Vegan Cornflake French Toast | The Hangry Chickpea

Vegan Cornflake Crusted French Toast

  • Author: The Hangry Chickpea
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 8-10 slices 1x
  • Category: Breakfast




  • 1 loaf stale vegan brioche, sliced into ½-¾ in pieces (or whatever vegan bread you can find)
  • 1 box plain cornflakes
  • Butter for pan frying


  • 1 ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup aquafaba aka chickpea juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • A couple dashes nutmeg


  • Sliced bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Syrup
  • Powdered sugar
  • Coconut whipped cream (Reddi Whip makes some, I find it at Publix)


  1. Set up your stations: stale bread, custard in shallow dish (I used an 8x8 cake pan), cornflakes, frying pan, and lined sheet tray. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Ready? Good.
  2. Dip each side of brioche in custard for 1-2 seconds each, then dip into cornflakes on both sides. Add a small shaving of butter into the frying pan (you definitely don't want too much). Then, lay your cornflake crusted piece of bread into frying pan, cook for 1-2 mins on each side, then transfer to baking sheet. Once all slices have been through the aforementioned steps, move on to step 3.
  3. Put sheet pan into your preheated oven, and bake for 10-12 mins.
  4. Make your stack with your extras.
  5. Make somebody else do the dishes 🙂
