French Toast:

  • 1 loaf brioche bread (Preferably a day old; See Notes for Vegan version)
  • 1 cup Almond milk, Unsweetened (Room Temp.)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 large organic eggs, room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 Tbsps Agave syrup

Caramelized Apples:

  • 1 medium granny smith apple, peeled + diced
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsps organic brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp organic pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  • pinch of sea salt

Optional Topping:

  • Chopped pecans



  • 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 Tbsp of 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 separate saucepan over medium-high heat, 1 Tbsp of butter along with the diced apples and stir a few times until butter melts and coats the apples. Add in the brown sugar and maple syrup, tossing everything together and cooking it until sugar dissolves, for 3-4 minutes. The sauce should become brown and sticky. Add in the pinch of salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Stir again until well combined and remove from heat.
  • To serve—stack french toast atop each other, spoon a generous amount of caramelized apples and chopped pecans, and drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
  • Bon Appetit!


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!
