Preparation

For the French Toast:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients (except for the bread) into a large bowl and set aside so that everything marries together and activates, about 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter, melting it.
  3. Dip 1 slice of bread into the batter, soaking it in for a few seconds on each side. Place slice unto the heated griddle, cooking on each side for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Repeat until all french toast have been made.

For the Compote:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the blueberries, lemon juice, cane sugar, vanilla, and water together, stirring until everything comes to a boil and the blueberry juices are released.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced considerably, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. To thicken, mix together the arrowroot and WARM WATER until it's combined and has a "milky" consistency. Add to the blueberry mixture and stir until it begins to thicken.
  3. Once done, remove from heat.
  4. To serve—stack french toast atop each other, spoon a generous amount of blueberry compote/topping and drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
  5. Bon Appetit!
