Egg-Free French Toast Recipe

Updated on June 19, 2013 | Source

3 French Toast Recipes that Will Make You Smile!

Mmmm...French toast for does make you smile, doesn't it?

I'm giving you three delicious versions of French Toast, each of them egg-free and dairy free (if you wonder why to skip eggs and dairy, read the bottom of this article). I like to use a thickly sliced whole grain bread, but this recipe works well with french bread or just about any kind you choose. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try banana French toast recipe below.

French Toast Recipe #1

1 cup non-dairy milk (soy, coconut, almond, or whatever dairy free milk you prefer)
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon sugar
sprinkle of cinnamon
vegan margarine, such as Earth Balance (or whatever butter or oil you prefer for cooking)
several slices of bread (French Bread or regular store-bought bread)

Mix milk, vanilla, flour, cinnamon and sugar together. Pour into a wide plate and dip each slice of bread into mixture to coat both sides. Fry over medium heat with Earth Balance or oil until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes each side.

French Toast Recipe #2 Banana Flavored

This recipe uses bananas as egg-replacer to produce delicious banana-flavored French toasts.


  • 2-3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (soy, almond, or other)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • several slices of French Bread or any kind is fine
  • vegan margarine or vegetable oil
  • maple syrup


Blend bananas, non-dairy milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in blender or food processor and pour mixture into a wide dish. Piece by piece, dip bread slices into the mix, coating both sides. Heat up a frying pan, and fry each slice in vegan margarine in medium-hot skillet until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup if desired!

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Dairy-Free, Egg-Free French Toast #3 with Applesauce

1/2 cup soy milk or other non-dairy milk (vanilla flavor is fine)
1/2 cup apple puree (unsweetened)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil1 tablespoon flour
dash cinnamon
several slices of bread (French Bread or regular store-bought bread)

1. Mix all ingredients together and dip each slice in mixture. Cook each side on a hot skillet or frying pan for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Top with maple syrup or powder sugar. Enjoy!

Egg Substitutes in French Toast

Fruit makes an excellent replacement for eggs - try bananas, pureed pumpkin (canned is fine), apple sauce or any high pectin content fruit. Usually 1/4 cup of banana will replace 1 egg.

Fruits are super tasty egg substitute in many recipes, such as this.They add unique flavor that my family loves. Using this method also works great in baking, for example muffins, pancakes or yeast-free quick breads, and of course, banana bread!

When using bananas, all you have to do is mash up banana with a fork or blend in a blender about a half a small banana or 1/4 cup for each egg. Bananas provide the perfect amount of thick moisture, similar to eggs. What they don't do is help your dishes rise or turn out light and fluffy, so you'll also need to compensate for that by adding a bit of baking powder or baking soda, both of which are rising agents.

Why Eggless French Toast Recipe?

While many may have health considerations (such as egg-allergies, or avoiding cholesterol), for me the reason is compassion.

According to the Humane Society of the United States:

"Like birds raised for meat, chickens in the egg industry suffer immensely—beginning right after birth. Male chicks are considered byproducts, as they're unable to lay eggs and aren't bred for meat production. Millions each year are gassed, crushed, or thrown into garbage bins to die from dehydration or asphyxiation. Most female chicks are painfully mutilated without any anesthesia. The tips of their sensitive beaks are sliced off with a hot blade, making it difficult for them to grasp food..."

Why not show your compassion with this egg-less recipe, especially, if it's so easy and delicious!

      Ha, ha, that's a good one. But seriously, if you are looking for bread free, gluten-free breakfast ideas - you have to try chia seed pudding. I'm trying various recipes - as I just recently discovered how delightful it is - and I'm loving it! (Plus, as a bonus, my 8 year old loves it too!)
