A classic french toast recipe changed from the bottom – Learn how to make fluffy, delicious and protein-rich French Toast with no eggs and dairy!

 

With popularization of vegan food and development in culinary science and produce, almost any “classic” recipe can be veganized today. Although I am not searching for vegan “replacements” of many omnivore foods, I do miss some dishes on a vegan diet, like French Toast. Actually, I do not any more, because I realised how easy it is to make Vegan French Toast!

This is an easy recipe for which you will need only 6 simple ingredients you probably always have in your pantry if you are vegan or simply pursuing healthier diet. In the notes, I also provide information for possible replacements and variations of this recipe. However, if you want to really indulge your vegan French Toast, I advise you try this irresistable combination with caramelized bananas.

Let me know when you try it!

Notes:

*Use GF bread to make this recipe in a gluten-free version

** If you use sweetened almond milk, you can omit the sweetner later on the ingredient list. Also be careful about it if you want to make a recipe in savory version.

*** Can be substituted with coconut sugar or other sweetner of your choice. Omit if you want to make this recipe in a savory version.
