Level: Apprentice     Category: Breakfast             Time: 30 Min             Yields: 4 servings


  • 1 Cup Dairy Free Milk
  • 3 TBL Corn starch, Potato starch or Tapioca starch
  • 2 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 1 TLB Maple Syrup
  • 1 TSP Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 Slices Thick GF Bread (BFree or Schar)
  • 4 TLB Dairy Free Butter (Earths Balance)


  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Large Nonstick Sauté Pan
  • Spatula
  • Oven Safe Plate (optional)
  • Oven Mitts (optional)


  1. In your large mixing bowl, combine with a whisk the dairy free milk, cornstarch, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and vanilla.
  2. Make sure you have just whisked your mixture before soaking your bread so the cinnamon and starch do not sink to the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Place one slice of bread into your milk mixture just long enough to coat then flip to the other side.  Soak for a few seconds on each side.
  4. Melt 2 TLB dairy free butter in your non-stick sauté pan on medium high heat.
  5. Place 2 slices of bread in your pan. Cook for on one side for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the bread and cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Repeat with your remaining bread slices and your allergen friendly butter.
  7. Place slices on your plate. You can keep your French Toast slices warm in a preheated oven set to 150°-200°F on an oven safe plate.
  8. Serve with maple syrup or topping of your choice!
  9. You can store your French Toast in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and in the freezer for up to 2 months in an airtight container or bag.
  10. You can reheat the French Toast slices in a preheated oven at 350°F for 5-7 minutes.  You can also place your slices in a traditional toaster to reheat.


  • Add a dash of orange juice to add a subtle citrus flavor.
  • Have fun with toppings such as powdered sugar and/or fresh berries.
  • If you find the French Toast too browned for your taste either wipe the pan out between batches or put non-stick spray on your pan before Step 4 – Melt butter.


  • If you want to streamline the process, you can coat all your bread slices in the batter and set them aside on a platter.  Next, cook them in your sauté pan as stated above.
