Almond Cardamom and Vanilla French Toast [Vegan]





For the French Toast:

  • 4-6 slices day old bread
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons flour (millet, spelt, whole wheat, etc.)
  • 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Coconut oil, for the pan

For the Toppings:

  • Maple syrup
  • Ground almonds
  • Lemon zest
  • Fresh blueberries and blackberries


  1. Place almond milk, cardamom, vanilla, flour, nutritional yeast, and maple syrup in a blender and blend until smooth. You can also whisk together in small bowl. Place bread in a shallow baking dish and pour the almond milk mixture over top. Let the bread soak for a minute or two then flip it over so all sides are well coated.
  2. Heat a drizzle of coconut oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, add bread and cook for a few minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  3. Serve with fresh berries, lemon zest, ground almonds and plenty of maple syrup on the side.
