Vegan French Toast with Blueberries and Coconut Yoghurt

This recipe is so, so easy to make! I whip it up every time we have leftover bread or baguette at home.

We just made a carrot soup with some home-made garlic bread and the next morning this half a baguette was just staring at me…

I do find it interesting I mostly cook to make sure we don’t waste any food (it’s the ultimate motivation! Find my overripe bananas banana bread on YouTube here).

Anyway, this recipe takes a second to create and is pretty fool proof. I love to serve it with coconut yoghurt and blueberry jam—Lea Luna was asking (read: shrieking) for whole blueberries so I ended up not making any jam but I’ll include the recipe for it in here so you have it!

Again, simplicity is key and you can trust that every recipe I share with you guys is something you can do with a toddler on your hip.


The Yoga Girl® Kitchen - Vegan French Toast with Fresh Blueberry-Chia Jam

First, the French toast....

The Ingredients:

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I prefer soy or almond but any milk works)
  • 2 tbsp flour (any kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • Thick slices of day-old bread (toast won’t do!)
  • Coconut oil for the pan

The Process:

  1. Mix the flour with a tiny bit of the milk until blended.
  2. Add the rest of the milk and the vanilla, cinnamon, salt and maple syrup. Whisk it all together and put a pan over medium heat with a dash of coconut oil.
  3. Dip each slice of bread in the mixture for a few seconds on each side (let’s make it 4 seconds, Mississippi style!) and then put in the pan.
  4. Fry both sides until golden!
  5. Continue until you’ve run out of bread (this mixture will make a whole baguette).

Next, the jam...

Blueberry-Chia Jam

The Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

The Process:

  1. Put blueberries in a pot and cook over very low heat.
  2. When warm, mash the blueberries together with a potato masher.
  3. Add the chia seeds and sweeten to taste (I'd go for less maple syrup for this recipe, especially if you like maple syrup on your French toast!).
  4. Leave to settle for 5 minutes (to give time for the chia to help thicken the jam!).

Serve your French toast with a big heaping of blueberry jam, a dollop of coconut yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. And coffee! Don’t forget coffee.

Enjoy!
