Berry French Toast

Continuing on my quest for yummy gluten free, vegan dishes for my favourite meal of the day.... breakfast/brunch! I really don't need to say much about my Berry French Toast, I'm going to let it do it's own talking. Enjoy :)

(serves 2)
  • 4 slices of gluten free bread
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla soy or almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons gluten free vanilla extract
  • maple syrup (to serve)
  • 2 handfuls fresh berries (to serve) - I like raspberries or blueberries for breakfast/brunch
  • tiny bit of vegan spread, I used Earth Balance

  1. Add the bananas, milk, almond butter, cinnamon, & vanilla extract together in a food processor, & pulse until fully combined. If the batter is too thick, you can add more milk. 
  2. Pour the batter into a large dish & soak the slices of gluten free bread.
  3. Heat a large non stick skillet, & add the vegan spread.
  4. When the spread has melted, carefully (gluten free bread breaks up very easily) place the soaked bread in the skillet to cook.
  5. When the bottom of the bread has turned a dark golden brown (not burnt, but the darker the bread is the less likely it will fall apart), flip it using a spatula.
  6. Cook the 2nd side until just turning golden.
  7. Plate up the french toast, drizzle with maple syrup, sprinkle with berries and serve warm. YUM :)
