Vegan French Toast


Today I decided to change breakfast up and make a special treat for Daevyd. Yummy vegan French toast with strawberry sauce. This is a great, filling breakfast recipe and a great way to use day-old bread.

This recipe is heart healthy, the strawberry sauce is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. I toasted the bread slices lightly before dipping into the batter.

How To Make Vegan French Toast

It is so easy to make vegan French toast and it is so delicious. First, toast bread slices and set aside, then blend almond milk, banana, cornstarch, vanilla and pour mix into a shallow dish.  Dip bread into the mix and coat each side, cook on a heated griddle or skillet on both sides until golden brown.

Serve his French toast with strawberry sauce. The toasts were perfect without eggs, moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. Ripe banana plus the strawberry sauce topped with coconut whipped cream added the perfect sweetness as well. For those who are on a *gluten-free diet, this bread is great!

    I’m so glad I found your site today, Michelle. Your recipes look fabulous and I look forward to trying them!

    I haven’t found a good vegan, GF bread. Could you recommend a brand, or do you bake your own?

      Hello Carol, welcome to my website and I hope you will enjoy my recipes. I don’t get the time to bake my own anymore, I do have a recipe in my cookbook, I buy lots of La Tortilla Factory Wraps and my husband loves Schar Gluten Free Multigrain Bread (not sure if the sugar is GMO or vegan) and I like Food For Life Brown Rice Bread toasted.

    French toast is the kind of breakfast you make when you have a busy morning or if you’re feeling lazy. It’s so easy to make and the kids love it. I think this recipe is perfect! I’d love a vegan alternative to the usual French toast.
