1 ½ cups organic soy, cashew, or almond milk
2 tablespoons ground sesame and/or flax seeds
3-4 dates pitted, cut in half
2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour, arrowroot, or other whole grain flour
½ teaspoon vanilla or maple flavoring
½ teaspoon orange zest (optional)
¼ teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon lecithin granules (optional)
6 slices whole grain bread
Blend first 5 ingredients until very smooth, adding milk as needed to make like “pancake batter”.
Add flavorings (and lecithin), blend briefly again. Pour into a shallow dish/bowl.
Dip bread slices into batter, flipping to coat both sides well and allowing it to soak in, about 10-15 seconds.
Brown both sides in an oiled skillet. If baking in preheated oven at 475 degrees F. then place battered bread on a hot baking pan that has nonstick spray on it.
Bake 5-7 minutes until bottoms are golden brown. Flip and bake 2-3 min. more.
