If you have slices of bread that got a little stale or you had a party and had leftover bread, this French toast recipe is perfect! I usually like to make this recipe on the weekend since I have a little more time to make extras, so I have them in the freezer ready for any day of the week. I like that it calls for basic ingredients, and that you can enjoy it with all kinds of toppings. In this variation I don't add cinnamon sugar as in the more traditional recipeI. I preferred it with fruit puree and maple syrup or honey. If you would like to make it with the sugarcoating, I recommend mixing sugar with a little cinnamon and sprinkle the French toast on both sides just after cooking. The first thing I like to do before I start cooking this recipe is to crush some fruit, add chia seeds and let them sit while I finish making breakfast. If you have a lot of people for breakfast and want to get it out of the way you can make it the night before. When you finish cooking them, tell me what your favorite toppings were!
¼ cup liquid yogurt/drinkable yogurt
½ cup milk (I used pea milk)
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
Splash of vanilla
Bread. If your bread is super soft just toast it.
Quick chia seeds fruit “spread”:
Smash some fruit, add chia seeds and let it rest while you make the french toasts and brew some coffee. This spread can be made the night before.
Maple syrup, honey, any kind of fruit, fruit spread, butter, nut butters, cottage cheese, sugar and cinnamon.
In a mixing bowl whisk all of the ingredients except for the butter and bread
If your bread is soft, toast it
Warm up a nonstick pan
Lightly grease the pan with some butter
Dip the bread into the liquid mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly, do not submerge for too long, you don’t want the bread super soggy and then break
When removing it from the mixture, let it drip the excess of mixture on top of the bowl
In the warm buttered pan cook the bread slices until getting a golden brown color in both sides
Repeat with the rest of the bread
Serve with your favorite toppings
