Delightful Vegan French Toast

By Peta  
A dreamy, simple, perfectly sweet french toast that’s completely vegan.

1-bowl, 30-minute vegan french toast made with wholesome, natural ingredients like almond milk, cinnamon and chia seeds

Servings: 5 slices


• 1 heaping Tbsp. chia seeds (ground into a fine meal so they’re undetectable)

• 1/2 Tbsp. agave nectar or maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

• 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any nondairy milk)

• 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

• 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

• 4-5 slices bread (it’s important to use a sturdy, rustic bread or it can turn out soggy/soft)


1. Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large, shallow bowl. Place in the fridge to activate for 10-20 minutes.

2. Preheat griddle to medium heat (~350 degrees F / 176 C) and grease with 1 Tbsp. vegan butter or coconut oil.

3. Dip each slice of bread in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side. If your bread is dry, leave it in a little longer. If you’re using sandwich bread, it should only need 25-30 seconds total to soak.

4. Place on griddle and cook until golden brown on the underside. Carefully flip and cook until the other side is golden brown as well: 3-4 minutes.

5. Top with desired toppings: I used coconut whipped cream, strawberries, bananas and maple syrup.


1. Select a good quality brand of full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream.

2. Chill can overnight in the refrigerator to harden (chilling in the freezer doesn’t work as well).

3. Scoop hardened coconut cream into a mixing bowl, leaving any clear liquid behind (reserve for smoothies etc.)

4. Whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer until light peaks form.

5. (Optional) sweeten with sifted powdered sugar or stevia to taste (liquid sweeteners can weigh it down).
