Why this Vegan Granola-Crusted Candied Peach French Toast is so good…
You can make this for any vegan skeptic and they won’t believe it isn’t made with eggs. Its just as golden, crispy and chewy, but doesn’t require any animal products whatsoever. Perfect for vegans, anyone with egg or daily allergies, or anyone who wants to branch out and try something new!

Okay this might be an unpopular opinion (or maybe you feel the same?!) but I prefer French toast to pancakes. I don’t know why… but pancakes always give me a weird feeling in my tummy after I eat them! It’s like my body knows its really just eating cake for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, I can demolish a stack of pancakes easily, but if given the choice I would always choose French toast! Something about the crispy edges and chewy soft center just makes my mouth water! Also, I love that you can use whatever bread you like for French toast. Sourdough, slightly stale white loaf, multigrain for a heartier taste like I used here, or even a high protein bread if you want it for post-workout refuel. Its so versatile!
But you know what? Vegan French toast was one of my biggest disappointments for a long time. It just never turned out right, and it took me a while to master. But now that I have completely and totally mastered it, I am so excited to come up with variations! The original version is incredible, but I have to be honest, this super summery version might top it.
