French toast (gluten free & vegan)

French toast is something that I haven’t had since being diagnosed Coeliac, so I decided it was about time to make my own gluten free, dairy free and vegan version, meaning everyone can enjoy it. I topped mine with dairy free yoghurt and berries. If you get a chance to recreate my recipe, I’d love to see photos!


For the french toast: 

3 slices gluten free bread (I used Asda freefrom brown bread but any bread is fine)

3/4 cup almond milk

2 tbsp gluten free all purpose flour

1 tbsp chia seeds

2 tbsp coconut sugar (could also use normal sugar or sweetener)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp coconut oil for frying


  1. Add your almond milk, flour, chia seeds, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon to a large bowl and whisk until fully combined.
  2. Add your coconut oil to a frying pan and place on a medium heat.
  3. Coat your bread in the fully combined mixture and transfer to the frying pan to cook on each side for 3 minutes.
  4. Once your french toast is cooked, transfer to a plate and top with the dairy free yoghurt and berries, enjoy!

I absolutely love seeing what you’ve created, so if you do make this recipe (or any other recipe from my website) don’t forget to tag me over on my social media pages @glutenfreealice and use the hashtag #glutenfreealice
