vegan french toast



  • 1 can organic coconut milk (13 fl. oz)
  • 1 1/2 cups soy, almond or hemp milk
  • 3 TB garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 TB cornstarch
  • olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 loaf of italian bread, sliced (sandwich bread will work too—if you use it, though, skip the overnight soaking and dunk the bread into the mixture for 5 minutes or less before browning in a pan)
  • Optional toppings: earth balance, powdered sugar, maple syrup, agave, nutritional yeast


  1. If using an italian loaf of bread, slice into 1 to 1.5-inch thick slices and leave out to dry during the day. The dry bread will soak up the coconut mixture better than fresh bread.
  2. Before bed, empty the entire can of coconut milk into a medium-sized bowl. Whisk until well emulsified. Add the soymilk, garbanzo bean flour and cornstarch and stir until the ingredients have blended together. Empty the mixture into a large glass pyrex dish, enough for all of the bread pieces to fit. Dunk the bread in, making sure all pieces are well-covered with the mixture, cover with saran wrap and place into the refrigerator.
  3. In the morning, heat 2-3 TB of olive oil or canola oil in a large flat saute pan or griddle over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the slices of french toast and saute for 10 minutes. Flip and saute the other side for 10 minutes more. Dial up the heat to medium-high and flip again, for 5 minutes more on each side or until a nice browning has been achieved.
  4. Toppings: If you like sweet french toast, cover in earth balance, powdered sugar and pure maple syrup. If you like a more savory french toast, cover in earth balance, a touch of powdered sugar and some nutritional yeast.
