Overnight Vegan French Toast Christmas Breakfast Casserole

by | December 28, 2018

Christmas morning is hectic, overwhelming and anxiety-inducing. I used to spend the whole day in the kitchen preparing a magical feast for my family, and I felt like I was missing out on some of the celebrations. So I decided to make easier on myself by preparing breakfast ahead of time. This way I get to spend some quality time with my family on Christmas morning. I’ve been making overnight vegan french toast Christmas breakfast casserole for a few years now, and it’s delicious and sanity saving.

Overnight Vegan French Toast Christmas Breakfast Casserole


  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 3/4 cups almond milk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 loaf fresh vegan-friendly French bread, torn into chunks


  1. Add the chunks of bread to a large casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  2. In a bowl, mix the almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt. Pour the french toast mixture over the top of the chunks of bread. Coat each piece of bread well so that it absorbs all of the flavors.
  3. Cover the baking dish with saran wrap, and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. To prepare the French toast, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, and bake for 45 minutes, uncovered, or until the top is nice and crisp and golden.
  5. Serve drizzled with maple syrup.

    Hi there I would like to try this but in the recipe it doesn’t tell me where to add the flour…is that stirred into the almond milk mixture (which is my assumption)? Thanks and look forward to trying!

    What’s the 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour for?

    Is the whole wheat flour mixed with the milk mixture? I’m not seeing where it’s used.
