Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kala namak
  • About 2 tablespoons vegan butter or oil, for grilling
  • 4 to 6 thick crusty bread slices (slightly stale bread works great)
Instructions
  1. Whisk the coconut milk, soy or almond milk, cornstarch, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and kala namak together in a medium bowl.

  2. Generously coat the bottom of a medium skillet with oil and place it over medium heat.

  3. Dip one side of a bread slice into the batter, then flip and dip to coat the other side. Be careful not to oversaturate it, or it could fall apart.

  4. Transfer the bread slice to the pan. You can dip a few more slices and cook them at the same time, as long as you don't crowd the pan.

  5. Cook the French toast for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned on the bottom, then flip and cook about 5 minutes more.

  6. Repeat until all of the bread and batter have been used, adding butter or oil to the skillet between batches.

  7. Serve with maple syrup, vegan butter, and any of your favorite toppings.
