French Toast Frenzy

We've been in a little bit of a french toast frenzy these days. Perhaps its the weather and needing to warm ourselves with a special breakfast. Okay, that doesn't really explain having them for dinner, does it?
Still, we've been trying them all sorts of ways:

Traditional (well, not really "traditional" since they are without eggs and using spelt bread - but you get the picture):

Cinnamon Swirl style...MMMMmmmmm! (Yummy, although maybe a bit too sweet depending on your mood):

Or maybe the all time favorite: try it as a kebab! Even scary dragons love them!

These also make wonderful bring-your-french-toast-anywhere snacks and are perfect for late mornings reading in bed. (Our favorite way to spend a morning)

French Toast Kebabs (or just plain easy vegan french toast if you cut out the last step.
6 slices of the bread of your choice
1 ½ cups of soy or almond milk
1 T. flour
½ tsp Ener-G egg replacer
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sugar or agave
oil for cooking
bamboo skewers
maple syrup for dipping

Whisk the milk, flour, egg replacer, cinnamon and sugar together in a shallow bowl.
Heat oil in a pan over low-medium flame.
One at a time, dip bread into the milk mixture for 2 seconds on each side. Transfer to pan and let cook on each side for until browned, about 5 minutes.
Remove form pan and let cool slightly. Then cut each piece into 6-8 smaller pieces using a knife or small cookie cutters to make shapes. Place French toast pieces onto a bamboo skewer. Serve with maple syrup in a small container for dipping.
