Ingredients
  • 1 loaf French Bread, cut into 1" slices
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 1/2 cups soy or oat milk
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • maple syrup, for topping
  • 1 cup fresh berries, for topping
Instructions
  1. Preheat a griddle to 350 F. Add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter or coconut oil to the griddle and let it melt. 

  2. In a blender combining chickpea flour, soy milk, vanilla, and cinnamon until the chickpea flour has dissolved completely. Pour into a shallow dish and place sliced bread in the batter so that one side of the bread is completely submerged. Allow the batter to soak into the bread, 15-20 seconds, flip, and soak for another 15 seconds.

  3. Once the griddle is preheated - it should sizzle with a drop of water - place soaked bread, 2-3 pieces at a time, onto the griddle. Cook about 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and speckled. Remove from heat and set aside. 

  4. Top with maple syrup, and fresh fruit and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Serving and Storing -The French Toast should be served immediately. If it sets too long, it will get cold and soggy.  Serve this French Toast as part of your Easter or Mother's Day brunch along with some vegan scrambled eggs and a Bloody Mary.

Recipe Tip - It's good for your bread to be a little bit stale. This helps the French Toast hold together when dipped in the custard. You can either buy French bread and let it sit for a day or two or lightly toast your bread before submerging it in the custard.

Variations - If you can't find chickpea flour at your grocery store, you can pick some up online. Otherwise, a flax egg works as well.
