Description

Ready in just two minutes, this french toast in a mug is sweetened with ripe banana and easy to make vegan! It’s a quick weekday breakfast that you can prep ahead of time and microwave in the morning!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 thick slice of day old bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, powdered sugar, banana slices

For vegan french toast in a mug:

  • 1/2 tablespoon vegan buttery spread
  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk alternative (I use almond milk or coconut milk beverage)
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 thick slice of day old bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, powdered sugar, banana slices

Instructions

  1. Grease a microwave-safe 12-ounce mug using butter.
  2. In a small-medium mixing bowl, add mashed banana, milk, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and pinch of salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Add bread pieces to the mug to fill all the way up to the top.
  4. Pour liquid mixture over the bread and mix with a spoon until all pieces are coated.
  5. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds, or until the mixture is solid and egg is no longer runny, or a thermometer inserted in the middle reads 160 degrees F. Let sit for 60 seconds before serving.
  6. Optional: top with powdered sugar, banana slices, and maple syrup.

For vegan french toast in a mug:

  1. Grease a microwave-safe 12-ounce mug using vegan buttery spread.
  2. In a small-medium mixing bowl, add mashed banana, non-dairy milk alternative, ground flaxseed, vanilla, cinnamon, and pinch of salt and stir to combine. Let sit in the refrigerator until thickened, about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add bread cubes to the mug to fill all the way up to the top.
  4. Pour liquid mixture over the bread and mix with a spoon until all pieces are coated.
  5. Microwave on high for 60 seconds, or until the mixture is solid. Let sit for 30-60 seconds before serving.
  6. Optional: top with powdered sugar, banana slices, and maple syrup.

Notes

  1. If you don’t have day-old bread to use, you can dry your bread in the oven. Preheat to 285 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack over top. Place slices of bread on top of the wire rack and bake for 12-15 minutes. Bread should not be browned but should be crispy.
  2. To save dishes, make the entire recipe in the mug! Add wet ingredients first and stir to combine. Add bread pieces and stir to coat with the liquid.
  3. To make ahead of time, toss bread and liquid mixture in a mug, cover with plastic wrap, and store in the refrigerator overnight. Simply remove in the morning and pop it in the microwave to cook! You can also cook ahead of time and store in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the morning. Reheating does dry out the bread slightly so reheat for 30 seconds at a time to avoid over-reheating.
