Vegan French Toast Recipe

Posted on August 18, 2011


Last week we visited the local food co-op.  I lucked up and and found lots of delicious half-priced day old bread from the local bakery.  I left the Ciabatta loaf on my kitchen counter for a couple of days until it was ready to transform into this delicious French Toast.

The toast was perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and sweet in the middle.  When I took the first bite, I smiled and told my family it tasted like Christmas morning.

French Toast

  • Ciabatta Loaf, a few days old – stale is better
  • 3/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk, or plant milk of your choice
  • 3/4 Cup Silk Soy Creamer
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Allspice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cardamon
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/4 Cup Bob’s Gluten Free Garbanzo and Fava Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Earth Balance Buttery Spread

Slice stale bread into 1″ pieces.

Pour milk, creamer, spices and vanilla into a bowl wide enough for dipping bread.  Mix in the cornstarch and whisk until fully incorporated.  Add the flour and whisk again until smooth.


Heat griddle or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add butter.

Prepare toast in batches.  Dip as many bread slices that will fit in your pan for several seconds, allowing them to soak up the mixture.  Place on griddle and cook toast until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

Serve immediately with syrup or agave and fresh fruit.
