Vegan French Toast made with coconut milk and banana. 7 ingredients, quick and easy to make, and tastes so much better than regular French toast!
In a blender or food processor add the banana, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Blend to a smoothie-like consistency. Pour the mixture into a shallow wide bowl that will fit a slice of bread.
Heat the vegan butter in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. The sugars in the fruit make the mixture very sticky, so I highly recommend using a very good non-stick pan such as this one. When the pan is hot and the butter is melted, dip a slice of bread into the batter and coat both sides. Place the bread in a hot pan and fry for a couple of minutes per side until golden brown. Serve hot with maple syrup, vegan butter, fruit, or any toppings of choice.
Tips for the bread: I like using a day-old or slightly stale bread. The is dried out a bit, so it will help hold its shape. I also recommend dipping the bread quickly on both sides and then placing directly into the hot pan. Letting it soak will just make it soggy.
Pan selection: now I'm not gonna lie, the sugars in the fruit make the mixture very sticky, so I highly recommend using a very good non-stick pan such as this one. Even my well-seasoned cast iron pan wasn't ideal, so I'm definitely putting that pan on my kitchen wish list. Regardless of the sticking, this French toast is SO worth the trouble.
