Vegan Apple French Toast A La Mode

A warm french toast, crispy on the outside, warm and fluffy on the inside, tastes a lot like a freshly made donut! When topped with apple pie filling, creamy soy vanilla ice cream, and a drizzle a little maple syrup, you will be transformed.
This was a good alternative to good old American apple pie, and it was easy and fun to make!  I used thick cut bread (Texas toast- found a vegan one!).  I made this for friends at a get together for dessert, and everyone gobbled them up.  This recipe is an adaptation of the "Fronch Toast" from VWAV.  I subbed the coconut milk for the soy creamer, because it was what I had on hand, but it doesn't have a strong coconutty flavor.  A lot of people asked me what was in the batter, since I didn't use eggs.  The "secret" ingredient is the chickpea flour- that is a must!

You can also top with a variety of toppings.  Toasted coconut was excellent!  Allow guests to assemble themselves, and offer more than one topping.

Makes 12-16 slices (you can halve the recipe if cooking for just a few people, but keep in mind that most will want more than one)

12-16 slices Texas Toast bread
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup soy milk
3 Tbsp. corn starch
pinch of salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chickpea flour
vegetable oil for pan frying

Whisk together all ingredients, with chickpea flour last.  Whisk until just combined.  A few clumps is ok.  Heat a non-stick skillet and add a few tablespoons of oil for frying.  Dip bread (fresh, no need to dry) into batter to thoroughly coat both sides, letting excess batter drip off before frying them for a couple minutes on each side. Turn down heat if it gets too dark too quick.
