Hi. How’s your day going? It’s pretty rainy here. I like the rain. So I’ve got that going for me. Also, no one invaded my personal space on the F this morning, so that was a refreshing change. Oh and I got lucky enough to snap a blurry photo of Harrison and Sebastian bro-ing out this morning before they began to bite at each others’ faces.
My day is going pretty well. The only thing that could make it better is if I had some more of this french toast in front of me.
My husband and I had it for dinner last night. Immediately afterwards, my team won their game in a shootout.
Coincidence, or lucky french toast?
I guess the only way to find out is to eat it before every remaining game of the season, right?
I’m going to need bigger pants.
Maple Peanut Butter French Toast
Recipe adapted from Vegetarian.About.com
Makes 3-4 servings
- 6 slices of vegan cinnamon raisin bread
- 2 large or 3 small bananas, sliced
- 1 tablespoon vegan brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used vanilla soy milk)
- 5 tablespoons natural peanut butter
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
I feel that the most important ingredient in this recipe is the bread. The cinnamon and raisins compliment the peanut butter in a way that I can only describe as freaking amazing.
I used Ezekial 4:9 Cinnamon Raisin Bread.
If you don’t have cinnamon raisin bread, go ahead and add in a teaspoon of cinnamon (or more) to the batter.
To make the batter, place the bananas, brown sugar, vanilla and milk into a food processor and blend.
Melt some Earth Balance, non-stick spray or whatever you love to use in a skillet over medium heat. Dip both sides of a slice of bread into the batter and place in your skillet. I cooked two slices at a time for 3-4 minutes on each side. If your french toast is browning too quickly, reduce the heat.
While your last slices are on the stove, stir together 5 tablespoons of peanut butter with 4 tablespoons of maple syrup.
Stack your french toast on a plate, smearing the maple peanut butter between each of the slices. Take the last tablespoon of syrup and pour it over the top.
Adjust your pants accordingly.
