Servings: 4 servings
- 8 slices of thick-cut bread (preferably day-old bread)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk of your choice)
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional, for a cheesy flavor)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or preferred sweetener
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Coconut oil or vegan butter, for frying
- Fresh berries
- Sliced bananas
- Maple syrup
- Vegan whipped cream
- Chopped nuts
- In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk together the unsweetened almond milk, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, nutritional yeast (if using), maple syrup, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until well combined. This mixture serves as the vegan egg replacement.
- Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a little coconut oil or vegan butter to coat the surface.
- Dip each slice of bread into the almond milk mixture, ensuring both sides are coated, but do not soak the bread excessively.
- Place the soaked bread slices on the hot skillet and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they turn golden brown and slightly crispy.
- Remove the cooked vegan French toast from the skillet and keep it warm while you cook the remaining slices.
- Serve the vegan French toast with your preferred toppings, such as fresh berries, sliced bananas, a drizzle of maple syrup, vegan whipped cream, or chopped nuts.
