Uh-huh, you read that title right. All your wildest dreams are going to come true with this super-indulgent and crazy delicious weekend brunch recipe. Or midweek recipe. Heck, have this for dinner if you want! I called it “hot chocolate” because it tastes the way I make hot chocolate: thick and luxurious, extra chocolatey, bittersweet. In short, totally irresistible.

For the Hot Chocolate Mix:
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
For the toast:
  • 6 slices of sourdough bread
  • Coconut oil for frying (approx. 1-2 tbsp)
For the vegan “Nutella”:
  • 3 tbsp crunchy hazelnut butter (I use Meridian)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


1. Start with the vegan “Nutella”: mix all the ingredients in a small cup. Spread on 3 of the bread slices. 2. Next, prepare the “hot chocolate” mix:  blend all the ingredients until smooth, then pour into a deep dish or hollow plate. 3. Soak the bread slices, including the ones already spread with “Nutella”, a few minutes on each side. They should be really well soaked. 4. Assemble the sandwiches: take one slice of bread coated with “Nutella” and one uncoated (both soaked, though) and stick them together. Heat a little coconut oil in a large frying pan. Fry the sandwich for about one minute on each side. 5. Repeat twice more to create three Hot Chocolate “Nutella” French Toast Sandwiches.
