Must-Haves:

French Toast:

  • 1 loaf Challah bread, sliced semi-thick (For Vegan option, use Vegan approved bread!)
  • 1 cup Almond milk, unsweetened vanilla (You can use your own favorite non-dairy milk!)
  • 3 large organic eggs, room temperature (For Vegan option, use chia 'eggs' instead; See Notes!)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tbsps organic pure maple syrup

Caramelized Apples:

  • 1 medium granny smith apple, peeled + diced
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp organic brown sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw!)
  • 1 Tbsp organic pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients (except for the bread) into a large bowl and set aside so that everything marries together and activates, about 5 minutes.

  2. Preheat griddle to medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp of vegan butter, melting it.

  3. Dip 1 slice of bread into the batter, soaking it in for a few seconds on each side. Place slice unto the heated griddle, cooking on each side for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Repeat until all french toast has been made.

To Make Caramelized Apples:

  1. In a separate saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced apples and stir a few times. Add the organic brown sugar and maple syrup and cook for a few minutes, about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sugar should melt and become similar to a caramel-like sauce. Add a pinch of sea salt and the cinnamon. Stir again and remove from heat use immediately.

  2. To serve, top French Toast with Caramelized Apples and maple syrup, if desired.

  3. Bon Appetite!

Tips | Notes:

**For Chia Eggs: Whisk 1 Tbsp chia seeds and 3 Tbsps water in a small bowl until well combined and let sit for 10 minutes. Mixture should be thick.** NOTE: For this recipe just use 2 "chia eggs" (that means 2 Tbsps chia seeds + 6 Tbsps water).
