Easy vegan French toast (Keto)
Easy Vegan French toast
Quick, easy and absolutely delicious!
Ready in 10 minutes with simple methods.
Preparation time 5 minutes
Cooking time 5 minutes
Total time 10 minutes
3 tablespoons cornstarch (the cornstarch helps the mixture flake)
1/2 cup almond milk (you can use oat milk or coconut milk)
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon mashed ripe bananas (adds a custard-like texture)
1 dash of ground turmeric (optional // for color)
2 large pieces of sturdy one-day-old bread (recommended to use sourdough)
2 teaspoons vegan butter (myoko butter with a pinch of salt)
Any Nut butter
Selected fruits (banana slices, fresh berries or compote)
powdered organic sugar
Whipped coconut cream
Mixture: Add the cornstarch to a bowl, then slowly add the dairy-free milk while whisking. Mix well to make sure there are no lumps. Then add maple syrup, vanilla extract, sea salt, cinnamon, mashed ripe bananas (it adds custard texture and a nice sweetness - leave it if you don't like bananas) and turmeric (optional - for color). Whisk again to mix.
Next, heat a large frying pan over a medium heat.
Dip: Meanwhile, add the bread slices to the mixture and marinate on each side for 15-20 seconds. It shouldn't be too soggy, but it should be covered well. Sprinkle each side with a little cinnamon.
Cooking: Add a little vegetable butter to the hot skillet and as many pieces of French toast as you like. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the underside is golden brown. Then flip with a fork or spoon and cook for another 2 minutes, or until both sides are golden, brown, and caramelized. Repeat as needed until the French bread is prepared.
Serving: Serve as is, or (our favorite) with vegan or nut butter, fresh fruit, and maple syrup. You can also sprinkle with organic powdered sugar or add coconut whipped cream for a more decadent touch.
Storage: Best when fresh. Not suitable for freezer. You can prepare the mixture up to two days in advance, although it is best if it is fresh. Enjoy!
