Vegan French Toast

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

What Is French Toast?

French toast in the traditional sense is bread slices that are dipped in egg and milk then fried. My homemade French toast is made without eggs and milk. tastes satisfying and delicious without animal products.

Vegan French Toast

This easy  French toast 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. I used gluten-free vegan bread that I purchased locally, BFree Gluten-Free Vegan Sandwich Bread is a great brand.

How To Make Vegan French Toast

  1. First, toast bread slices and set aside.
  2. Prepare the strawberry sauce, place strawberries in a saucepan along with maple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla and bring to boil over medium heat, reduce to simmer about 3 minutes, crushing some of the strawberries to thicken the sauce. Turn off heat and set aside. 
  3. Blend almond milk, banana, cornstarch, vanilla, salt and pour the batter 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.

    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.
