I’ve never known a kid or adult who doesn’t love this healthier twist on French toast! It’s perfect for weekend brunches or a quick after school snack. I like to keep a batch of the batter in the fridge in a container big enough to dip bread slices in, so it’s super easy to whip up a batch of French toast anytime.

Batter:
2 very ripe bananas
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk, unsweetened (plain or vanilla)
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
¾ cup rolled oats*
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
Extras:
8 slices sprouted or regular whole grain bread*
Oil as needed for frying
1. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients for the batter until smooth. At this point, I usually place the mixture directly into a storage container that’s big enough to dip a slice of bread in. That way, any leftover mixture will be ready to go in the fridge.
2. Heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Add a little oil to the pan if needed.
3. If desired, cut the bread into triangular shapes. Dip your bread into the batter and get it nice and gooey on all sides. Add the bread to the skillet when the pan is sufficiently hot, so that it doesn’t stick. Flip it over halfway through. When it is golden brown on both sides, remove from the pan and place on a plate.

4. Serve immediately, drizzled with maple syrup or topped with applesauce.

The batter will keep in an airtight container, refrigerated, for several days. However, the longer the batter is stored, the thicker it will become. If it becomes overly thick, simply thin it with a little non-dairy milk.

 

 

Serves 8

 

*If you can’t eat gluten, you may substitute quinoa flakes or gluten-free oats for the rolled oats and use a gluten-free bread.
