MAKES: 3 servings (6 slices)
PREP TIME: 10 minutes


1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
1⁄3 cup chickpea flour
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
6 slices sourdough bread
4 tablespoons Earth Balance vegan butter, for frying
2 cups fresh mixed berries, for serving
2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar, for serving
extra maple syrup, for serving


Combine the non-dairy milk, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, and salt in a wide, shallow dish.

Place 2 slices of bread into the batter and allow the slices to sit in the batter while you heat up a non-stick pan over medium heat. Depending on the thickness and type of bread you’re using, you might want to soak for more or less time. The slices should be well coated on both sides but not overly soggy.

Once your pan is hot add 1 tablespoon of the vegan butter and coat most of the surface of the pan in an even layer.

Place 2 battered slices of the bread in the pan and cook on one side for approximately 3 minutes. Then flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes on the other side. Continue frying 2 slices at a time if you’re making multiple servings.

Serve with maple syrup, fresh berries, and a dusting of confectioners sugar if desired.
