Honey Lemon Vanilla Gluten Free French Toast {Vegan Friendly}


  • 1 cup almond milk (regular or vanilla)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 tbsp chia grinded up (which is about 2 tbsp seeds- see notes for make chia flour)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 45 pieces of gluten free bread
  • Powdered sugar
  • Lemon slices


  • 12 tbsp Vegan ButterĀ  or refined coconut oil (softened or melted)
  • 23 tbsp honey (Agave for vegan)
  • 1/2 lemon , squeezed
  • Sauce Makes about 1/4 cup so double if you are serving more than 2 people


  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.

For non vegan version replace chia and nutritional yeast, with one egg instead.
