This is a great recipe for gluten-free, plant based French Toast (you likely won't even notice the difference!).

French toast is a classic breakfast but it’s a challenging dish for cooks who are trying to make plant-based, gluten-free meals. Breakfast in general is difficult if you’re avoiding animal products.
  • 1 1⁄4 cups non-dairy milk
  • 3⁄4 cup organic raw almond butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, plus more to serve
  • 1⁄4 cup plus 1 tablespoon gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 8 slices gluten-free bread
  • 1⁄4 cup pecans, chopped
  • Maple syrup (for serving)
  1. In a large shallow dish, combine the non-dairy milk, almond butter, 1/3 cup maple syrup, flour, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and salt.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter and heat until it sizzles.

  3. Dip the bread into the almond butter mixture, one slice a time, and let it soak briefly, for 10 to 15 seconds.

  4. Fry the bread slices, in batches, for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown, adding more vegan butter to the skillet as necessary.

  5. Serve sprinkled with pecans and drizzled with maple syrup.
