This perfect Biscoff French Toast Recipe is an easy recipe that is the perfect holiday treat! It’s dipped in a creamy protein-packed batter, topped with crunchy Biscoff cookies, and is perfect for Christmas morning. Plus, it could be made gluten-free!
How to Make This – Step by Step
- Slice. If not already sliced, slice bread and set out to dry out, preferably the day before. If you don’t have time for that, lay the bread slices on a sheet tray and pop in the oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees to dry out.
- Crush. Add half of the cookies to a food processor or high powered blender. Crush into a crumble like texture. Remove from blender and set aside for use later
- Make batter. Combine eggs, protein powder, remaining cookies, vanilla, and macadamia milk to the blender and blender until smooth. It’s very important to use lighter plant based milk so as not to weigh down the bread. Transfer this egg mixture to a shallow, wide dish that is large enough to dip the bread in.
- Heat. Heat frying pan and melt butter over medium heat.
- Dip and fry! Using a fork, dip a slice of bread in the wet mixture and let sit for 30 seconds. Flip to the other side and let sit another 30 seconds. Transfer piece of bread to the pan of melted butter and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Repeat! Repeat with the remaining slices of bread.
- Enjoy! Enjoy topped with the crush biscoff cookies, maple syrup, whip cream, and anything else you might like!
- Top! Our favorites are Biscoff spread, peanut butter, and cinnamon sugar.
Quick Facts and Common Qustions
How long does this dish take?
How much does this make?
Does this meet my dietary needs?
This recipe is high in protein. It could also be made dairy free and/or gluten-free by swapping out brioche bread.
How many pans should I plan for this meal?
1 blender, 1 frying pan, and 1 shallow dish for dipping the stale bread in.
How long does this keep?
3 days in the fridge
Is it freezer friendly?
Yes, just pop in oven to reheat without getting soggy
Can I pack this for lunch?
Yup! We love to take this with for an on-the-go breakfast
Where do I find Macadamia milk?
You can get it online, but it’s also available in most grocery stores in the non-perishable milk section. This section is typically near the common baking items.
Can I use oat milk?
No! Because brioche bread is so soft and light, this recipe relies on light ingredients. Oat milk is too heavy, as is flax milk. Check out the substitutions below for other options.
Can I use Biscoff Spread instead of cookies?
Sure can! Just use ⅓ of a cup of spread in place of the cookies in the egg mixture/batter
Why use vegan ingredients if Brioche isn’t vegan?
Great question! For those of us who are dairy sensitive, limiting the ingredients that have dairy in them drastically helps. This will not be the case obviously, if you are allergic to dairy, but is immensely helpful when sensitive to dairy.

Brioche Bread: Any bread you want can be used as long as its stale bread! Even white bread! However, in our opinion, brioche is the best bread to use.
Eggs: You can use flax eggs (flaxseed and water) but it will result in a heavier batter with less protein.
Biscoff Cookies: Graham crackers (check out these Kodiak Protein Graham Bear Bites!), vanilla wafer cookies, or ginger snap cookies. Really any sweet, crunchy cookies!
Vanilla Extract: Vanilla bean paste, imitation vanilla, or vanilla beans can be used. You could also used vanilla flavored milk and omit the vanilla extract.
Macadamia milk: Low-fat cow’s milk, coconut milk (not in a can), soy milk, hemp milk, or rice milk can be used. Oat milk and flax milk should not be used. It is too heavy for Brioche Bread. If using a whole wheat bread or heavier, denser bread, you may be able to use oat milk but it has not been tested.
Vegan Butter: Regular butter can be used.
Plant Based Protein Powder: Regular vanilla protein powder can be used or your favorite plant based. We have been loving KOS protein powder and I Heart Macros (not plant based but far superior for baking).
French Toast was created in medieval times as a way to use up all food. It was traditionally made with white bread, the most elite bread of its time, with the crust cut off. This was a way to serve old bread to royalty while still making it feel and taste like it was made for kings. While it has been determined that French Toast was created in medieval times, similar recipes can be traced back to Ancient Rome under the name of Roman Bread. It’s probably obvious that French Toast is eaten all over the world, but there are some variations. In Scotland, it is eaten as a sandwich with sausage in between two slices of French Toast. In England it is sometimes eaten with Ketchup (now I get why my family eats ketchup on everything…) (Source)
