Ingredients
  

  • 8 slices Bread Sturdy
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Just Egg
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Vegan Butter

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • Preheat a large pan or a griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with vegan butter, even if it's its to keep the golden crust that develops on the bread intact when turning it.
  • 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.
  • Serve with toppings of choice. We like to serve our vegan french toast with maple syrup, a touch of powdered sugar, and fresh berries.

Notes

MAKE IT GLUTEN-FREE: Simply use a loaf of gluten-free bread.
*BREAD NOTES: It is important to use bread that is both sturdy and thick like French loaf or brioche. We aim for a thickness of 3/4-1″ and that is a few days old so that it has dried out and hardened up a bit. Avoid sandwich bread to ensure that your french toast does not get soggy or break apart!
**GRIDDLE: If you're using a griddle set it to 350 °F (177 °C)
***VEGAN BUTTER: You can use coconut oil as a substitute to vegan butter just add a bit more coconut oil (around one teaspoon) with every slice of french toast.
****FREEZING: Leftover 'custard' will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days. It does thicken up and go a little jelly-like. Just add a little milk, put the lid on and give it a good shake or a quick whisk until it's smooth again and the consistency it was originally.
