Protein Powered Vegan French Toast – Without The Toast

Traditionally, French Toast is made by 1. slicing some bread, 2. soaking the bread into a mixture of eggs + milk, 2. pan-frying the bread (or baking it), and 3. topping it with syrup. You can follow this method to make Protein French Toast too, all you do is soak your bread in a mixture containing eggs + milk + protein powder. I made a video showing you how to do this here. This method is pretty straight forward, especially if you’re used to making regular french toast.

But what happens if you want to do away with the middle man? If you want to eliminate the bread, the bread-soaking, and the bread-frying process? Well, then you make toastless french toast.

I’ve uploaded quite a few toastless frech toast recipes on the blog. See, for example, this recipe for Casein French Toast Hearts. Or this one for a more Pudding-like type of Protein French Toast. Or this one for good old fashioned Whey Protein French Toast. Or this one for Lemon Poppy Seed French Toast.  Or, finally, this one for Blueberry Upside Down Muffin-Shaped French Toast.

There’s lots of ways to make french toast, beyond the usual ‘dip the bread in egg and fry it up.’

Take for example this recipe here, for vegan french toast. It uses just five basic ingredients and all you need to do is blend them together, bake the ensuing batter, and, when you’re ready to eat it, cut yourself a slice and top it with some walnuts and honey. You can bake a bunch in advance and just eat them whenever! The end product is extremely tasty and categorically ‘french toastian’ :-DBesides the recipe though, what I want you guys to leave with from this post is the knowledge you can make french toast without using bread – without using toast. How? By making your own ‘bread’ with all the moist ingredients added in so that all you need to do is add some syrup.

Ingredients 

1 cup  cartoned coconut milk (you can sub this with almond or rice milk)
1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour (or just ground up regular oats)
3/4 cup vanilla pea protein powder
6 medjool dates
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:

1. Blend everything together and divide the batter into six mini-cake moulds or large muffin cups (I used these). You COULD bake the whole thing in a medium sized brownie tray though, I just wanted to end up with round pieces of french toast.

2. Bake the whole thing at 170 C (338 F) for about an hour or until, when stabbed with a knife, your knife comes out clean. Finally, top the with honey, maple syrup, or calorie-free syrup + some walnuts.
