Description

This vegan French toast recipe is light, fluffy, and so delicious — it’s the perfect classic plant-based breakfast! This recipe has just 8 ingredients — aquafaba is the star of the show! — and uses no refined sugar and no chia seeds. Ready within 15 minutes, top with coconut whipped cream and fresh berries and enjoy!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 8 slices thick vegan bread, such as Brioche or Challah (GF as needed)
  • 1 cup (240 mL) dairy free milk (like oat milk or coconut milk from the can)
  • 1/3 cup (85 mL) aquafaba
  • 1/4 cup (56 g) dairy free yogurt or unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar, maple syrup, or granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or vegan butter (for the pan)
  • Toppings: fresh berries, coconut cream, maple syrup, cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the dairy free milk, aquafaba, dairy free yogurt, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.
  2. Dip one slice of bread into the mixture and let it soak for at least 2 minutes (longer if you’re using thick bread- up to 10 minutes). Then flip and allow the other side to soak. 
  3. While the bread is soaking, in a medium skillet or on a pancake griddle, heat the coconut oil or vegan butter on medium heat until melted.
  4. Place the soaking piece of bread onto the skillet and let cook for 2-3 minutes. If it needs longer to cook, give it another minute or two. Flip onto the other side and allow the bread to cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the bread from the skillet and place onto a plate. Repeat for the remaining slices.
  6. Serve with coconut cream, cinnamon, maple syrup, berries, or any of your favorite toppings!

Notes

Bread: I recommend using vegan brioche bread for the best results. 

Gluten free: I will update this post with the gluten free brioche bread version when it’s available! Stay tuned! You may also use vegan gluten free sandwich bread if you’d like.
