You won’t miss the eggs with this easy and delicious vegan French toast. It’s crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and makes the perfect breakfast.



  1. Add the chickpea flour (or all purpose flour if you’re using) to a shallow bowl and add just a dash of soy milk and mix in until smooth. Then add the rest of the soy milk.
  2. Add the nutritional yeast, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt and whisk together.
  3. Heat up a frying pan with some coconut oil.
  4. Soak a slice of bread in the batter for a few seconds on each side, and then place onto the frying pan to cook until browned on each side.
  5. Serve as is or drizzled with syrup or jam and topped with some vegan whipped cream.


*If you have black salt aka kala namak on hand then you can use half black salt and half regular salt. Black salt adds more ‘eggy’ flavor to recipes.

*I found the coconut oil to be very helpful in getting the outsides nice and browned and the most similar to ‘regular’ French toast. I added a bit more coconut oil (around one teaspoon) with every slice of french toast.

*I used a sourdough bread that was a little stale. Cut thickly it made the perfect kind of slices for making french toast. You will definitely get the best results if you choose a sturdy kind of bread (not soft sandwich bread) that you can slice thickly, and it’s also ideal if it’s a little on the stale side rather than ultra fresh.

*Nutritional Information is for one slice of French Toast, served as is, no additional toppings.
