Zombie-Free French Toast

The duo behind The Vegan Zombie fame share their go-to recipe for French Toast—zombies not included.

We already know that Ellen DeGeneres can't get enough of the Vegan Zombies, but, we're big fans around here as well. From their highly entertaining video cooking series to a new cookbook filled with easy-to-make vegan recipes, we sleep better knowing Chris Cooney and Jon Tedd are warding off any potential zombie apocalypse. Whip up this delicious French Toast for a quick weekday breakfast or a special weekend meal—and you, too, will be amongst the survivors.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
