French Toast

A versatile and delicious vegan French toast based on garbanzo bean flour. This has basically become our go-to weekend breakfast when we feel like treating ourselves. Since the toast itself is not sweet, it goes so well with both sweet and savory toppings. So enjoy with fruits, maple syrup drizzle, jams or go with your favorite plant cheese. You can also keep the leftovers (if any) in the fridge and warm up later, it will still be good.
