I had this recipe for vegan french toast up on my Instagram feed from a few years ago, before I had my blog website! As I’ve been in the process of moving some of my “informal recipes” over from Instagram captions to this very website, I realized that french toast is a classic. French toast is a classic and it needs to live on my website, so today, I’m bringing you a vegan Oat Milk French Toast recipe. It’s a spin on my original french toast recipe, but with a 2019 twist ft. oat milk. This recipe is vegan, gluten free, oil free, refined sugar free, nut free and whole food plant based.
This recipe really came together because I only had oat milk in my fridge one morning. But then, I realized that the oat milk flavour actually added to the french toast recipe. Hear me out–because I can’t eat gluten, I use gluten-free bread of course, but one could argue that at least 80% of french toast is all about the bread. So, I kind of felt like the oat milk added a sort of bread-y flavour to the recipe. Sounds weird, but trust me, it works really well! It’s also super creamy when compared to other vegan milk alternatives, which makes for a much more egg-like batter with the other ingredients.
If I’m being super honest, what really makes french toast taste like french toast to me is the combo of cinnamon and maple syrup to top, so don’t forget to do a little drizzle drazzle to top! Warmed berries also go deliciously with french toast 🙂
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and don’t forget to give your batter time to thicken up! Oh and as per standard french toast recipes, slightly stale bread works really well, so if you’ve got some about-to-go-bad bread, this is the perfect recipe to repurpose!
In a large bowl, whisk together all your ingredients (except bread of course!)
Allow this mixture to thicken for at 8-10 minutes, and then give it another quick whisk. This will allow the flax seed to expand and the mixture to thicken slightly.
Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat, making sure it’s sizzling and ready to go. You can use a little bit of oil of choice or vegan butter if preferred, but if using a good nonstick pan, can omit.
Soak each side of the bread into the mixture for about 30-40 seconds on each side, then cook on the pan for about 2-3 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Be patient before flipping, and allow each side to really firm up.
Before moving onto the next slice, give the dipping mixture a quick whisk.
I used Simple Kneads bread for this, but Cocobakes sourdough works REALLY well for this too.
