I hadn’t made french toast in a while so one day I decided to whip some up this plant-based, vegan, version using flax eggs and non dairy yogurt. I was pleasantly surprised with how well it turned out. I decided to top them with a little left over cranberry sauce.
Yogurt French Toast
Makes 4-5 servings, 10 pieces of french toast
10 slices bread (used Food For Life Sprouted Ezekiel Bread)
4 flax eggs (4 TBSP flax-seed mixed with 12 TBSP warm water)
1- 6 oz container yogurt (used So Delicious Coconut Milk Plain Yogurt)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
In a medium bowl mix together ground flax-seed and warm water. Let sit for 10 minutes to thicken into a gel. When gel has thickened stir in yogurt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Spray with coconut oil, or non-stick spray. Dip slices of bread into the mixture, making sure to remove excess, and place on the hot griddle. Cook until golden brown and flip, bread will release itself from the pan when it is ready don’t try to flip too soon. If your french toast is getting too dark turn down the heat. You don’t want to have the heat too low though or you won’t get that nice coating and you risk it getting “soggy”. Serve right away with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
