These are my very first french toasts! Believe it or not, I've never tasted french toasts before...until now!...and the dangerous part is that I really liked this recipe! As if I hadn't enough to control my sweet tooth now I add another recipe to my 'Favorites' list, hehe.
Since it was my first attempt and I wasn't sure of how sweet and oily/greasy these toasts will came out I decided to make the vegan version, much more lighter and healthier.
It's a quick recipe, perfect to enjoy on a sunday morning with fresh fruits and pure maple syrup. I love how my kitchen smells after making them, it brings me back memories of when I was a child and my parents took me to the fair, that sweet smell of cotton candy, waffles, crèpes, candied apples has always mesmerized me.
