Vegan Eggnog French Toast

French toast isn’t something I make often for a couple of reasons. It seems complicated – more so than pancakes or waffles, though I can’t figure out my logic here – and too heavy for just an ordinary breakfast.

 

This vegan eggnog french toast debunks those beliefs, especially if you have some extra vegan eggnog smoothie on hand. Simply dredge some gluten free bread in healthy eggnog, lightly brown on both sides in a skillet and – done: vegan eggnog french toast.

 

I made my vegan eggnog french toast using the master bread recipe from Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day (if you’re gluten free, get this book!), substituting the four egg whites with two flax eggs. To make the loaf, I used the gluten free flour blend demonstrated on the Gluten Free Girl blog. Any gluten free bread should work, but I’d suggest a heartier bread rather than something pre-sliced.

 

For this recipe, I used some extra vegan eggnog smoothie (which I made with Vega’s new protein powder), but other eggnog recipes should also work.

Gluten-Free Crackers

Gluten-Free Crackers

I’ll never forget the first time I tried Mary’s Gone Gluten-Free crackers. My roommate in grad school introduced me to them and after a handful, I was hooked. Crunchy, wholesome, and healthy with a deep nutty flavor, they are the perfect vehicle for any topping, sweet or savory. I’ve enjoyed these crackers with nut butter, jam, cheese, hummus and healthy nutella. Gluten-free and vegan, these crackers are also amazing plain.

 

These are my take on Mary’s Gone Gluten-Free Crackers. They are super easy to make and taste almost identical to the real ($4 + per box) thing. Aside from saving money, the benefits to making these at home are many; you can experiment with the shape and size of your crackers, add herbs or spices or play around with types of seeds. This weekend, Josh and I made one batch in a sheet (so that we could crack them into irregular pieces) and one batch in circular rounds like the store-bought Mary’s Gone. Both ways taste delicious.
