French toast is one of those things which seems impossible to make vegan. Can you get still have that eggy texture? Can you make French toast without using dairy products?

Spoiler alert: you CAN.

My vegan French toast is the perfect sweet and healthy breakfast. Meaning it is totally acceptable to enjoy every day of the week!

how to make vegan French toast

The main ingredient we are replacing in this recipe is eggs (which are not vegan). To recreate that thick eggy texture to our French toast batter, we are using ground flax seeds.

We’ll mix together ground flaxseeds with dairy-free milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract, to form a tasty French toast batter. Then we’ll dunk in some bread and fry until golden and crisp!

The best thing about French toast – all the tasty toppings! Here’s a few ways to top your French toast:

  1. Keep it classic with a little maple syrup and vegan butter.
  2. Serve with fresh berries, jam, and yogurt.
  3. Caramelise some bananas and serve with homemade pistachio almond butter – swoon!
  4. For the serious chocoholics: drizzle with melted dark chocolate and a sprinkle of cacao nibs. And some brownie hunks on top, because why not?

Can I make this recipe using any milk?

Can I prepare French toast ahead of time?

French toast is best prepared and enjoyed immediately.

Can I make naturally-sweetened French toast?

Yes, simply swap the granulated sugar for coconut or date sugar. And don’t forget to serve with maple syrup!
