Why We Love This Recipe
- Amazing taste! What I’m about to say isn’t an exaggeration; it might even be a disclaimer for you my friend and dear reader. I bought a whole loaf of bread to make this Vegan French Toast Recipe for the purpose of having enough pieces to select the very best subjects to photograph. Also, I make it a practice of trying out my recipe creations before I begin photographing them; if they don’t taste great, I’m not putting them on my site. So, where am I going with this right? The day I photographed this recipe I tasted it before I began shooting and was pretty much addicted at first bite (stupid pun). However, I couldn’t give my newfound addiction as much time as I wanted at that moment because I had a recipe to photograph; with all the stoicism I could muster, I stepped away from the food and went to work. When my shoot was over, I gently set my camera down, moved toward the kitchen with a sleepwalker-like-trance and began filling myself with more French toast than I typically eat in a year’s entirety. Now, there are a couple things you can do with this information: judge me for what is a glaringly obvious example of low will-power or take my humble confession and immediately go make this recipe! Be careful though, don’t make up too much of this Vegan Banana French Toast!
- It’s vegan! We won another recipe on this one! I’ll admit, not all recipes translate well to vegan (yet). However, with Vegan Banana French Toast, this isn’t the case. So, if you want to know How To Make Vegan French Toast, it’s simply about substituting two ingredients (eggs and milk) for two better ingredients (bananas and almond milk). That’s why it has a cleaner taste and you’ll walk away from the breakfast table feeling much lighter on your feet (unless you do what I did, as described above).
- Healthier than regular French Toast! Now, I’m not going to trash talk eggs and milk. While it’s true that The Vegan Plate is a strictly Vegan site, I prefer to look towards the positive attributes of my ingredients instead of preaching about why animal products are unhealthy and inhumane. So, let’s look at a few of the healthy ingredients in this recipe.
Is French Toast French?
French toast is something of a delicious mystery. Which is why food historians have been unsuccessful in fully pinning down the origins of this timeless classic. However, it appears that the concept of dipping bread in a milk and egg concoction is something that has been practiced the world around for quite some time. Yet, if we had to assign it’s origins to any one civilization it would be that of Rome. The earliest utterance of this dish comes from ancient recipes dated during the Roman Empire, 2nd century AD. The dish was described by a Roman noble named Apicius as a slice of fine white bread, crust removed, soaked in milk and beaten egg, fried in oil, and covered with honey.

How To Make Vegan French Toast
- Mash and Mix. Mash banana in a bowl. Add cinnamon, vanilla, and milk and mix well.

- Cook. Place two slices of bread into pan and cook on each side until both sides are golden.
- Serve. Place toast on plates and serve with maple syrup and choice of fresh fruit.
- Non-stick pan only. Don’t make this recipe using anything but a non-stick pan. However, if you do, know that I’ve warned you: your banana batter is going to glue the toast to your pan and it’s a horrible mess.
