Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 loaf vegan lemon vanilla challah or another challah/brioche cut into 3cm/1in slices
  • 375 ml / 1 1/2 cups nondairy milk I use oat
  • 4 eggs*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1 teaspoon extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Zest of a lemon
  • Coconut oil for cooking


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, salt, and lemon zest. Dip the challah slices into the egg mixture, letting them soak for a minute each side.

  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat with about a teaspoon of coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, cook 2-3 slices of french toast at a time, until golden, about 3 minutes each side. Repeat until all of the bread has been used. Serve immediately with coconut yogurt, strawberries, and maple syrup.


* The eggs I use are closer to medium in size compared to North American eggs, but large will be fine.
