Basic Vegan French Toast

Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 6 min.
Total Time: 26 min.
Servings: 2

What you need

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1 heaping Tbsp chia seeds (whole or ground into a fine meal so they're undetectable)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup (or sub honey if not vegan)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4-5 slices bread (I went with a sturdy rustic wheat bread, but also tried it with whole wheat sandwich bread and it worked well both ways)

How to do it

1. Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large, shallow bowl.

2. Place in the fridge to activate for 10-20 minutes.Preheat griddle to medium heat (~350 degrees F) and grease with 1 Tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil.Dip each slice of bread in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side. If your bread is dry, leave it in a little longer. If you're using sandwich bread, it should only need 25-30 seconds total to soak.

3. Place on griddle and cook until golden brown on the underside. Carefully flip and cook until the other side is golden brown as well - 3-4 minutes.Top with desired toppings: I went with coconut whipped cream, strawberries and maple syrup.
