  1. Combine your milk, vanilla, chia flour (see notes), cinnamon, salt, nutritional yeast, and optional honey in a large mixing bowl. Mix and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. While the batter is sitting. Preheat griddle or frying pan to medium high (350F). Use oil/butter and spread it even.
  3. Once batter and sit for 10 minutes, dip bread into batter (one at a time) and place on griddle. Make sure not to soak it too much or bread will fall apart. Fry for 3-4 minutes and then CAREFULLY use a spatula to flip and fry/cook another 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Repeat until all pieces of bread are cooked and placed on a plate.
  5. Next combine your butter, honey, and lemon in a small cup and stir until it’s made into a sauce.
  6. pour over french toast and garnish with lemon slices and powdered sugar. Sauce Makes about 1/4 cup so double if you are serving more than 2 people


For chia flour, just combine 2-3 tbsp chia seed in a high powered mixer/blender. Use 1 tbsp of that for the chia flour.

If you don’t want to use chia or nutritional yeast, replace with one egg instead.

Feel free to heat the sauce up for 15 seconds before serving. You can also use coconut butter if you don’t have earth balance/real butter.

Don’t feel like making the sauce? Just use regular butter/coconut oil and honey to top!

Vegans can use egg free bread and agave nectar instead of honey.
