FOR THE FRENCH TOAST
  1. 2 slices of bread*
  2. 1/3 cup plain flour*
  3. 2/3 cup dairy-free milk
  4. 1 tbsp agave syrup
  5. flavourless oil, such as vegetable or sunflower
FOR THE CHOCOLATE SAUCE
  1. 100 ml dairy-free cream (such as soya or rice)
  2. 60 ml dairy-free milk
  3. 4-5 tbsp brown sugar
  4. 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  5. 2 tbsp vegan margarine
  6. 1 tsp vanilla essence
FOR THE TOPPING
  1. 1 dssp peanut butter per serving
  2. small handful chopped peanuts
  3. icing sugar
Instructions
  1. In a non-stick pan, melt the chocolate ingredients together whilst stirring continuously. Turn the heat down to a simmer and stir occasionally whilst preparing the French toast.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the batter ingredients until lump-free. Set aside whilst you prepare your pan. Take a large frying pan and add a generous splash of oil and heat on full.
  3. Cut your pieces of bread in half and dunk in the batter so that both sides have been submerged. When the oil is nice and hot, place the bread into the frying pan, it should start to sizzle immediately. Fry on each side for a couple of minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  4. Dry off any excess oil using some kitchen paper and serve. Pour over the chocolate sauce and top with a spoonful of peanut butter, a handful of crushed peanuts and a dusting of icing sugar. Enjoy hot!
Notes
  1. * To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute the bread for gluten-free bread and use an alternative flour, such as buckwheat.
