Maple Pecan French Toast

Nothing is better than having a dessert-worthy dish and calling it breakfast. Maple syrup sets off rich slices of sweet battered toast, guaranteed to please any morning palate.

Serves 4

What You Need:

  • 3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1-1/4 cups soymilk or other dairy-free milk
  • 4 ounces silken tofu, drained
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 8 slices whole-grain or sprouted bread

What You Do:

  1. Place 1/4 cup of the pecans in a dry blender and grind to a powder. Add the soymilk, tofu, vanilla, and 1/4 cup of the maple syrup and blend until smooth. Pour into a large shallow bowl and dip in the bread, coating both sides evenly with the batter.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200º. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the prepared bread, and cook until browned on both sides. Keep the cooked French toast warm in the oven while preparing remaining slices.
  3. In a small saucepan combine the remaining 1/2 cup of maple syrup and remaining 1/2 cup pecans and heat until warm. Spoon over the French toast and serve at once.
