Sunday Brunch: Vegan Sweet Potato French Toast Recipe

Day 79.

My toddler and I love sweet potatoes. So good and good for you. We usually have them baked with cinnamon or alongside Pesto "Chicken." But, with the new baby we've been doing more sweet potatoes in things she can eat, like pancakes. So, French toast is a natural to try.

Adapted from Sweet Potato French Toast
8-10 slices of Sweet Potato Yeast Bread (substitute agave nectar or simple syrup for honey to veganize this bread)
2-3 "eggs" of mashed banana (about 1/2 to 3/4 of a banana, mashed)
1/4 C almond or soymilk
1 tsp. cinnamon
Maple syrup

Mix all except bread in a shallow bowl. Dip sides of bread into mix and cook on a griddle for about 5 minutes per side or until desired crispiness is achieved.

The Results
Mmm....this one was approved by both the toddler and the baby. I loved it, too. So simple and delicious. It went surprisingly quickly even with starting the bread from scratch and doing the whole recipe at once. The bread is fantastic on its own and makes great French toast. Bonus.

  1. We had a baked-egg thing for brunch: cheeses, artichoke hearts, red peppers. Really good.

  2. I have never made anything like this, I really think it sounds great! Thanks for linking up the Penny Worthy Project this week

  3. Thanks for linking this up. It is a fantastic recipe. I love sweet potato in everything. I have a salad up on Comfy Cook and it is great.
