Pumpkin Spice French Toast Sandwich
Updated: Jun 27, 2020
It's sweet, crispy, spiced and oh so comforting. I cannot recommend this dish enough! I used the Botanika blends cinnamon custard doughnut protein powder in this recipe but you can easily switch it for any neutral/vanilla flavoured plant based protein of your choice.
French toast batter:
60ml pumpkin puree
100ml soy milk
10g protein powder (if unsweetened, add some sweetener as well)
Pinch of salt
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
2tsp brown sugar
2tsp lemon juice
2 slices Bread
1tsp vegan butter
2tbsp Cashew butter
Jam of choice (I used boysenberry jam)
Finely slice your apple and add to a saucepan with cinnamon, brown sugar, lemon juice and water and cook while stirring for a few minutes until tender.
Mix all ingredients for the French toast batter in a bowl and whisk well. Add 1tsp of butter to a pan and heat. Once melted, dip two slices of bread in the French toast batter until completely soaked and add to the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Assemble the sandwich by spreading 1tbsp cashew butter on each slice, then add jam and cooked apples. Close the sandwich, cut in half and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup (if you wanna get messy with it).
