Fantastic French Toast

This recipe is great for a family breakfast or a small get together. Recipe from The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Gluten-Free Vegan Cookingby Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., CPT, and Beverly Lynn Bennett (Alpha Books, 2011).

Makes: 8 slices

  • 1 ½ cups vanilla almond milk, soy milk, or other nondairy milk
  • 3 tablespoon chickpea (garbanzo bean) flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 1 ½ tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or sorghum syrup
  • 2 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract or 1 tsp. raw vanilla bean powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 slices gluten-free bread

In a large, shallow casserole dish or pie pan, combine the nondairy milk, chickpea flour, cornstarch, nutritional yeast flakes, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, and whisk well.

Place 4 bread slices into almond milk mixture, flip slices over to coat other side, and leave to soak for 2 minutes.

Lightly oil a large, nonstick skillet, and place over medium heat. (Or use a griddle.)

Using a fork, carefully remove bread slices from the nondairy milk mixture, and place them into the hot skillet.

Cook bread slices for 1 or 2 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Flip over bread with a spatula, and cook for 1 or 2 more minutes or until golden brown on the other side.

While first batch cooks, repeat soaking procedure for remaining 4 slices of bread. Lightly oil the skillet again, and repeat procedure for remaining bread slices. Serve hot with maple syrup, sorghum syrup, or other toppings of choice.

Variation: For added flavor, add 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest and ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg to the nondairy milk mixture.

    I think the rating system is a little faulty, since my cursor accidently went across the stars, hit the 3 and saved that, lowering the rating. You should get this fixed.

    Unfortunately, the rating system is a standard plug-in, and there’s nothing we can do on our end. Thanks for alerting me to this, though!
