Vegan Coconut milk french toast

French toast is a lovely addition to breakfast, but eggs are not so nice for us vegans. So what to do? How can we make French toast without eggs? One way is by using a thickened coconut milk batter, which tastes amazing and is totally free of undeveloped birds! 
Because coconut milk is wetter than egg, cooking takes quite a bit longer than regular French toast, but this is well worth it.

For 8 pieces:



  • 1 cup coconut milk 
  • ½ cup corn starch or rice flour 
  • ½ loaf thickly sliced bread – slightly stale cinnamon/cardamom (or any “sweet” spice) –to taste 
  • drizzle of oil for frying 


Method: 


  1. In a large or flat bowl, mix coconut milk with flour, making sure that all lumps are dissolved.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and in the meantime coat one piece of bread in the coconut mixture. 
  3. Fry for 5 minutes per side until golden brown.
  4. Flip the bread and repeat until all the bread and coconut batter is used.
  5. Serve with a dusting of spices, coconut syrup (pictured) or your favourite syrup or preserves.
