Choosing the Bread

Not all bread is vegan-friendly. The simplest form of bread is only four ingredients, namely flour, salt, yeast, and water. However, some types add more animal-based ingredients to alter the texture and flavor. Hence, vegans have to be careful when choosing the bread to make vegan French toast.

Dairy ingredients will be easy to spot and look out for the following ingredients in your bread:

  • Honey
  • Royal jelly
  • Gelatin
  • Whey or casein
  • Mono and diglycerides
  • (emulsifier)
    Lecithin (emulsifier)

While the last two ingredients may be derived from soybeans and soybean oil, they can also be sourced from animal fats, so you have to be cautious when buying them. Always look for certified vegan bread.

If you don’t want to confuse yourself with vegan and non-vegan bread types, just look for the following bread as they are all certified vegan:

  • Sourdough
  • Pita
  • Ezekiel (bread made from sprouted whole grains and legumes)
  • Ciabatta
  • Baguette
  • Focaccia
  • Kosher bread

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices of vegan bread of your choice (at least ¾ inch thick)
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of millet flour or whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast

  2. Arrange the slices of bread on a shallow dish with sides. Pour the mixture over the bread. Flip the bread to ensure that all sides are coated.

  4. Put the toasted bread on a flat plate and sprinkle powdered sugar on top. You can also pour on maple syrup and add a dab of vegan butter and some fruits to make it tastier.
