Easy Vegan French Toast

With more and more people starting a vegan lifestyle or eating more plant-based, I thought I would share a beginner vegan recipe that is also very delicious. I normally eat whole foods (not the store) but it is okay to indulge every once in a while, especially when in doing so you are spreading the vegan message. Anyway, this french toast really satisfied my cravings and no animal products were necessary. Onto the recipe…

Serves: 2 | Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 2 slices of vegan friendly bread (french, multi-grain, etc. just check the label).
  • 2 tbsp. of ground flaxseed (for the flax egg).
  • 6 tbsp. of water (for the flax egg).
  • 1 tbsp. of cinnamon.
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla.
  • 1 tsp. of coconut sugar.
  • 1 tbsp. of agave or maple syrup.
  • 1 cup of almond milk or other plant-based milk.
  • 1 tbsp. of vegan butter or coconut oil.
  • 1 cup of your favorite fruit.


  • Mix together 2 tbsp. of flaxseed with 6 tbsp. of water to make a flax egg. Leave the mixture sitting for about 5 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk alternative, vanilla, syrup, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and lastly – the flax egg.
  • Dip the bread into the mixture.
  • In a skillet, heat up vegan butter. Then, place the bread in the skillet and cook for a few minutes on each side (until edges are golden brown).
  • Add desired toppings.


  • If you are avoiding non-fruit sugars, I suggest taking out the syrup and using a homemade bread.
  • If you don’t have coconut sugar, you can use cane sugar or omit it altogether.
  • Instead of using a flax egg, you can mash up a ripe banana and put that in the mixture. However, this can affect the texture.
  • If you want to make this an oil free recipe, you can bake the french toast and take away the vegan butter/cooking oil. Bake for 40 minutes at 350°F in a 9 x 13 baking dish.

I hope you enjoy this vegan recipe! Please let me know if you make this or what your favorite vegan breakfast recipe is.

    I gave this one a try today and I failed lol. The recipe is great and the flavor is amazing. I tried to substitute banana for the flax seed despite the warning about texture. I didn’t get the mixture quite right. My bread ended up being too soggy because my batter was too wet. I broiled the toast to get it to crisp up and it turned out ok. The bread wasn’t as soggy, but next time I’ll wait til I have more flax seed. Overall though a great recipe even after I messed up the actual cooking of the toast.

      I’m sorry it didn’t turn out how you expected! French toast can be hard in general to get right because it can be too soggy or too crunchy. Thank you for letting me know!

          That’s awesome! I’m glad you made it. Sometimes if the batter isn’t a good consistency, it helps to refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
