Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Now that it's fall, I have craving pumpkin all of the time.  And because I thought I might not be able to get canned pumpkin this season, I ordered a case of the organic Farmer's Market brand on Amazon.  We were planning on having french toast the other night but I kept thinking about pumpkin.  So I decided to make a pumpkin pie french toast.  I think it turned out great!  If I made it again, I would probably either half the "batter" or I would save half of it so I could have french toast two times in a week!  You can never have too much french toast.  You can also adjust the spices or just use pumpkin pie spice to simplify the recipe.

Pumpkin Pie French Toast
-1/2 container of silken tofu (I buy the Nasoya organic kind)
-1/2 cup of canned pumpkin
-1/2-3/4 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
-2 TBSP sweetner (sugar, agave, Organic Zero, whatever works for you)
-1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1/8-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-pinch of nutmeg
-pinch of ginger
-8 slices of bread (or more)

Put all of the ingredients in the food processor except for the bread.  Process until smooth.  Put the mixture in a pie plate.  I use a griddle to cook the french toast on but you can use a regular skillet.  I put a little oil on the griddle, coat the front and back of a slice of bread and then put it on the griddle.  When all bread is coated and on the griddle, I cook each side for about 5 minutes or until it looks browned on each side.  Top it off with a little powdered sugar and maple syrup.  I also had some swiss chard and Gimme Lean "sausage" with the french toast.


  1. Yummmmmmm, that sounds incredible! I'm defintiely going to have to try. You know, as weird as it may sound, I've never used silken tofu! Is it tricky at all? For some reason, I've been avoiding tofu and trying to keep it as a "last resort" sorta deal, but that sounds really delicious! Like the perfect Sunday Fall morning breakfast. :)

  2. Silken tofu is not hard at all! It's definitely for puddings, pies, dips, etc. It's best when it's put in the food processor. It's great for adding protein to smoothies too! :)
