Banana Cinnamon French Toast

I made this on one of my first mornings as a vegan, as I was craving french toast but could no longer eat eggs. So, having read that banana can be an egg substitute, I decided to give this a shot. Personally, I like it a lot. It’s hella decadent, too, so don’t sit down to eat it without water or soy milk, because it will seriously make your throat dry. The amount that this makes totally varies on the type of bread you use. I think this should make enough for two servings no matter what, but if you don’t use very absorbent bread you could probably get three or four.

Bread slices, enough to make about two servings of french toast
1 banana, ripened and starting to brown
½ cup rice/soy milk
Vanilla, to taste
Cinnamon, to taste
Maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, and/or banana slices, to top (optional)

Put a griddle over medium heat and wait for it to heat up. Puree the banana however you’d like (I use a hand-held food processor), but make sure that it’s pretty much liquidated. Put it in a medium size bowl and add the rice milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk this mixture and dunk the bread in it, then placing the bread on the griddle. Flip and toast the bread so that it’s browned up on both sides, and then slide it onto a plate. Garnish with maple syrup, cinnamon sugar, and/or banana slices.

*note* Because the banana is so sugary and thick, you should probably coat your pan with a bit of canola oil. Even if you’re using a nonstick pan, I would still suggest this, seeing as I kinda screwed up a batch of this on a nonstick pan.
