MAKES: 3 servings (6 slices)
PREP TIME: 10 minutes


1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
1⁄3 cup chickpea flour
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
6 slices sourdough bread
4 tablespoons Earth Balance vegan butter, for frying
2 cups fresh mixed berries, for serving
2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar, for serving
extra maple syrup, for serving


Combine the non-dairy milk, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, and salt in a wide, shallow dish.

Place 2 slices of bread into the batter and allow the slices to sit in the batter while you heat up a non-stick pan over medium heat. Depending on the thickness and type of bread you’re using, you might want to soak for more or less time. The slices should be well coated on both sides but not overly soggy.

Once your pan is hot add 1 tablespoon of the vegan butter and coat most of the surface of the pan in an even layer.

Place 2 battered slices of the bread in the pan and cook on one side for approximately 3 minutes. Then flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. Continue frying 2 slices at a time if you’re making multiple servings.

Serve with maple syrup, fresh berries, and a dusting of confectioners sugar if desired.

So this was a really good batter, but I have to admit I was not a fan of using sourdough. Maybe I just didn't cook it enough, but the sour flavour did not go well with the other flavours

There's no way to make french toast without eggs, but is definitely a better option than consuming it. Congrats!!!

I made this yesterday–subbing kala namak for sea sal–and it was fabulous! I made it with the whole-grain sandwich bread on hand and it reminded me of the French toast of my childhood–great recipe! Thank you Chatelaine for bringing us this series!

Unsweetened milk and syrup to sweeten it up. 😂
