Today is the last day of Vegan Month of Food 2015, our assigned prompt is "Fusion Challenge." This stuck fear into my heart (ok, I'm being a little melodramatic), but it was pretty much the topic I've been dreading the most. When it comes to cooking I am anything but a natural. I thought for weeks on this one, asking around for suggestions and help. Nothing hit me just right. This morning on the ride back from Key West, the other happy vegan and I were talking. I said again "Cooking doesn't inspire me, I'm a baker. I wish I could just do some baking." What followed next was stream of consciousness ramblings including something about "I love sweet and savory together so much...!" blah blah blah.... and here we are.
Challenge accepted, challenge met. French toast chocolate chip cookies.
I do not have a recipe for you, understand that I used my recipe from my professional line. I'm just not up to giving those recipes away. But, also understand you can do this with your own recipe. Add cinnamon.... lots of it. Use maple syrup. The real deal, and be generous as well. Adjust your dry ingredients accordingly for any added liquid you may use (maple syrup). I mixed in coconut bacon too. A lot of that as well, but I think it could've used even more in the recipe. Although the ones in my video do not have an icing on top, I think a vegan "bacon" icing, or a maple icing (or a maple "bacon" icing) would be divine. These were a spur of the moment inspiration of mine, and I didn't really have time to frost them allowing the icing to set up properly.
These are so good, I'm going to do a little more research and development and I think I'm going to add these to my professional line.
See you maybe in 2016 for Month of Food, I hope you've enjoyed my posts/videos, as well as all the other great bloggers and vloggers. Thank you for checking things out. I'll do my best to keep going with videos occasionally as well, and of course my semi-regular posts on the blog.
Happy, healthy vegan living to you all.
