Servings 5 servings


  • 5-6 large thick slices of bread
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tbsp. flax meal
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon


  • In a small shallow bowl add almond milk, flax meal, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon and stir until incorporated. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium low heat and grease with your preferred method. I used a nonstick olive oil cooking spray.
  • Once your pan is hot take your bread and drench it into the batter on both sides. Place the bread onto the skillet and cook until golden brown about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • It is important not to have your pan too hot as the french toast will not cook properly and will burn. Low to medium heat is best for this recipe.
  • Serve immediately with your choice of toppings. I like mine with fresh fruit and warm maple syrup.
  • Enjoy!


  • A thick sturdy bread works best for french toast. I used Sourdough. Sandwich bread is too soft and will result in soggy French Toast. 
  • It is important not to use high heat with this recipe. It will quickly burn, low to medium heat works best.
