Ingredients
 

  • 7 slices hearty white bread, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • Vegan butter, as need to cook

Berry Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1/2 cup vegan cream cheese, plain (Kite Hills' is my favorite!)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp berry jam/spread, of your choice
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh strawberries, quartered

French Toast Batter

  • 1 cup almond or soy milk, plain, unsweetened
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, 100% pure
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract, 100% pure
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp flax meal
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt

Instructions
 

Berry Cream Cheese Filling

  • In a small bowl, stir the vegan cream cheese, jam, and lemon together juice until smooth. Fold in the berries.
  • Set this in the refrigerator to chill while you batter and cook the French toast.

French Toast Batter

  • Whisk the ingredients together in a large shallow bowl until no visible bits are showing.

How to Cook the French Toast

  • Set 2 pieces of bread at a time into the batter for 30 seconds on each side.
  • Place a large saute pan over medium/medium-low heat and melt 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Drip off the excess liquid from the bread and place it into the pan. Cook each side of the bread for 3 minutes. Each time you cook more French toast, you will need to add more butter.

How to Assemble the Stuffed French Toast

  • Lay down a slice of French toast and top with 1/4 cup cream cheese filling.
  • Set another slice of French toast on top and then another 1/4 cup cream cheese filling.
  • Top with one more slice of French toast, some fresh berries, and lots of maple syrup!
