevia, cinnamon, maple syrup
- Mix together all ingredients (except bread and oil) and let sit for 5ish minutes (to allow the flax to gelatinize and thicken the mixture).
- Heat pan on medium level, add oil.
- Soak each slice in cinnamon mixture and cook each side until golden brown.
- Top with extra cinnamon, powdered stevia, coconut butter and maple. Serve with a side of oranges and John Mayer.
