Hot Chocolate French Toast, a breakfast mashup that is decadent and perfect for your sweet tooth, but made with better for you ingredients. Vegan, gluten free, and easy to make!


  • 3/4 cup oat milk, or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 12 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (cornstarch can work as a sub)
  • 45 slices of gluten-free breadpreferably a little on the drier side*

serve with


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all your ingredients (except bread of course!)
  2. Next, 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Before moving onto the next slice, give the dipping mixture a quick whisk.
  6. Serve with toppings as desired.


Drier bread will absorb the batter a little bit more easily.
