Banana French Toast with Homemade Caramel

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Servings 6 to 8 servings
This French Toast recipe isn't exactly traditional, but it follows it in spirit. The preperation is actually quite simple: dairy-free milk, chia seeds, vanilla and maple syrup! The trick here is to let the mixture sit for a few minutes so the Chia can do it's thing. You'll see we've also added a pureed banana to the mix because we wanted it to be extra tasty (you can leave it out if you want). You can make this recipe with nearly any bread, but we suggest a nice seedy one for the texture and nutrients. Top this dish with our homemade caramel recipe and you have yourself a breakfast fit for the holidays!
