Vegan Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

A chilly Saturday morning deserves something comforting and delicious for breakfast.  This pumpkin french toast casserole is easy to make, and so good!  Traditional french toast contains eggs and dairy but this one is completely plant based!  The next time you have some leftover canned pumpkin on hand, give this a try!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees, and oil two 1 quart baking dishes (or see bottom of post for other baking dish options).
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the flax seeds and water mixture, coconut milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, spices, sea salt, and vanilla until well combined, then add the bread and toss to coat in the mixture.
  3. Transfer to the prepared baking dishes, (including the liquid, pour it over them). Sprinkle with the maple sugar.
  4. Place in the oven on a tray, and bake for about 25-30 minutes (see bottom for other pan sizes baking times), or until the top is starting to brown and the liquid has absorbed and baked into casserole at the bottom.
  5. Remove from oven.
  6. Serve drizzled with maple syrup.

For 1 8×8 inch square pan or 2 quart baking dish: bake 30-40 minutes
