I remember many Saturdays waking up to my mum’s perfect French toast in the States. I even preferred it to her perfect pancakes! It was such a winner that we’d sometimes be allowed to have it for supper, too. Here’s a healthy twist on this yummy treat – perfect as a breakfast in bed for someone special.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300ml coconut milk
2 very ripe bananas, plus extra, sliced, to serve
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
coconut oil, for greasing
8-10 slices spelt bread

For the coconut cream

Quantity Ingredient
1 x 400ml tin of coconut milk
1 tablespoon maple syrup, plus extra to serve
1/2 vanilla pod

Method

  1. Place the tin of coconut milk in the fridge the night before you make this recipe.
  2. To make the coconut cream, scoop the cream out of the chilled tin of coconut milk and use the leftover water in a smoothie or soup. Place the coconut cream into a mixing bowl and add the maple syrup. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod into the mixture. Using a hand-held whisk, whip the cream until super fluffy.
  3. To make the French toast, put the bananas in a food processor with the coconut milk, chia seeds, ground flaxseed, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract and blitz to a batter.
  4. Coat a frying pan with coconut oil and set over a medium heat. Working in batches, dip the slices of spelt bread into the batter and let them soak for 5–10 seconds on either side. Using a fork, transfer the battered bread to your heated pan and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  5. Serve immediately with the coconut cream topping, maple syrup and some more sliced banana.

Note

  • We all know bananas are high in potassium, but additionally, they contain high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin and makes us happy!
