Steps

Step 1: Preparing the French Toast Batter

• 1 vanilla bean, scraped
• 2 cups non–dairy milk
• 1/3 cup cashew butter
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 2 tbsp egg replacer or corn starch
• 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
• pinch of sea salt

Method

For the batter, in a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2: Preparing & Serving the French Toast

• rustic fresh bread or your favorite whole grain bread, sliced in 1–inch thick slices
• non-dairy butter
• fresh berries
• fresh peaches
• Bourbon-Spiced Maple Syrup (or regular)
• drizzle of Cashew Vanilla Crème (optional)

Method

To prepare the French toast, place the sliced bread into the batter and soak for about 1 minute. On a flat pan, flat grill or large fry pan, add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter and melt. Once melted, put slices of the soaked bread onto the grill or pan. Grill on medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, flip the bread and cook until the other side is lightly golden.

Serve with fresh fruits, Cashew Vanilla Cream and Bourbon-Spiced Maple Syrup, if desired.

    What suggestion do you have to substitute for the cashew butter? We have a cashew allergy in the family. Would almond butter work as well?

    Almond butter might not offer the same creamy texture.... but give it a try. Alternately, I might suggest macadamia butter if that is an option as it has a richness similar to cashews. ~Ken

    I just wanted to say I made this french toast and it was phenomenal. It blew my parents away, and was the best french toast I've eaten ever. A few notes: I didn't have cashew butter so I used 1/3 cup raw cashews, and I blended the mix in a vitamix so it was still silky smooth. I used sweet batard bread, which was perfect. The mix kept well in the fridge to use over the next few days, made it easy for a special weekday breakfast.

    I love this recipe! I first had it during the plant based course, and have used it often since then. This summer I stayed at a B&B and the owner wasn't sure how to feed a vegan, so I just took a mason jar full of this yummy mixture and she made me French Toast for breakfast, then asked for the recipe. Delish!!

    Great strategy, Alison! And definitely an easy and delicious go-to for anyone extending hospitality to plant-based folks.

    Can I use peanut butter or hard margarine? Cashew butter is more expensive and not easy to find. thanks

    Absolutely, Corrado! Any nut butter is nice with this preparation, as would be other 'finishing' ingredients of your liking.
