Difficulty: Easy to medium
Prep time: 12 minutes plus 10 mins total cooking
Ingredients (Serves 1):
Toast 2 large slices of sourdough
200ml almond milk
1 medium size ripe banana
½ tsp vanilla paste
Vegan Nutella:1 cup roasted hazelnuts
2 tbsp cacao powder
¼ cup almond milk
2 tbsp coconut sugar
How to make it…
Making the nutella is super easy and once made, it’ll keep in a jar in the fridge for a couple of weeks (if it lasts that long!).
Blend together the roasted hazelnuts, cacao powder, almond milk and coconut sugar until all the ingredients are combined and a think spread forms.
Now, onto the French toast. Start by generously spreading the nutella onto two slices of thickly cut sourdough. Of course you can use any spread you like and any type of nut butter works well – I just love the combination of hazelnuts and cacao as a filling.
Once spread, stick the two slices together and soak in a mixture of blended almond milk, banana and vanilla paste. Allow both slices of bread to fully soak up the liquid before placing in a hot non-stick pan. Feel free to use a little coconut oil, this helps ensure a crispy coating. Give the bread roughly 3-4 minutes before turning over, allowing both sides to cook.
The bread should have a nice golden brown colour on the outside and still be slightly soggy inside. This texture combined with the nutella is heavenly.
