French toast. A breakfast classic. Something a lot of us grew up eating as kids and loving. Weekends at my house growing up often meant either french toast or pancakes. There are many different twists on french toast. This is the first time I have made vegan french toast. It is a coconut banana vegan french toast.
Although I had never made it or tried it, I imagined vegan french toast made with silken tofu. It didn’t interest me that much. Then I came across the idea of making french toast with bananas and coconut milk blended together instead of eggs and milk whisked together. Genius. I wish I had come up with the idea myself.
It’s amazing how good this is. The french toast has a great texture and so much flavour. Coconut milk and banana with vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. I think I need to make a smoothie along those lines.
Whether you are vegan or not, this is a delicious breakfast treat. If you make it for someone who would be turned off by something that is vegan, just call it banana french toast. Delicious coconut banana french toast topped with nutty hemp seeds, and sweet sweet maple syrup.
Sprinkling hemp seeds on top of the french toast gave it a nice nutty flavour.

Coconut Banana Vegan French Toast
Yield: Makes enough batter for 7-8 regular sized bread slices
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk, or other non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
coconut oil for cooking
delicious fresh whole grain bread of choice
Topping: Maple syrup and Shelled Hemp Seeds
Combine the milks, banana, vanilla, and spices together in an upright blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the batter into a rimmed dish to soak the bread slices. Soak 1 or 2 slices of bread at a time depending on the size of the dish.
Preheat a large non-stick frying pan on medium with a little bit of coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, place 2 pieces of bread in the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then flip. You may have to reduce the heat to medium-low. Be careful and watch it so you do not burn the french toast. If the pan is too dry after you flip the bread you can always add a drop more coconut oil.
Make as many slices of bread as you need.
Top with maple syrup, hemp seeds, or even coconut butter.
