Today’s guest post is from Katrina, who is sharing this amazing vegan french toast recipe with us!
French Toast Recipe
Katrina says, “While I don’t necessarily embrace the vegan lifestyle, I have a deep appreciation for those who do. My son has since outgrown his food allergies, but for a while we struggled with trying to come up with recipes that steered clear of milk and eggs. Really becoming aware of what was in the foods we ate was a bit shocking. To say the least, we got a huge wake up call when it came to learning to read labels. It is always exciting to come up with a new way to make an old favorite – especially when the whole family enjoys it! I played around with a few french toast recipes until I found something soooo delicious! “
This recipe is dairy and egg free!
Vegan French Toast
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 c. soy/almond/coconut milk we used vanilla soy milk - but I bet coconut milk would be yummy!
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. cinnamon I added just a bit more
- and just a little nutmeg about 1/8 tsp
- gluten free bread
- dairy-free margarine we like Smart Balance Light
- Put all of the ingredients (except the bread and margarine) into the blender and mix it up. My kids got excited and thought we were having "banana soup" 🙂
- Pour the mixture into a deep plate and dip your bread on both sides.
- Melt a bit of the margarine in the skillet (you can use a non-stick spray or bit of oil if you want, but I had the best luck with the margarine).

To make it even more fun, you can slice your bread into “sticks” before dipping into the mixture and cooking.
Sorry I don’t have any photos of the finished product, we got a little bit busy enjoying them and I didn’t get any pictures.
Please note, if you’re going into this expecting something “french toast-y” – you will likely be disappointed. I love this recipe and think its uber tasty, but its not your traditional french toast. You can definitely taste a lot of banana (which I love). Its kind of like a warm banana bread – crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. These taste great plain or topped with whatever you’d like.
