Good old fashion French toast. Well, then again, if there are no eggs included is this old fashion? Regardless, this French toast tastes just like traditional French toast! What replaces the egg? Flax! When ground flax is added, the batter will thicken. If you are transitioning to a plant based lifestyle and think you will miss out on classic food, I am here to tell you that you will not! Add some fruit and syrup and you are good to go!
Growing up, my mom never used sourdough bread. My mom used whatever bread we had, which was usually sliced white or wheat bread. Sourdough bread was one of the foods I discovered as an adult. Sourdough bread is fermented and, as most of us know, fermented foods are good for us. There are minerals, such as calcium, and it is better to digest than white bread, for example. It is a personal favorite and works so well in this recipe!
I hope you love my take on French Toast. Enjoy it for brunch with friends or breakfast with your family!
- 6 slices of sourdough bread
- 1 cup plant milk
- 1 tsp vanilla powder or extract
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1/8 – ¼ tsp stevia (or 2 tsp maple syrup)
- 1 cup berries, for topping
- 2 tbsp coconut flakes, for topping
- In a small bowl, whisk together the mylk, cinnamon, vanilla, flax and stevia. Set aside for at least 10 minutes. This will make the batter thicker.
- Slice the sourdough bread in half- you will have 12 piece total.
- Heat a drizzle of coconut oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
- Dip the bread in the cinnamon mylk mixture then flip the bread over to make sure both sides are evenly coated.
- When the pan is hot, add the bread slices and cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
- Serve with coconut flakes, maple syrup, and fresh berries.
