Yields 8 pieces     adjust servings

gluten-free option*, soy-free, no oil added

French toast is a perfect way to start a weekend. This recipe takes it over the top with crunchy pecans and crispy oats. You can cut the bread into fingers to make them even more fun to eat!


  • Makes a little over 2 cups - enough for 10 - 12 pieces of toast
  • 1 cup (99g) rolled oats
  • 1 cup (113g) pecans, or nut of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons (12g) ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon (2g) ground cinnamon
  • 8 pieces of whole grain vegan bread, regular or cinnamon raisin (*use gluten-free bread)
  • 3/4 cup nondairy milk (plain or vanilla)
  • maple syrup, for serving


Make the topping by adding the oats, nuts, flax seed and cinnamon to your food processor and pulse until it looks similar to bread crumbs. Do not over blend. Pour into a shallow pan that's large enough to dip your bread slices in.

Add the nondairy milk to a second container, then soak one or two pieces of the bread for about 15 seconds, turn and soak the other side. You don't want to leave it long enough to become mushy.

Place the amount that fits into your air fryer basket at once time without overlapping. Cook at 350 degrees for 3 minutes, then flip the bread and cook 3 more minutes.

Repeat until all the bread is coated and cooked.

Serve topped with maple syrup.
