peanut butter banana french toast…

thank ya, thank ya very much 🙂

Way back when I was first vegan in Memphis, my mom got me a subscription to Vegetarian Times Magazine. We picked up some cookbooks- The Accidental Vegan & Vegan Vittles, which has a recipe for french toast. Mmm Mmm good. I remember making the french toast after finding the nutritional yeast at Wild Oats (yea! Wild Oats!). Of course it was wheat bread but I remember being soo happy with my  breakfast. I had to recreate this memory recently. Having a ‘limited diet’ doesn’t mean I have to have a limited diet!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so Eat it Up!

Buttercup’s French Toast Recipe

1/2 c milk of choice (almond is tasty!)

2 teaspoons nutritional yeast (Red Star or Bob’s Red Mill are most commonly found) this gives the toast it’s ‘egg-y’ flavor

dash cinnamon (add nutmeg & vanilla if desired)

1-2 slices gluten free bread, toasted first

1 very ripe banana (also optional if you really don’t like bananas, but add a bit more milk to cover the bread)

‘butter’ for greasing the pan

nut butter of your choice (peanut, almond, sunflower) for topping off at the end!

*If you like sweeter foods, you may choose to add a spoonful of agave to the liquid mix, or just top the toast off with a little syrup or jelly! The sweetness will also depend on if you are already using a sweetened or vanilla flavored milk.

  • Toast the bread!  *Toasting the bread first is very important for the gluten free bread. I’ve tried it without toasting and it just came out soggy.
  • Blend the milk, nutritional yeast, spices, and banana until smooth.
  • Pour the liquid into a bowl big enough to lie a piece of toast in.
  • Soak each slice of bread in the mixture for at least 2 minutes, making sure each side is coated. You may find you need to use more milk so you can make more toast. Adjust as necessary. Remember, I’m cooking for one!
  • Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat while the bread soaks.
  • Cook the toast in the skillet until brown, flip over to get each side.
  • Top with a spoonful of the nut butter of your choice. If you have any extra banana slices, add those on top too! Enjoy!
