Peanut Butter French Toast Dippers With Maple Pecan Dipping Sauce [Vegan]



For the Peanut Butter French Toast:

  • Day-old French baguettes
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk
  • Oil, for frying
  • Powdered sugar, as garnish (optional)

For the Peanut Butter Maple Pecan Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans, roasted or toasted


  1. To make the french toast, first cut the baguette on the bias into slices 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick.
  2. Mix together flour, powdered peanut butter, cinnamon, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl. Mix in milk and stir until well combined. The consistency should be that of a thin pancake batter.
  3. Add enough oil to equal 1/2-inch deep and preheat oil to 350°F.
  4. Line a platter or plate with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  5. Dip slice of baguette into the batter and remove excess batter.
  6. Carefully add battered bread to the oil and fry until golden, flip and repeat with the other side. Carefully remove from pan and transfer to lined platter.
  7. Repeat with remaining slices until all batter is used.
  8. Garnish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar if desired.
  9. To make the dipping sauce, stir together maple syrup and peanut butter until well combined. Fold in pecans. (If you are using raw pecans, chop them, then lightly toast them in a dry pan. This process doesn’t take long, so be careful not to burn your nuts).
  10. Serve on a plate with a small dish for dipping. Alternatively, you can serve traditionally with the dipping sauce drizzled all over the top.
