Avocado French Toast — sounds a little whacky, right? Rest assured, when sweet meets savory, this classic breakfast is transformed into something magical.


Cashew Butter Batter

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons raw cashew butter
  • 2 large medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice)

Spicy Maple Syrup

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 12 tablespoons hot sauce (we used Yellow Bird)

French Toast

  • 6 medium slices of sourdough bread*
  • Vegan cream cheese (we used Miyoko’s)
  • 23 avocados, sliced
  • Fresh or dried chives
  • Smoked paprika


  1. Add all of the batter ingredients into a high-speed blender and run until smooth. Pour into a wide bowl (at least wider than the bread you are using), and place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to thicken.
  2. In the meantime, whisk together the maple syrup and hot sauce in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Once the batter has thickened, prepare a medium nonstick pan or a griddle over medium heat. Take a piece of the bread and soak each side in the batter for 15-30 seconds, the longer the better! Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until dry and golden brown. Continue until you have used all of the batter or bread up.
  4. Cool the french toast a bit, then generously smear on some vegan cream cheese. Layer on the avocado slices, then top with chives, smoked paprika and desired amount of spicy maple syrup.


  • You can use a break of choice, but try to be sure it is dry! If the bread is too moist, the french toast will end up soggy.
  • Nutrition facts takes into consideration 1/2 tablespoon of cream cheese per slice of french toast.
