This Delicious French Toast + Caramelized Apples recipe is irresistibly good and is the perfect fall season treat for those early mornings or that holiday get together! A beautiful take on the classic French Toast recipe and comes covered in sweetly-spiced, caramelized apples. Super easy to make and can be whipped together in a few short minutes. Completely dairy-free. Vegan option available.
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.
Preheat griddle to medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp of vegan butter, melting it.
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.
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.
To serve, top French Toast with Caramelized Apples and maple syrup, if desired.
**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).
