What You’ll Need…

What You’ll Do…

  1. Place the Gingerbread Granola in a food processor and pulse until it breaks down into small crumb sized pieces. If you don't have a food processor, you can place the granola inside a plastic resealable bag and crush it with a rolling pin. Pour the granola into a shallow dish and set it aside for later.
  2. Drain the chickpeas and reserve the l starchy chickpea brine (aquafaba).
  3. In a large flat bowl, mix 1/2 cup of aquafaba with the protein powder until no lumps remain. If desired, add optional ingredients to the mixture (cinnamon, maple syrups, or sweetener of choice) now.
  4. Soak both sides of each bread slice in the mixture until fully coated.
  5. Place the soaked bread  into the dish with the Gingerbread Granola & coat both sides.
  6. Heat a non-stick fry pan on medium-high with cooking oil, plant-based butter alternative, or cooking spray. Fry each side of the french toast for 2 minutes or until golden on each side.
  7. Transfer french toast to a plate and sprinkle with an additional handful of Gingerbread Granola as well as any additional toppings of choice. Some of our favorites include fresh berries, sliced bananas, dairy-free yogurt, powdered sugar, and coco-whip. 
  8. Serve & enjoy!
