Do you love French Toast but you are vegan? If you said yes to both then this is the perfect breakfast for you. Even if you aren’t vegan and do like eggs, I recommend you try this simple and delicious recipe. I used Food For Life Ezekial cinnamon raisin bread which is delicious. Instead of a traditional egg batter, I blended bananas and a few other ingredients to make a nice batter that the French Toast cooked very well with. It important you blend the banana mixture so that it coats the bread properly when you cook it. The peanut butter maple topping is very easy and adds another dimension of flavor and texture to the dish.
