Whole Grain Vegan French Toast

Enjoy this departure from the typically heavy and sugary French Toast! With all natural sweeteners like vanilla extract and bananas, you can satisfy your need for weekend brunch and still feel good about it later. The silken tofu in this recipe helps to add thickness to the batter and a little bit of protein to keep you going. For a delicious treat, top it off with some fresh berries and whipped coconut cream!
