How do you make easy vegan chocolate stuffed french toast?

What is Stuffed French toast?

This should go without saying, but I’m about to say it anyways: This Easy Vegan Chocolate Stuffed French Toast is a thick slice of sourdough or high fiber bread slices (to hold its shape), loaded with all vegan chocolate chunks.

How to make vegan chocolate Stuffed French toast

To start, Simply add the cinnamon, tofu, plant-based milk, sugar and tbsp or tsp vanilla to a blender to create the delicious batter. Choose your favourite chocolate, create a small slit down one side of the thick piece of  bread and stuff the piece of chocolate down the centre.

When choosing the type of bread to use, look for something that holds its shape well! This will look something like a vegan brioche bread, sourdough bread, high fiber loaf or high density white bread. Make sure not to get it sliced ahead of time!

How long does French toast take to make?

Not long at all! From start to finish, Vegan Dark Chocolate Stuffed French toast takes no longer than 15 minutes prep time and up to 30 minutes total time. Now that all the prep work is done, it’s time to get cooking! Make the perfect Mother’s Day or Christmas morning breakfast in no time at all by first heating up the frying pan. Feel free to use what you’re most comfortable with. Instead of a non-stick pan, we usually opt for a cast iron skillet or stainless steel pan.

Now it’s time to get our hands dirty, place the bread in the batter and fully coat the outside. As a result there’s no need to let sit and soak throughout, it should be fully coated upon contact. transfer the piece of bread directly to the buttered pan to fry for about 5-7 minutes. When the French toast is crispy and golden brown on the outside, remove the slice of bread from heat and your chocolate should be perfectly melted on the inside.

Here’s where you can really start to have fun with your vegan chocolate French toast dish. To add some personality to this vegan holiday breakfast, use your choice of berries such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or strawberry. Similarly,  I took the liberty of adding plenty of dark maple syrup (my favourite) and a hand-full of crushed pistachios. Other great toppings include whipped cream, icing sugar, vegan honey and cocoa powder.
