Adapted from the very rude and hilarious peeps at Thug Kitchen, this apricot and banana french toast is a delicious vegan version of french toast. Lose the eggs and watch the magic happen. Serve with banana or any other fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup, a side of coconut yoghurt and it’s heaven on a plate. Get into it, it’s good. Substitute for gluten free bread for the GF version.

Apricot French Toast
Makes 8 slices
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 ripe banana
crusty bread cut into slices (sour dough or similar)
maple syrup, cinnamon, fresh fruit to serve
What do I do now?
In a small sauce pan simmer your milk and apricots on low heat for about 5-10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Once cool add this to your blender / nutri ninja with the banana, flax seeds, vanilla essence and blend until smooth.
Pour the batter into a shallow dish and mix in the cinnamon.
Coat your bread on both sides and shallow fry in some olive oil until golden. About 1-2 minutes per side.
Top with your favourite fruit and maple syrup – enjoy! Add a side of coconut yoghurt if you like.
Anything else I should know?
Eat these straight after cooking. You do not need egg to make french toast! Try this and see how good it is. Yum!
