Lemon “Ricotta” Strawberry Stuffed French Toast

My new little one is much too young to make me a mother’s day brunch this year but this easy variation on french toast stuffed with creamy vegan lemon ricotta and juicy fresh strawberries with a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating is a treat every mom will love!

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

4 slices One Degree Organics Sprouted Ancient Whole Wheat Bread

Filling:
3/4 cup Kite Hill Vegan Ricotta
3 tablespoons raw cane sugar
2 tsp lemon zest
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
8 to 10 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

Spread:
4 tablespoons coconut oil, solid
2 tablespoons raw cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

For the spread, combine the coconut oil, raw cane sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Then spread on one side of each slice of bread.

Place the bread, spread side down, on a parchment-covered baking sheet or plate. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine vegan ricotta, raw cane sugar, and lemon juice and zest to form a thick cream. Taste and adjust sweetness as desired.

Spread ricotta cream on each slice of bread. Add the sliced strawberries and then make a sandwich.

Warm a panini press and grill the sandwich for 2 to 3 minutes, until crispy, golden brown.

Enjoy!

  1. Wow, a new baby. May God richly bless you as you care for and teach this little one. Thanks for the above recipe, I will use vegan cream cheese as I do not have ricotta, I am sure it will be just as good. This my mother’s day breakfast for my husband.
