For those of you that don’t know, I’m going to be headed back into school for my final semester of my undergraduate degree starting Monday! One of my favorite things about the school year is that during the weekend I usually have time to myself to cook a real breakfast! During the week I usually just have my shake for breakfast – which I LOVE – but sometimes it’s nice to have a little sit down meal!
During my new love affair with Pinterest I have noticed that there is a shortage of SIMPLE vegan breakfast recipes! Now I personally LOVE a good breakfast recipe, no matter how complex, BUT have something simple that I can whip up even on busy days sounds like a winner to me!
After thinking about it for a little while I decided that I was going to use the best flavor combination in the world – chocolate & peanut butter – and combine it with one of my childhood favorites, french toast! This recipe is really simple to make, and clean up is a breeze!
I’m hoping that this recipe shows you how simple a rich, delicious and whole food breakfast can been, even if you follow a Vegan diet!
- 6 Pieces of Whole Wheat Bread
- 1 Cup Non-Dairy Milk
- 1 Banana
- ¼ Cup Peanut Butter
- ¼ Cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- Place the 6 pieces of bread in the oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes, flipping half way through.
- While the bread is in the oven, place the remaining ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth,
- Pour the "batter" into a shallow dish.
- Take the bread out of the oven
- Dip the 6 pieces of dried bread into the batter, then place them onto a skillet at 375 degrees.
- Heat each side of the French Toast for 3-5 minutes, flipping when cooked through.
- Serve with a side of maple syrup and enjoy!
Add your favorite toppings to enhance the experience, try dairy free chocolate chips, powdered sugar, or even strawberries!
While it is a higher calorie french toast, it's fairly high in protein and good carbs, so you can expect to feel full if you pair these with some fresh fruit!
Feel free to cook extra and freeze a few pieces of french toast to heat up later! You could also cut the french toast into strips and make healthy frozen french toast stix!
I want to hear from you!
