Equipment

  • High-speed blender
  • Shallow bowl
  • Non stick frying pan

Ingredients
 

Bread

  • 6-8 thick slices sourdough or other rustic bread ($1.34)

Batter

  • 1 cup coconut milk ($0.54)
  • ½ large ripe banana ($0.10)
  • 2 tablespoon corn starch ($0.05)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds ($0.04)
  • ½ tablespoon cane sugar ($0.01)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla ($0.20)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon ($0.04)

For Cooking

  • 1-2 tablespoon coconut oil or vegan butter ($0.12)

For Serving optional

  • Vegan butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Fruit, peaches, strawberries, sliced banana, etc.
  • Coconut whip or yogurt

Instructions
 

  • To start, mix all batter ingredients in a blender on high until you have a smooth consistency. Then, transfer it to a shallow bowl big enough to fit your bread.
  • Let the batter mixture rest for 5 minutes. In the meantime, heat some coconut oil or vegan butter in a non-stick frying pan or griddle on medium. It's very important to have a non-stick pan for this recipe since the batter is quite sticky.
  • Next, dip each slice of bread in the batter for 6-8 seconds on each side. Be careful not to soak it for too long to prevent soggy French toast. Transfer the bread to a pan, and cook on medium for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  • After you flip the slices the first time, put a lid over your pan or griddle so the inside properly cooks. Alternatively, you can also bake the slices after they're done cooking in the pan. If you do this, bake them on 300°F for an extra 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • Serve immediately with coconut whip, fruit of choice, coconut yogurt, or maple syrup on top for a delicious breakfast or brunch.

Notes

  • Optional ingredients are not reflected in the price or calories of this recipe.
  • It's best to use sturdy, rustic bread for this recipe to prevent sogginess.
  • You can also use slightly stale, or day-old sandwich bread.
