Cashew Cinnamon Pear French Toast

This vegan French toast is one of the best ones I have made yet. You can add variety to this by using different fruit based on the season. For example, in the fall or winter you may choose to use pears, apples and bananas and in the spring or summer top with a variety of fresh berries.
