Monk's Chai Vegan French Toast

You won’t miss the eggs with this easy and delicious plant-based Monk's Chai French toast recipe. The nutritional yeast adds depth and a somewhat eggy note to this sweet and spicy recipe. It's fantastic served with a few slices of banana of a handful of berries on top. It’s crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and makes the perfect breakfast.


  • 1 cup (240ml) BonSoy Milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 2 Tbsp Monk's Chai
  • 4 Tbsp Chickpea Flour (or sub plain flour)
  • 2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon ( Cause you can never have enough)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (or use 1/4 tsp black salt and 1/4 tsp regular salt)*
  • 6 Slices Bread (thickly sliced)* Slightly older bread is perfect! We used the Fruit Loaf from Piggery at Burnham Beeches. It was a winner. 
  • Coconut oil (for frying)*


  1. Brew 2 Tbsp of Monks Chai on low heat in 1 cup of Bonsoy for about 4 minutes. Strain the chai and keep brewed chai to the side for step 2.
  2. Add the chickpea flour (or all purpose flour if you’re using) to a shallow bowl and add just a dash of your brewed Chai and mix in until smooth. Then add the rest of the brewed Chai.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt and whisk together.
  4. Heat up a frying pan with some coconut oil.
  5. Soak a slice of bread in the batter for a few seconds on each side, and then place onto the frying pan to cook until browned on each side.
  6. Plate up and enjoy with an extra mug of Monk's Chai to wash it down
