Best Vegan French Toast Recipe
French Toast has always been and still is one of my absolute favorite Breakfast Recipes. That’s why I’ve already shared some easy French Toast Recipes here on my blog in the past. However, it was definitely time for a recipe makeover since I’ve changed a couple of things since then, turning my basic recipe into the BEST Vegan French Toast Recipe! Honestly, I’ve got you covered because this eggless French Toast is delicious and made with non-dairy milk, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, and gluten-free chickpea flour. It’s really super simple and only takes a few minutes to prepare, making it a perfect sweet breakfast that’s even easier than making pancakes!
Quick & Easy Vegan Breakfast
To be honest, I can’t count anymore how often I’ve made eggless French Toast, because it has definitely been that much, haha! Anyways, I think that this is positively proof that I‘m not lying when saying that I LOVE it! Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of different variations, because there are so many possibilities for how to substitute eggs! Also, you can choose to either pan-fry your dipped bread slices or bake them in the oven. (Continue reading for details.)
How to substitute eggs
The first time I made Vegan French Toast, I used flaxseed-eggs instead of regular eggs and that worked well! However, I’ve discovered that it tastes even better to me when using mashed bananas as an egg substitute. Since so many of you often ask me what to use instead of bananas, I tried yet another version and used chickpea flour, which as it turns out, works perfectly too. But, to be honest, I really can’t understand people who don’t like bananas!
How to cook Vegan French Toast
If you pan-fry your dipped bread slices, then your Vegan French Toast will get soft and moist but will still be perfectly golden-browned with crispy edges. This is, to me, the BEST way! Anyways, if you prefer to bake your dipped bread as I did with my Apple Pie Roll-Ups, it’ll get crispy which kinda reminds me of a crisp cake crust. Another option is to cover your bread slices with shredded coconut flakes before baking. Then it’ll taste like coconut crispbread, which is also known as „rusk“.

I hope you’ll love this BEST Vegan French Toast Recipe! It is:
- Soft & moist
- With crispy edges
- Easy to make gluten-free (simply use gluten-free bread)
- The Perfect Vegan Breakfast or Dessert
- So delicious!
How to serve
This Vegan French Toast is delicious with all sorts of toppings! You can serve it the same way as you enjoy pancakes, waffles or crepes. I love spreading some non-dairy cream cheese (or coconut yogurt) and mashed raspberries on top of my slices. Then I stack up my slices and add some more raspberries, pomegranate and a drizzle of maple syrup on top which definitely is like having dessert for breakfast! Anyways, feel free to use any toppings and fruit you like.
