This easy, scrumptious recipe has been tested with both gluten-free (pictured) and wheat-based bread, and I've included a unique, fully-tested, delicious vegan version, too!
Serves: 4 servings
  • 8 slices gluten-free or wheat-based bread, about 8 to 10 ounces (I tested with Little Northern Bakehouse and Silver Hills Bakery)
  • 4 eggs (see below for egg-free / vegan version)
  • ⅔ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk beverage (I used Silk Almond - see post above for nut-free options)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus additional for serving (I used NOW Foods Grade B)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple and salt. Add bread cubes and gently toss to completely coat.
  2. Fill 4 greased ramekins with the bread cubes, gently pressing down as needed. If there is any leftover liquid in your bowl, drizzle it atop the bread cubes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350ºF, letting the bread cubes sit and soak while the oven preheats.
  4. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, depending on how deep your ramekins are (shallower ones will cook more quickly), how moist or dry you like your French Toast, and how well the bread soaks up that liquid!
  5. Serve with pure maple syrup for drizzling.
Vegan / Egg-Free Version: Omit the eggs and increase the unsweetened vanilla milk beverage to 1 cup. You are going to place the bread cubes in your large bowl first. Then blend the 1 cup milk beverage with ¼ cup mashed banana, 2 tablespoons buckwheat flour, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon oil (your choice of type), ¾ teaspoon baking powder, and ⅛ teaspoon salt in your blender until smooth. Pour the mixture over the bread cubes and toss gently to coat. Proceed with step 2. Baking time will be closer to 30 to 35 minutes. For a lightly sweeter and more moist result, increase the banana to ⅓ cup and the baking powder to 1 teaspoon.
