What you need:

  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup tofu, mashed
  • 2 tbsp Meridian Smooth Almond Butter 
  • 1½ tbsp maple syrup 
  • ½ tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed 
  • 4 slices thick, crusty bread (preferably a day or two old)

To serve:

  • Raspberry chia jam or raspberry jam
  • Meridian Smooth Almond Butter
  • Coconut yoghurt
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Flaked almonds
  • Maple syrup

Serves: 2


  1. To make your French toast batter, blend together the milk, almond butter, tofu, maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla until smooth. Pour into a large mixing bowl, then stir in the flax. Set aside for 10 minutes. 

  2. In the meantime, preheat a griddle pan on a medium heat. Brush lightly with coconut oil. Alternatively, you can melt some coconut oil (around 1-2 tsp) in a regular frying pan. 

  3. Soak each slice of your bread (on both sides) in the mixture for around 20 seconds. 

  4. Place the bread on your griddle or pan and fry until golden (2-4 minutes). Flip and repeat on the remaining side, with all of your bread. 

  5. Serve warm slathered with almond butter and jam and topped with berries, coconut yoghurt, maple syrup and flaked almonds.
