Dairy-Free Sourdough French Toast

French Toast with strawberries and cup of coffee

Now that everybody's making their own sourdough bread, it's the perfect time to try out this European-style, egg-free, dairy-free French Toast!

This recipe takes much less time than a traditional egg-based recipe and leaves less of a mess. This is a great perk because, let's face it, who wants to spend the morning cleaning out a mixer?

What I also love about this dairy-free recipe is that it's much lighter than a traditional French Toast - for those watching their waistlines.

Obviously you'll want a really excellent loaf of unsliced sourdough bread and your preferred milk alternative.

We use coconut oil, but feel free to substitute with a dairy-free butter alternative.

I have to credit my wife for this recipe, inspired by her time spent living in Paris.

Ingredients for French Toast

Again, I recommend using unsliced sourdough, so you can slice thick slices. If all you have is sliced, that should be fine - just reduce the cooking time slightly.

This is a very adaptable recipe! Feel free to replace the almond milk with your own milk alternative. Also, you can replace any of the spices listed, should they not agree with you.

French Toast batter with ingredients

In a large bowl, combine the almond milk, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Lightly mix.

Hand slicing sourdough bread

Slice the sourdough into about 1 inch thick slices.

Coconut oil being poured into nonstick pan

Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to your nonstick pan, and begin to heat over medium-high heat.

Bread being dunked into batter with bread slices on plate

Soak your sourdough slices in your dairy-free milk mixture for about 5 seconds on each side. Set aside on a plate.

French Toast frying in pan

Place your soaked sourdough slices in your preheated nonstick pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side (or until lightly browned).

Sliced strawberries with knife

While the French Toast cooks, thinly slice your strawberries so that they're ready to place atop the sourdough.

French toast with coffee

Once the French Toast is finished cooking, plate it. Drizzle with maple syrup. Top with strawberries, raspberries, or fruit of your choice.

We also like to add some good granola for crunchiness, though this is optional.

And finally enjoy your diary-free, sourdough French Toast with your favorite morning beverage, and let us know how the recipe turned out for you!
