If you know me, you know that I love a tasty breakfast. During the week on most days, I tend to grab something quick like a Vegan Breakfast Parfait with Blueberries & Granola, since I often have to get to work. However, the weekends are my favorite because I get a chance to make something more intricate!
This french toast is one of my go-to weekend breakfast recipes lately, and the whole family loves it. I think yours will too!

Easy Dairy-Free Blueberry French Toast
5 from 9 votes
These Easy Dairy-Free Blueberry French Toast are perfect for breakfast or a nice brunch. These French Toasts are thick, delicious, uses a handful of ingredients, and completely dairy-free. Fully laced with classic cinnamon flavor, these french toast come covered with a lightly sweet blueberry compote that will have you going for a second round. Vegan option available.
Whisk together all the ingredients (except for the bread) into a large bowl and set aside so that everything marries together and activates, about 5 minutes.
Preheat griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of vegan butter, melting it.
Dip 1 slice of bread into the batter, soaking it in for a few seconds on each side. Place slice unto the heated griddle, cooking on each side for about 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Repeat until all french toast have been made.
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the blueberries, lemon juice, cane sugar, vanilla, and water together, stirring until everything comes to a boil and the blueberry juices are released. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced considerably, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. To thicken, mix together the arrowroot and WARM WATER until combined and "milky" in consistency. Add to the blueberry mixture and stir until it begins to thicken.
Once done, remove from heat.
To serve—stack french toast atop each other, spoon a generous amount of blueberry compote/topping and drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
Tips & Tricks
BREAD: Instead of brioche bread, you can also use vegan challah or ciabatta bread or any other rustic bread. In most cases, day old bread works best!
VEGAN BRIOCHE: To make your own vegan brioche bread, see my latest recipe.
VEGAN OPTION: To make these French toasts vegan, whisk together 1 tablespoon chia seeds and 3 Tbsps WARM water in a small bowl until combined and let it sit for 10 minutes until thickened completely. This makes 1 "Chia Egg". ** NOTE: For this recipe just use 2 "chia eggs" (that means 2 Tbsps chia seeds + 6 Tbsps WARM water).**
