French Toast (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

After using chickpea brine for a vegan meringue, I had the idea to use it to make a gluten-free french toast! Guess what?! It worked! I have missed French Toast, but not anymore!

A classic French Toast with flavors of cinnamon, and vanilla, but with a vegan twist and gluten-free bread!

Tip: (1) You can substitute gluten-free bread with a gluten-free vegan baguette sliced, I personally like Schar (they are reasonably priced on Vitacost, try your local grocery store or Amazon). (2) Top with vegan whipped cream (if desired) and warm maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • Chickpea brine drained from a 15.5 oz can of chickpeas
  • 2.5 Schar gluten-free baguettes or 10 slices gluten-free vegan toast
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup dairy-free milk (I used almond)
  • 1 tablespoon monk fruit sweetener (you can also use sugar, coconut sugar, or xylitol)
  • Butter or coconut oil to grease the pan.


Directions

  1. Drain chickpea brine from the can and refrigerate remaining chickpeas to make pasta, soup, or salads, etc.
  2. Mix the chickpea brine, cinnamon, vanilla extract, sweetener, and dairy-free milk together in a bowl.
  3. Melt vegan butter or coconut oil in a skillet set to medium-high heat. I have used this skillet here with regular toast-sized bread and with coconut oil. I have also used my Zyliss pan for the mini-baguette slices and greased the pan with melted vegan butter. Both work well, depends on your choices.
  4. Dunk each slice of bread in chickpea mixture, soaking both sides.
  5. Place bread on the pan and cook until they are golden brown, then flip. If you remove too early, they will be mushy. You want them to almost caramelize in the butter or coconut oil.
  6. Serve warm with warm maple-syrup and dairy-free whipped cream.
