This phenomenal gluten-free, vegan French toast is a super-easy staple to add to your righteous recipe repertoire. It's so rich and decadent, nobody will ever guess it doesn't contain wheat, eggs, and dairy. Caramelized bananas are always a hit, but stewed apples, pears, peaches, or rhubarb are epic, too.
The key to hitting the sweet spot and getting the bread crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside (the perfect balance in my humble opinion) is soaking the bread for the prescribed amount of time until it's evenly coated, adding coconut oil as needed depending on your stovetop and pan, and keeping the toast sizzling on each side until it is cooked through.
For a decadent breakfast, brunch, dessert, or (dare I say it?) snack, you can't beat this phenomenal French toast. So simple, so delicious, so creamy, so crispy, you may never blend your batter using dairy milk and eggs again. The coconut and nut boosters increase the indulgence, and the rum lobs the flavor into "to-die-for" territory. Bon appétit!
