Coconut Banana Vegan French Toast


French toast can seem tricky without eggs, but this flavorful coconut banana vegan French toast works well. It’s more moist than your average eggy recipe, but has a crisp exterior and a wonderful naturally sweet flavor. The recipe was originally shared with us by Jackie of the Vegan Diet. She adapted it from what is now Spruce Eats.

If you are worried about it being too moist, you can add a little starch, about 1 tablespoon, to the batter. Also, if you prefer less coconut flavor, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter.

As is, the flavor of this coconut banana vegan French toast isn’t too pronounced, and lends itself to all types of toppings. We like fresh fruit, shredded coconut, drizzly nut butter, maple syrup, or a drizzle of agave nectar.
