Vegan French Toast

Oh. My. Word.

I know, vegan french toast!! Can it get any better than this! I don’t think so.

This is such a revelation to me, turning vegan I thought breakfasts like this, accompanied by a healthy (or unhealthy…) drizzle of maple syrup were a thing of the past. To be honest, it would probably be better for me if they were because then I wouldn’t be tempted to eat them all the time!

Vegan French Toast

Total time: 35 Minutes
  • 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 2 Tsp Maple Syrup
  • 250ml Soya Milk
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Slices Bread
  1. Mix together your chia seeds, maple syrup, soya milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a wide bowl, then leave to "set" in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  1. Oil and heat a frying pan.
  1. Dip the bread in the chia seed mixture on each side (only for a few seconds, don't let it get too soggy).
  1. Fry the bread for 2-3 minutes on each side, until turning golden. (Be careful to move the bread around the pan, or it will begin to stick).
  1. Repeat the process until all the bread has been fried.
  1. Arrange your french toast on a plate, top with maple syrup, strawberries and icing sugar (or any toppings you fancy) and enjoy!

I achieved this vegan French toast by mixing chia seeds, soya milk, cinnamon and maple syrup, then dipping bread in this mixture and frying it for a few minutes on each side. The chia seeds and milk combine to make a gooey egg-like mixture, which means you can achieve gloriously tasty French toast, without the need for eggs! Adding a little cinnamon and maple syrup also flavours the bread, and adds a little more colour to it. I then went on to cover the French toast in icing sugar, maple syrup and strawberries, which is my perfect mixture of toppings, however you can try any toppings you like!

This recipe does take a little time as you have to let the chia seed and milk mixture sit for around 10 minutes in order for the chia seeds to “activate” and become more of an “eggy” mixture over a liquid. However, once you start frying your bread you only need to dip the bread lightly on each side in the mixture, rather than soaking it, so it doesn’t take up much time at all.

I found this amount of ingredients was enough for around 2 people, so whilst I did share this plate with my boyfriend, I would recommend making more if there’s two very hungry people to feed! I hope you enjoy this recipe if you make it – do let me know what toppings you chose to put on your delicious vegan French toast! Use the #susiechef on Instagram to show me how yours turned out, I’d love to see! 

Yield: Enough for 1-2 people
Cooking Directions

* Top Tip * Turn your oven on to a low setting, then as you could each slice of bread place it on the plate and transfer to the oven to keep warm as you cook the other slices.
