Vegan Fat-Free Whole Wheat Gingerbread French Toast Recipe
Somehow I made it through childhood without ever making a gingerbread house. It's something I've wanted to do for a few years now and have never got around to it. Making everything from scratch seemed so... daunting. Plus I'd have to buy all sorts of ingredients I never use to make it (like oil and all purpose flour, to name a few). But, my friends, I'm about to check "build my own gingerbread house" off my bucket list. You see, I noticed a kit that was -- squeee! vegan! Of course the ingredients list is about a mile long and contains all sorts of the nasty -- but I'm not eating it so game on!
To get myself in the 'mood' I made Whole-Wheat, Fat-Free Vegan Gingerbread French Toast! It's just delicious. I hope you enjoy it one lazy weekend morning this Holiday season!
A holiday spin on a wonderful breakfast dish. The spices add that little something you never knew was missing from french toast. Don't want to wait until morning - have some as a dessert! So quick and simple this is sure to become a family favorite.
8 whole wheat bread slices
1 cup fat-free soy milk
¼ cup pure maple syrup
¼ cup chickpea flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
Whisk all ingredients (except bread) together and pour into a shallow dish. Heat a non-stick skillet over med-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Soak bread slices in the milk mixture and then transfer to the heated skillet. Cook each side for about two minutes or until slightly brown and crisp, respraying skillet between batches or as necessary.
