Vegan French Toast
Today is February 23rd and it is National Toast Day! Many people think they cannot enjoy toast or french toast if they are vegan and or gluten free. We recently tried the breads from Little Northern Bakehouse and you might be surprised at how delicious they are. You can simply toast this bread and enjoy it with a little vegan butter or cream cheese. Or, you can try this super simple french toast recipe and enjoy a breakfast that is a little more exciting.
The Little Northern Bakehouse makes healthier, gluten-free breads that have an excellent taste and texture. These breads are vegan and made with plant-based, non-GMO ingredients and are certified Glyphosate Residue Free.
The Little Northern Bakehouse breads come in many delicious flavors. You can be assured that every loaf is plant-based, egg free, vegan, and gluten-free. The flavors that you can find at your stores include:
- Whole Grain
- Cinnamon Raisin
- Millet and Chia
- Seeds and Grains
- Sprouted 7 Grain
- Sprouted Honey Oat
- Millet and Chia hot dog and hamburger buns
The photo above is the nutrition information from the back of the loaf of cinnamon raisin bread. All of the Little Northern Bakehouse loaves can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store or health food store. The new Sprouted 7 Grain bread has a hearty sprouted grain and seed blend that includes sunflower seeds, sprouted red and white quinoa, sprouted amaranth, gluten-free sprouted quick oats, sprouted millet and sprouted brown rice flour.
Since this recipe is vegan and gluten-free you need to use something for the egg wash instead of eggs. I used aquafaba (the liquid in a can of chickpeas) in this recipe. It is easy to find aquafaba and it works perfectly to soften your bread for french toast. My non-gluten-free kids thought this french toast was delicious!
- Loaf of Little Northern Bakehouse gluten free bread
- 1/2 cup of aquafaba, the liquid from a chickpea can
- 1 T cinnamon
- 3 T plant based milk
- powdered sugar (optional)
- maple syrup (optional)
- Defrost a few slices of gluten free bread.
- In a small bowl mix drain the aquafaba from a can of chickpeas. If you have not used aquafaba before, simply drain 1 can of chickpeas in a strainer over a bowl. Reserve all the liquid for this recipe and make the chickpeas into another recipe.
- Mix aquafaba, plant based milk, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Dip each slice of bread into the bowl. Shake off any excess.
- Fry each slice in a little bit of plant-based butter.
- Fry on each side for about 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
- Enjoy with a little maple syrup or powdered sugar
