Delicious vegan french toast recipe
Easy eggless, dairy free, crispy and delicious french toast. Great for vegans or people with egg allergies. Best vegan french toast recipe with easy to find ingredients.
There’s nothing like delicious french toast for the perfect breakfast on the weekends. But what about people who don’t eat, or are allergic to eggs? This eggless french toast recipe has you covered.
First we’re going to make a batter using plant based milk, since this is also a vegan recipe. Then we add in all the usual ingredients: cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup.
To thicken the batter ingredients, we’re going to use ground flax seeds.
Ground flax seeds make an amazing egg substitute in baked goods. Plus they fill this recipe up with the good Omega 3 fats.
When you mix ground flax seeds with a liquid, they turn gelatinous and create a flax egg that is great for binding ingredients together.
We’re also adding corn starch. This also helps to thicken the milk mixture. Plus, it helps create a crispy outer layer to the french toast.
Make sure to use a thick slices of bread for french toast. Stale bread also works great for french toast. My favorite slice of bread to use are a nice crusty french bread, ciabatta or Texas toast.
If your french toast is soggy, it just means that you soaked it for too long. I recommend no more than 5-10 seconds, unless your bread is denser, then you can soak it for a little longer.
Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat before adding the french toast. For best results, add a little vegan butter or a little oil to the pan to prevent the french toast from sticking.
If you want to add an eggy flavor to the french toast, add some black salt, also called kala namak. You can find this online or at an Indian grocery store.
What’s the best vegan milk to use?
I recommend using a non-dairy milk that is thicker, or contains a little more fat. I love using either almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk or extra creamy oat milk.
What’s the best bread to use?
Use whatever kind of bread you have on hand. Thicker slices of sturdy bread are the best for french toast. So something like Texas toast.
You can also make your own bread. Here’s my easy four ingredient vegan bread recipe. It only takes five minutes to prep.
If you want this recipe to be a bit healthier, use a whole wheat bread.
Can you freeze french toast?
Absolutely! Just like waffles and pancakes, french toast does really well frozen. Just make sure that it’s completely cool, and then put them in a freezer friendly bag.
How long does french toast last?
You can keep french toast in the fridge in an airtight container for about 5 days and in the freezer for about 3 months.
French toast is a great way to meal prep breakfast ahead of time.
Eggless and vegan french toast batter stores really well in the fridge. Seal it in an air tight container and it will last about 5-7 days.
How do you reheat french toast?
French toast can be reheated in the microwave pretty easily, right from being in the fridge of freezer.
Just put a damp paper towel over the french toast and heat it up for 20 seconds at a time, until it get the desired temperature.
You can also re-heat it on the stove or in an oven, but you need to thaw it first, if frozen. Just take it out of the freezer the night before and put it in the fridge.
