French toast is the perfect breakfast comfort food. This Pumpkin French Toast is perfect for fall…especially with a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
One of my favorite things to do on cold, winter weekends is drinking coffee while I cook a delicious breakfast.
I like making something that I wouldn’t typically make on a weekday, and something that tastes a little decadent.
Since I gave up eating dairy, I haven’t made as many weekend breakfasts. I think I just wasn’t feeling super inspired so I stuck to drinking green smoothies, eating scrambled eggs or having oatmeal.
But last weekend I was feeling inspired to recreate one of my favorite breakfasts – French toast. I wanted something that had fall flavors, so I added pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. The result was an incredibly delicious and decadent tasting breakfast.
To make this version dairy free, I used almond milk instead of dairy milk and vegan butter instead of regular butter. You could also use coconut oil instead of butter. I used vegan butter because my BF doesn’t like coconut.
This was the perfect cold weather weekend breakfast.
