Inspired by a recipe from *The Jazzy Vegetarian*


  • 2 cups raw unsalted cashews
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure maple extract*
  • 9 slices whole wheat or whole grain bread
  • coconut oil spray**
  • pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. Add the cashews, water, nutmeg, cinnamon, and pure maple extract into the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. (Mixture will still be slightly chunky from the cashews)
  2. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish, large enough to allow for the dipping of the bread.
  3. Dip both sides of the bread slices into the mixture, then place on a single layer in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Pour any remaining cashew mixture over the bread and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat a skillet over medium high heat.
  6. Spray each side of the bread slices with coconut oil spray and to the skillet and cook each side 4-5 minutes, until both sides are golden brown.
  7. Keep the French toast warm either in the oven at 250° or on a plate covered in aluminum foil.
  8. Continue the process until all the bread has been cooked.
  9. Drizzle the French toast with the maple syrup just before serving.
