My son always asks for french toast for breakfast, and who can blame him, right?! I don’t always have time to make it for him, so I wanted to see how well a batch would freeze. The frozen french toast sticks at the supermarket always have either milk listed as an ingredient, or a few ingredients I can’t even pronounce. This recipe lets you create and freeze your own dairy-free french toast sticks, which are perfect to have on hand for those busy mornings. We enjoy ours with a side of fresh fruit, and some pure maple syrup whisked with a tablespoon or two of melted Earth Balance. Feel free to double or triple the recipe to have a bigger batch leftover to freeze.
Dairy-Free Freezer French Toast Sticks
makes 12 french toast sticks
1/3 cup vanilla coconut milk beverage (any dairy-free milk will really work here)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 or 3 tablespoons sugar (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
a shave or two of fresh nutmeg
4 slices of dairy free bread – brioche, french toast bread, cinnamon roll bread, texas toast, or your favorite hearty bread will work well
Earth Balance or your favorite dairy free buttery spread
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. In a bowl, mix together your eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slice your bread into 3 pieces per slice to make sticks. Dip each stick into egg mixture, and cook in skillet until golden brown on all sides.
Let your sticks cool, then place them on a cookie sheet to freeze. Once frozen you can pack them into a freezer bag.
To reheat frozen sticks, you can microwave them for about 1 minute on high, or in your oven on 425°F for about 4 minutes per side.
To serve, you can dust the sticks with a bit of powdered sugar if you want. We like to dip ours in pure maple syrup mixed well with a bit of melted Earth Balance.
Nutrition info is for serving size of 4 sticks, and does not include the maple syrup or Earth Balance. To lighten it up, you can omit the sugar and use unsweetened milk if you’d like.
