Overnight French Toast

Overnight French Toast (4)

I adapted this recipe slightly from High Five magazine to veganize it. It’s a great recipe that will have kids whisking, mixing, arranging, and pouring batter – so many great steps, and Travis wanted to do them all!

First, adults should cut a 16-ounce loaf of day-old French bread into 1-inch thick slices; set aside.

In a bowl, have your child whisk together: 2 Ener-G eggs, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 and 1/2 cups hemp milk, 1/2 cup non-dairy creamer, and 1/3 cup maple syrup.

Now it’s time to arrange the bread slices in a baking dish. Travis placed his slices in very importantly; I did a little tidying up once he had finished just so the slices were in an even layer.

Help your child hold the bowl to pour the batter evenly over the bread slices. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, remove the dish from the fridge at least one hour before baking. Bake at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes.

To serve, combine 2 tablespoons melted Earth Balance butter with 2 tablespoons maple syrup and drizzle evenly over the slices.
