• Vegan French Toast Recipe

    Easy homemade Vegan French Toast that’ll make your mouth water! Using only whole food ingredients with a natural sweetness from banana and maple. 


    What you’ll need to make Vegan French Toast

    • soft bread slices:

    Make sure they’re about 1-inch thickness (about 2.5 cm), I like to use a vegan friendly brioche style loaf.

    • ripe banana:

    If your banana isn’t spotty and ripe yet, place it in the oven at 160C (320F) for 20-25 minutes until blackened and soft. To create the delicious sweetness and banana flavour in this vegan French toast it’s important to use a ripe banana!

    • maple syrup:

    Swap out for agave or coconut syrup, if that’s more your thing!

    • cinnamon:

    I love the subtle cinnamon flavour in pretty much every sweet breakfast, but feel free to leave this out.

    • plant milk:

    You can use any non-dairy milk that you would use regularly. I’ve personally opted for soya, but you can also use almond, rice, oat and Co. Go for unsweetened, as we already have a lot of sweetness from the banana and maple in this recipe.

    • gram flour:

    This is often also called ‘chickpea flour’, I use the one from Grape Tree

    • salt:

    Don’t worry, we’re not going for salty here, but to balance out the full flavour of the vegan French toast, we need to add a tiny bit of salt to the batter. 

    • coconut oil:

    This is purely needed for frying our French toast. If you don’t have any at home or don’t like coconut, you can also use rapeseed or any other flavour-neutral alternative that’s suitable for frying.

    To serve:

    • maple syrup
    • dairy-free yogurt
    • fresh or stewed berries
    • banana chips

    This recipe is:

    • 100% vegan
    • easy to follow
    • egg-free
    • dairy-free
    • super soft and fluffy
    • simple delicious for your vegan brunch

    Easy Vegan French Toast recipe that’ll make your mouth water! Using only whole food ingredients with a natural sweetness from banana & maple.


    • 4 thick slices of soft bread (about 1-inch [2.5cm] thickness)
    • 1 ripe banana
    • 1 tbsp maple syrup
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 180ml plant milk
    • 50g gram flour (chickpea flour)
    • a pinch of salt
    • Coconut oil for frying

    To serve:

    • a drizzle of maple syrup
    • a dollop of dairy-free yogurt
    • fresh berries to top 
    • a handful of banana chips for a crunch


    1. Place the ripe banana into a food processor alongside the maple syrup, cinnamon and plant milk and process until smooth.
    2. Place the chickpea flour in a shallow bowl and stir through a pinch of salt, then pour the banana mix into the middle and whisk everything together into a smooth batter.
    3. Place your bread slices into the mix, allowing to sit and soak for 1 minute on each side. In the meantime heat a little coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
    4. Allow for any excess batter to drip off your slices and place them into the hot pan. Fry them for 3-4 minutes without moving the toast, then carefully flip and cook on the second side for another 3-4 minutes. Continue to cook and flip regularly until your french toast is golden on both sides.
    5. Serve your vegan french toast with a drizzle of maple syrup, a dollop of vegan yogurt, fresh or stewed berries, and a few banana chips on top for an extra crunch.
