I can't even begin to explain how good these are, when I managed to finally nail this recipe I could not stop making it! They are not only delicious, but also super fun to make and a great kid-friendly recipe to get them involved. It's a very versatile recipe so you can load them up with different fillings every time.
½ cup (125ml) unsweetened soy or almond milk
1 tbsp plain flour
½ tbsp nutritional yeast
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp pure maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
8 slices white sandwich bread (can sub with wholemeal instead)
1 tbsp vegan butter
Vegan cream cheese + strawberries
Chocolate spread + banana
Peanut butter + roasted peanuts, crushed
Fresh fruit (banana, raspberries)
Icing sugar, to dust
Melted vegan chocolate or pure maple syrup, to drizzle
1 In a shallow dish, whisk together the milk, flour, nutritional yeast, cinnamon, maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt.
2 Cut the crusts off the bread (don't throw them out! I like to dip them in any remaining milk mixture and fry them up), then use a rolling pin to flatten out each slice. Spread and add your desired fillings along the bottom of the slice of bread then tightly roll up.
3 Melt vegan butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Dip each roll in the milk mixture to cover all sides. Drip off any excess, then place in the pan, seam-side down. Cook until golden brown all over.
4 To serve, stack the roll ups on each plate into a pile, then top with fresh fruit. Dust with icing sugar then drizzle with melted vegan chocolate or maple syrup.
