2
30 minutes

Ingredients

Vegan French toast

  • 4 slices of bread, good quality and gluten-free if necessary
  • 160ml of almond milk, or other plant milk
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 tbsp of buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg, freshly ground
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • coconut oil, for frying

For the filling

  • 4 tbsp of almond butter, shop-bought or homemade
  • 1 punnet of raspberries

To serve

  • coconut sugar
  • coconut yoghurt
  • mixed nuts, chopped

Method

1
First spread all 4 slices of bread with almond butter and squash as many raspberries as you can fit in over 2 pieces of bread, then press them down with a fork. Top with the other slices and gently press down
2
In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk, maple syrup, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and pinch of salt. Place the bread in a shallow dish (with sides) that holds all of the bread. Pour the batter over the bread, then lift or flip it over to make sure both sides are evenly coated
3
Heat a drizzle of coconut oil in a large frying pan (skillet) over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the bread slices and cook for a few minutes each side until golden brown
4
To make it look pretty, cut your toast in half and serve scattered with coconut sugar and fruit and drizzled with coconut yoghurt and some chopped nuts, or just have it as it is
