French Toast

We love French toast at our house. When I went out to eat at a place that had French toast, I always ordered it. I went looking for a vegan version that was straight-forward and tasty. I found one from Minimalist Baker

1 Tbsp ground chia seeds
1/2 Tbsp agave syrup
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
vegan butter for greasing pan
4-6 slices of French bread, sliced 1/2 - 1 inch thick


  1. Use a whisk to mix the ground chia seeds, agave syrup, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla together. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  2. Slice the bread (if you haven't already.)
  3. Preheat a griddle over medium heat, and melt butter.
  4. Place the slices of bread into the milk mixture for about 30 seconds per side.
  5. Transfer to the warm and buttered griddle. Cook each side until golden brown (on griddle side), a couple minutes per side.
  6. Top with desired topping, I have granola and maple syrup in this picture.
Other toppings we enjoy are whipped topping, peanut butter, and fruit.
