Vegan Cinnamon Apple French Toast
A chilly morning calls for french toast. Topping it with cinnamon green apple gives it a tart sweetness that amps up this recipe in the delish department.
It’s important to not soak the bread too long-it will fall apart. 15-30 seconds is just fine. Don’t heat your pan too high. You want to let the bread get a nice crispy edge, but not burn. Enjoy.
2 tablespoons vegan butter or coconut oil (any oil will do if you don’t have either of these, but vegan butter tastes best!)
1 15 oz can coconut milk
1 cup vanilla almond milk
¼ cup maple syrup (optional, but recommended)
1 teaspoon vanilla
6-8 pieces of thickly cut sourdough bread
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 medium apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
In a blender, add coconut milk, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt.
Blend well for about 15 seconds.
Put the mixture in a 9″ x 9″ baking dish or wide mixing bowl.
Place 1-2 thick slices of bread in the container and allow to soak for about 30 seconds.
Meanwhile, begin to heat a wide non-stick skillet (or cast-iron skillet) over medium heat and add the vegan butter.
When the “butter” is melted, add 2 pieces of the soaked sourdough to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Flip the bread and cook until the other side is golden brown and a little crispy.
Remove from the heat and serve immediately with the cinnamon apples, maple syrup, and a little more vegan butter.
