Vegan Coconut Spice French Toast

Crispy and lightly browned on the outside, soft and delicate inside. Slight coconutty flavor, accented with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger…. the most perfect french toast!

I haven’t made french toast in years… literally. When I first became vegan, I tried a couple of different recipes using silken tofu as the base, but they didn’t work so well for me. The bread tended to stick to the pan, and I wasn’t thrilled with the tofu taste.

BUT ~ when I recently realized that coconut milk would make the perfect base, I was THRILLED! And it was even better than I imagined it would be.

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Bread of choice

Whisk together the coconut milk and spices. Place the bread in the mixture and let soak for 10 minutes. Heat the griddle and lightly spray with grapeseed oil. Cook until lightly browned on both sides, and serve with your favorite toppings.

A simple recipe that gives spectacular results!

Depending on how many pieces you make, there may be coconut mixture left, which is perfect to use in a green smoothie.

It was gone before I could take a picture, but was delicious :-).

  1. LOL…love the empty smoothie glass. What a great and simple and yummy recipe! I’ve not had french toast in many years. Amazing the coco milk made that much difference. And i love that you don’t use oil in the recipe or fry the bread.

  2. oh oh oh I heard about this french toast and was hoping we’d get a recipe. Now, if only I can find some coconut milk!
