Happy National Hot Cocoa Day! Yep, that's actually a day (look it up if you don't believe me). To celebrate I finally recorded my new vegan hot chocolate recipe, which I've been perfecting over the last few weeks. I've experimented with different nut milks and flavors and this one is the richest and tastiest yet! Plus, it's free of gluten, soy and sugar and you can use all bulk ingredients. Enjoy!

Healthy, Guilt-Free French Toast

 
Is it possible to make vegan french toast that is gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, salt-free and even oil-free? Absolutely! In fact, here are 3 recipes from different sources so you can choose one that sounds most appealing or based on ingredients you have on hand - you could even mix and match ingredients from each recipe. No matter how you do it you'll have a delicious breakfast in under 10 minutes and for less than $3 a serving.
 
I found this recipe while searching for a pasta and butternut squash dish. With a few modifications I made it vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, low in oil, and no added salt. It's a very hardy dish with flavors reminiscent of a dish you'd have for Thanksgiving, due to the thyme and nutmeg. You can play around with the seasonings to give it a taste suitable to your palette, but I think it's fantastic the way it is.
