Merry Christmas yogis! Made the best brunch for my family this morning and had to share. It was one of those perfect mornings. Yummy tasty holiday-inspired french toast, vegan apple sausage, green juice and coconut chai. Believe it or not, this was all before we opened presents. Now that my boys are teenagers, everything is different. They SLEPT IN until after 10am. Which when I think back to when they were little, it’s sort of hard to fathom.
This recipe comes from the back of the So Delicious coconut milk eggnog carton. So I can’t take much credit for it, but it’s so awesome…it’s worth a post on Christmas day. The prep could not be easier. Blend banana, eggnog, spices and vanilla and pour into a pie plate.
Next dip bread. Just like any other french toast recipe. You can use any kind, whole wheat, sourdough, gluten-free, whatever you like.
Then heat a griddle pan over medium low heat and melt some coconut oil. Things get a little tricky here. The soaked bread will sizzle big time if the heat is too high. So you may need to play with the temperature. The sugar from the eggnog and banana will begin to caramelize. I ended up flipping the toast several times to keep it from sticking too much. So keep an eye on it.
I served it with fresh banana slices, cinnamon sugar and pure Ohio maple syrup. This is no doubt a special occasion treat. But hey it’s Christmas. Live a little. Savor the sweetness. Make this for your family and they will love you even more forever and ever.
Vegan Eggnog French Toast
2 ripe bananas
2 cups So Delicious Eggnog
1 tsp pure vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
8-10 slices of whole wheat, sourdough, or gluten-free bread
Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender until smooth. Pour mixture into a pie plate. Dip bread into mixture, allowing it to soak for a few seconds. Poke the bread with a fork to help it seep in. Heat a griddle pan or large non-stick skillet over medium low heat. Cook until browned on both sides, turning frequently to prevent sticking. Serve with fresh banana slices, cinnamon sugar and pure maple syrup.
