Banana Bread French Toast with Homemade Caramel
This recipe isn't exactly traditional, but it has the spirit of French toast. The ingredients list is simple: plant-based milk, chia seeds, vanilla and maple syrup. The trick is to let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the chia can work its magic. We've added a mashed banana for extra flavour (it is optional - you can leave it out if you prefer). Make this recipe with just about any bread. However, we suggest a seed-hardy one for the texture and nutrients. Top this dish with our homemade caramel and you'll have yourself a breakfast fit for the holidays!
In a mixing bowl, stir together the milk, chia, banana and vanilla.
Soak each slice of bread in the mixture, flipping it over so it is completely coated.
In a non-stick pan, heat the coconut oil. Cook each slice of bread until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
Serve with chopped pecans, banana slices and homemade caramel sauce.
