Vegan Banana French Toast

Sometimes French toast is a little too eggy for me - I have a real rocky relationship with eggs. We're not good friends, more acquaintances you think you want to see, then when you do you spend the next two hours nauseous and deeply regretting you ever wasted your time. Hidden in things like quiche I don't mind, but outright... not so much.

This vegan French toast is lovely - sweet, silky and tastes like bananas (which I also don't like, but will save that story for another day!) Topped with maple syrup and a dusting of cinnamon, I'd find it hard to say no.

The recipe comes from the 21 Day Vegan Kickstart meal plan from last year, so if you're following my plan for this week, it's a bonus surprise. 'Tis good.

2 medium bananas
2/3 cup soy milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/8 tsp cinnamon
4 slices whole-wheat bread
vegetable oil spray


1. Blend bananas, soy milk, syrup and cinnamon until smooth.

2. Pour into a flat, shallow dish and soak bread slices 1 minute on each side.

3. Transfer carefully to a vegetable oil sprayed skillet. Cook first side until lightly browned, about 3 minutes, and cook second side til browned.


  1. I don't like french toast for the same reasons... it is just too eggy.

    I have clicked on a million links and can't find the recipe... clearly because my mind is fogged from the kabana I ate last night.  Hook a girl up will ya?

  2. OMG I thought I was the only one!!!

  3. I haven't eaten eggs in over 18 years. Been a vegetarian since 1971, vegan since 1998. The last time I had eggs they were in a birthday cheesecake and under pressure I had a few mouthfuls ....  half an hour later I felt like a balloon was inflating in my stomach, followed by a night of agony. So glad to be able to say sorry I can't eat eggs. Hate milk as well. I love being an adult and deciding what goes in my own mouth. Thank you for sharing.

  6. Milk is THE WORST!! I never have it. And you're welcome :)

  7. Ohhh ... this sounds so delish - might even have to make this for my lunch!!

  8. I am trying this out. I love the taste of banana but cannot eat them as they are (gag factor). This is right up my alley!

  9. Oooh! Eggs and I aren't friends, not even in quiche (cake and meringue is obviously FINE!), so will have to try this

  10. Can only meringue if it's pavlova :-)
