Sweet cinnamon goodness comes through in this French Toast Latte. It’s what breakfast dreams are made of if they were made in a drink. With homemade French Toast Syrup, maple syrup, shot of espresso, topped with whipped cream and brown sugar cinnamon.
The origins of French toast have been traced back to the Roman Empire and were originally called Pan Dulcis. This had all the classic elements to the French toast we know today, soaked bread in milk and egg mixture then fried in oil or butter.
As our love for this grew over the centuries it has now become a staple breakfast item. Then more recently people thought why not create a drinkable version! Here’s where I come in with a spin on a classic latte, making it perfect to enjoy with French toast itself.

What’s in the French Toast Latte?
French Toast latte is made to taste like French Toast, with a simple syrup mix with brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla paste which is mixed in with plant-based milk, maple syrup and mixed with a shot of espresso. Feeling a little decadent then top with whipped vanilla cream and brown sugar with cinnamon.
What You’ll Need to Make French Toast Latte
The latte is super simple to make at home, especially if you have the premade syrup ready to go!
For this vegan French Toast latte recipe, you will just need a few ingredients:
- French Toast Syrup, contains all the great flavors like vanilla extract, brown sugar, and cinnamon. See how to make this recipe, here.
- Oat Milk – preferably barista version as this is made to handle the heat and you will avoid your milk splitting. The brands I use are unsweetened.
- Espresso shot.
- Maple Syrup.
- Optional: Either pre whipped cream or whisk heavy cream to make a thick cream and top with cinnamon brown sugar.
Here are a few substitutions you could make:
- Swap the homemade French Toast syrup for premade syrup. Replace with a teaspoon of vanilla syrup and cinnamon syrup.
- Use any of your favourite plant-based milk. I always recommend using a barista version when it comes to coffee recipes as this is made to handle the temperatures of steamed milk.
- Replace the maple syrup with your preferred sweetner.
Tools For the Recipe
Equipment you will need to make the latte with:
- Small pot or saucepan.
- Espresso Machine – Moka Pot, Aeropress, Nespresso Machine or anything you can make an espresso with.
- 12oz or 330ml Glass.

- Go the Australian route and serve a savory version of french toast.
- Make it alcoholic by adding a shot of coffee liqueur.
