Ingredients

gingerbread fondue

  • 1 x 400 ml can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 C maple syrup (can substitute another sweetener)
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all-spice

french toast

  • 1 small loaf dense bread (I used a walnut sourdough)
  • 2 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 C nondairy milk
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter, for frying
  • 1-2 tsp powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to around 150°F to 200°F and place a non-stick or parchment lined baking sheet in the oven. This is where you can keep the cooked french toast sticks warm while you're cooking the rest in batches.

  2. Combine all the ingredients for the gingerbread fondue in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk until well combined and allow it to come to a simmer. Then lower your heat and whisk occasionally while it bubbles. This will thicken into a creamy syrup in about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, slice your bread into thick sticks. Combine the french toast batter ingredients together in a bowl and allow a few pieces to soak while your pan gets hot. Add a coating of vegan butter to the hot pan, then place 3 to 4 battered french toast sticks in the pan. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on all sides until golden and crispy.

  4. Remove the warm french toast sticks from the oven and dust with powdered sugar just before serving. Pour the warm gingerbread fondue into a bowl or small individual ramekins for dipping.
