French toast made without eggs or butter? That’s right. Our vegan French toast is every bit soft and satisfying as its classic counterpart. Top off a fresh stack with coconut whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and sliced almonds for an extra decadent breakfast.

Vegan French Toast

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time:

Ingredients

For the French toast
1 medium banana
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon spelt flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
8 slices day old bread
Olive oil or coconut oil

To serve
Coconut whipped cream
Diced strawberries
Sliced almonds
Maple syrup

Instructions

Place banana, maple syrup, spelt flour, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, almond milk, almond butter, and nutritional yeast in a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Pour mixture into a wide, shallow bowl or baking dish. Place bread in the mixture and flip to make sure all sides are evenly coated.

Melt 1 tablespoon olive or coconut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add bread slices to skillet in a single layer and cook for a few minutes until golden brown, then flip and brown other side. The sugars will caramelize and form a beautiful crust on the bread. Repeat with the remaining slices.

Serve topped with coconut whipped cream, strawberries, almonds, and maple syrup, if desired.
