You will need to have both a /boot/efi partition, and a /boot partition,
for encrypted boot.

So your partition table would need to look like this for what you want
to accomplish:

LUKS - /
LUKS - /swap
LUKS - /home

That said I'm not an expert on EFI installation via the Debian
installer. Can someone else chime in please?
