Stuffed Tortilla Cheesecake French Toast

This is the best breakfast, dessert, or snack ever! Stuffed with healthy dark chocolate, strawberries, bananas, and vegan cream cheese, you legit can’t go wrong.

Serves 6

6 ounces vegan cream cheese, room temperature

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

6 (8-inch) flour tortillas

6 large strawberries, sliced

2 bananas, sliced

1/2 bar vegan dark chocolate or 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Whipped vegan butter, as needed

1/4 cup almond milk

2 flax eggs

Coconut sugar, to sprinkle

In a large bowl whip together the cream cheese, syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla unti combined. Spread 1 tablespoon (or more) of the cream cheese filling evenly over each tortilla. Place strawberry and banana slices over the cream cheese and top with chocolate pieces.

Roll tortillas tightly, starting with the edge closest to you until closed. The cream cheese will keep them together.

Melt some butter in a skillet over medium heat. Mix milk with the flax eggs. Working with 2 stuffed tortillas at a time, roll each in the egg wash then place in the hot skillet. Cook on each side for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat process with remaining stuffed tortillas.

To serve, sprinkle with coconut sugar and top with any remaining cream cheese filling, syrup, strawberries, or chocolate. Enjoy!

Note: You can prep the stuffed tortillas the night before to have them ready for breakfast. Just be sure to wrap them individually in plastic wrap to keep them from sticking together. You can also substitute the vegan cream cheese with Coconut Whipped Cream, and the almond milk with coconut milk or milk of choice.

Store cooked tortilla French toasts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This will give them that flakey, pastry-like texture. Once cooked they don’t need to be individually wrapped as they won’t stick together.

KID HELP

  • Are you ready to get a little messy? When you have the egg wash ready, let your child roll each tortilla into it. Then they hand it to you so you can start the cooking process. It’s fun to do this as a team.
  • When the tortillas are done cooking and are cool to touch, let them sprinkle on the coconut sugar.
  • Have your kid place the strawberries and extra cream cheese on top.
  • Always have your kids help set the table or counter, and help with cleanup.
