In a medium saucepan, bring the juices to a boil. Add the pineapple, apple and orange peel and cook until the fruit is soft. Top with mint. Set aside the fruit compote.
Combine ground flax seeds, apple butter, soymilk, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a blender and mix until smooth. Transfer to a shallow bowl.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat and add canola oil. Dip both sides of the bread into the batter and transfer to the hot pan. Repeat for remaining slices. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
