Units Scale

Step 1

  • Nonstick vegetable spray
  • 1 (9-ounce) day old French Bread or Sourdough bread, sliced
  • 3 eggs or 2/3 cup plant based eggs
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk

Step 2

  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar, light or dark
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup plant based margarine, 1/2 stick
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries plus more for garnish
  • maple syrup (optional)


Step 1

  1. Grease a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.  Arrange the sliced bread in the dish.  Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla.
  3. Stir in milk until well blended.
  4. Pour the milk mixture over the bread in the baking dish.  Turn the bread slices to coat well.
  5. Tightly cover the baking dish and refrigerate overnight.

Step 2

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  3. Cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Remove the baking dish from the refrigerator and uncover.  Turn the bread slices over.
  5. Scatter the blueberries over the bread, then evenly sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top.
  6. Bake 40 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Serve hot with additional blueberries and maple syrup.


The original recipe calls for dark brown sugar.  I used light brown sugar but the dark will result in a slightly richer flavor.

If you can find gluten free French bread it will result in a slightly milder flavored French toast.  

In a pinch you can use any day old gluten free bread, although it may result in a mushier French toast and the bread (depending upon many variables) may dissolve.
