French toast was my absolute favorite breakfast food growing up and still is to this day. With its crispy edges and custardy center covered with a sweet drizzle of maple syrup…man, I am drooling just thinking about it. We recently also heard french toast being referred to as pan-fried bread pudding and we couldn’t agree more! It’s like having dessert for breakfast 😉

This easy 6-ingredient vegan french toast is a classic comfort breakfast taken for the twist– an addition of protein-rich chickpea flour and 100% plant-based ingredients–tastier and healthier than the traditional recipe!

I’m sure you can tell that I am a sucker for vegan french toast by the few other variations already on the blog —Banana French Toast, Avocado French Toast, and our stellar Crusted Banana Bread French Toast— but we were lacking was a classic vegan french toast, plain and simple…or should I say sweet and simple 😉

Maple syrup AND powdered sugar? I know I know, sugar overload but hey, when I make my favorite breakfast food, I like to go all out. Plus, this is how my mom used to serve our french toast for us as kids so I thought I would share my favorite way to enjoy it 🙂

Classic Vegan French Toast {6-Ingredients}


  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Description

An easy 6-ingredient vegan french toast! The classic comfort breakfast has taken a twist with the addition of protein-rich chickpea flour and 100% plant-based ingredients–tastier and healthier than the traditional recipe!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 heaping cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 810 thick slices day-old/stale bread*

Toppings of choice, such as

  • Maple syrup
  • Organic powdered sugar
  • Fresh fruit

Instructions

  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together (except for the bread) until smooth. If you would like, you can blend it all in a high-speed blender as well. Pour the batter into a wide and shallow dish.
  2. Preheat a large pan or a griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with coconut oil or spray. We attempted to cook the french toast without oil but had the best results using it.
  3. Dip each slice of bread in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side and then place onto the heated griddle. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Continue until you have cooked all of the french toast.
  4. Serve with toppings of choice. We like to serve our vegan french toast with maple syrup, a touch of powdered sugar, and fresh strawberries.

Notes

  • It is important to use bread that is both sturdy and thick–we aim for a thickness of 3/4-1″. We like to use bread that is a few days old so that it has dried out and hardened up a bit. We recommend avoiding sandwich bread. This will ensure that your french toast does not get soggy or break apart!
  • If you only have fresh bread, you can dry it out in the oven at 300°F on a wire rack for about 8 minutes each side.
  • If you are planning ahead, you can place bread pieces on a wire rack and just let the pieces sit out overnight to dry out.
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes

  2. Oh wow, this looks great! I make a very similar French toast recipe, except I use Dave’s Killer Bread slices and I don’t use chickpea flour. I can imagine that the chickpea flour would make a nice egg substitute with the almond milk and really add to texture, so I definitely have to try using it soon!

    Okay I have to be honest I didn’t totally follow the recipe, I used 1 tsp of molasses as the sweetener, added about a teaspoon (heaping maybe) of ground flax seed, made it in a non stick so it was oil free and ate with applesauce, tasted great!
