Vegan/Gluten Free French Toast

French Toast is delicious. With the tahini and almond/cashew cream, this french toast has a great, nutty flavor. This recipe is great since it’s pretty much exactly like regular french toast, just with a few substitutes. This is a quick and easy way to enjoy this old treat sans gluten, dairy, and eggs.

  • 1/2-1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp nutmeg, 2-3 tsps cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp tahini

Whisk the Mimic Creme, agave syrup, vanilla, and tahini in a small bowl. Add the flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Transfer the mixture to a pan or something with a shallow base (a tupperware worked perfectly). Take the bread and coat each side with the mixture. Toss the gooey bread into a frying pan with some Earth Balance (margarine/oil) and let it fry on each side for probably about 3-5 minutes.

Your quick and easy, gluten, vegan french toast is ready to be topped with some maple syrup, fresh fruit, or whatever else you’d like.
