Servings 6 French toast
- 1 cup Horizon® Chocolate Protein Milk
- 1 tablespoon natural unsweetened cocoa
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¼ teaspoon black salt
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 4 - 6 tablespoons butter
- 6 slices bread thick slices, approx. 1 inch
- 6 big marshmallows (optional)
- Chocolate syrup to drizzle to taste (optional)
- Roasted coconut flakes to taste (optional)
- Small marshmallows to decorate to taste (optional)
Mix chocolate milk, cocoa, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, black salt, and nutritional yeast in a shallow baking dish.
Dip bread in milk mixture, turning to coat both sides evenly.
Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the bread slices until golden brown, 3 - 4 minutes per side. Wipe skillet and repeat with remaining butter and bread. At this point, the chocolate French toast is ready to eat.
If you don't want to add marshmallow, just dust with confectioner’s sugar, if desired, and serve warm with pure maple syrup and fresh berries. If you want the marshmallow version, follow the steps below.
ULTIMATE MARSHMALLOW-COCONUT CHOCOLATE FRENCH TOAST:
Preheat your oven to broil. Place your oven-safe wire cooling rack directly on top of a sheet pan.
Place French toast over the wire cooling rack. Top each French toast with a big marshmallow. Broil for 2-3 minutes or until the marshmallows are lightly golden and starting to melt.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and small marshmallow, if desired. Serve.
MAKE AHEAD: Make and fry French toast as directed in the recipe. Let them cool completely. Wrap fried toasts with aluminum foil and refrigerate up to 3 days. When ready to serve, preheat oven to 350º F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and place the French toast on the rack; bake for 10 -15 minutes until heated through.
STORE: Since this recipe does not have eggs, it lasts a little longer than the traditional egg version. To store French toast, let them cool completely, then wrap them with aluminum foil to retain moisture. Refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 2 months.
FREEZE: To freeze French toast, let them cool completely, then wrap them with aluminum foil to retain moisture. I like to wrap them individually so I can pull out and just heat however much I want to reheat at a time. Transfer wrapped toasts to a resealable freezer bag. Freeze for 2 months.
REHEAT: Frozen French toast can be reheated directly from the freezer. OVEN: Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and place the frozen French toast on the rack; place in oven and bake at 350°F for 10 - 15 minutes, flipping once about halfway through baking. MICROWAVE: Reheat the French toast for 2 minutes on high, but they will not be as crisp coming out of the microwave as they would from the oven.
WHAT IS BLACK SALT OR KALA NAMAK?
Black salt or kala namak is a type of rock salt; a salty and pungent-smelling condiment used in South Asia. Although it is called black salt, its color is not black; it has a purple-ish to pink-ish color. Due to its sulfur content, it tastes and smells like hard-boiled egg yolks. This salt is used in many vegan/eggless recipes to mimic the flavor of the eggs. Keep in mind, Black salt or kala namak is salt so use it with moderation. I only use it to add the "eggy" taste to some eggless recipe, not as a salt substitute.
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL YEAST?
Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that comes in the form of flakes or as a yellow powder and can be found in most natural food stores. Due to its strong flavor—that is described as nutty, cheesy, or creamy—nutritional yeast is often used an ingredient in cheese substitutes. It is often used by vegans in place of cheese.
In this recipe, the nutritional yeast will add a rich touch of flavor that, mixed with the Black salt or kala namak, will make the perfect combination to substitute the eggs, resulting in the most AMAZING Eggless French Toast ever!
