However you make your french toast….. and there are vegan ways to make it! You still generally have to pour some sugar on it in some form….. or you think you do. I think I do. I know I’d like to. But I try to limit the amount of maple syrup that I pour, and the amount of honey that my son pours over the french toast. Or pancakes. Or hot cereal, OR whatever you might like to pour sweet gooey stuff on.
Well, this blueberry sauce idea is indeed sweet but it dilutes the maple syrup and adds some vitamins, anti-oxidants, and fiber. Now this terrific treat might sound like something you could only do on weekends, but there’s no cooking involved and it was just a flick of the blender switch, so this is worth doing any morning, for hot cereal, leftover pancakes or french toast.
I placed 1 cup of blueberries in the blender and added 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup.
That may still sound like a lot of maple syrup but this makes enough for from 4 – 6 people and so that means the maple syrup content is really only 1/3 – 1/2 a tablespoon per person. Not to mention the additional nutrition of the whole blueberries. Well, they WERE whole blueberries when I put them in. I must confess that this concoction goes quickly from the lovely purple you see to the left to a sort of brown-ish with dark flecks of blueberry skin in it. It also congeals a bit, so it must be poured slowly or you will get a huge glop of it on your french toast, or pancakes or hot cereal or face.
Now if you are a more measured person like Mr. Bigg Sis, OR are the second one to pour, as was Mr. Bigg Sis, then your french toast will look like this with the blueberry sauce on it…
But, I think the sloppy version picture looks much more tasty :-)
Well, use your imagination on the tasty looking part. It really was good. If you prefer a thinner consistency you could add a little water or nut milk, but the thickness was still wet and completely satisfied the need for moisture and sweetness.
The leftovers do separate a bit, but a stir and a mash and it was ready for another go. If you want more ideas for less sweet, but still yummy toppers for pancakes and french toast, check these out.
