Alkaline French Toast Sticks
The SMELL of these things were out of this world good af while baking. Omg 😯 and it was perfect for this cold morning to warm up my kitchen with the smell of sweet cinnamon & burro banana & spelt baking 👅. These taste just like the frozen French toast sticks I remember tearing down when I was little. They aren’t quite on the level of homemade French toast yet, but these are perfect if you miss those sticks.
Once done pan frying, I drizzled some of my Walnut praline sauce, Walnuts, and date syrup on top.
Rough Recipe for Alkaline French Toast Sticks
- 1 ripe burro banana
- 1/3 c of plant milk
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon (or more to taste) of date syrup
- 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 4 slices of dense spelt bread
- 1/4 c of sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Blend all ingredients except the spelt bread and sugar in a blender until it forms a smoothie like batter.
Cut the spelt bread into sticks - similar size as the frozen French toast sticks I grew up on. Let the smoothie batter soak into the bread for a few minutes - 5 minutes should be good, depending on how dense your bread is.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the soaked bread in the pan, and sprinkle with sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Bake the sticks for 5 minutes on each side. Heat up a pan, and pan fry each stick in coconut oil until slightly caramelized.
Drizzle with date syrup and enjoy!
