Eggless French Toast

Ever since I started making eggless pancakes, eggless omelettes, and vegan waffles, these have become staple breakfast items almost every weekend. The colorful rainbow tofu scramble is also a regular breakfast these days.

The one other classic American breakfast dish which was missing was the French toast. For some reason, I never was interested in trying it. But I started receiving requests for eggless French toast from some of the visitors to the blog. So started browsing for recipes and tried 2 variations.

Most of the recipes either used bananas instead of the eggs, or cornstarch or custard powder. I tried bananas and felt that the flavor of bananas was dominant in the toast.

French Toast without eggs

I was also not keen on using cornstarch as an egg substitute because I had few requests for French toast recipe without eggs and cornstarch.

Vegan French Toast with Applesauce

I wanted to try it with silken tofu, but didn’t have it in hand. So thought of using unsweetened applesauce instead of banana.

Also, there needed to be some binding agent for the mix to stick to the bread. I did not want to use corn starch, so used ground flaxseed. Another option is to use chia seeds, either whole or ground.

Applesauce French Toast

I blended everything together and set aside the French toast batter in a shallow bowl for a couple of minutes. Prepared the French toast by dipping the bread in the batter and followed the usual procedure to toast it and we all loved the taste.

The fact is I really don’t know if it’s a good substitute for the usual French toast because I haven’t tasted one! So you guys have to try it and tell me if it’s a good one.

You can easily make vegan French toast using the same recipe but substituting the milk with almond milk, coconut milk, or any other dairy-free milk (soy or rice) of your choice.

Easy to prepare egg less French toast using unsweetened applesauce and flax seed meal instead of eggs.
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 bread slices, preferably thickly sliced and stale (I used whole wheat bread)
  • A few droplets butter or coconut oil as needed

My Notes:
  1. You can make this eggless French toast vegan using non-dairy milk for the mix and coconut oil or any other oil/non-hydrogenated margarine of your choice for frying the bread.
  2. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons sugar or any other sweetener of your choice like maple syrup, honey, etc. to the batter.
  3. Make-ahead the batter overnight and leave it in the fridge and make the toast without eggs for breakfast the next day morning. If the batter gets too thick, dilute it with some milk or water.
  4. The nutritional information is for French toasts without any added toppings.

    I used banana flour instead of corn starch, almond milk instead of milk, and both cinnamon and nutmeg to make it fully vegan, it was amazing. It tasted like apple pie

    So I think I have this thing mastered. I’ve got it to not stick, turn golden brown, and taste fairly similar to French toast. Here are some tips I’ve found and substitutions I made. I used buttermilk instead of milk. Warmed it up in the microwave before adding corn starch instead of flax seed ( about a tbsp). Added cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla to that along with a 1/4 cup of melted ( but not broken)real butter. Heat the griddle to about 400 and use a stiff spatula ( I tried my silicone one and had bad results). I used less apple sauce as well. I doubled the milk ( butter milk) and added 3 heaping tablespoons of Motts natural. Worked great. My kiddo has an egg allergy do I have had to tweak a lot of recipes to accommodate – I used to go through at least 1-2 dozen eggs a week!

    • Madhuram

      That great! Thanks Jason! šŸ™‚

  8. J sandhu

    Tastes yummy but it’s a huge pain to cook.., it sticks to the pan no matter how much oil or spray I use. I made 3 and dumped the rest of the batch . Any suggestions?

    • Madhuram

      Did you try leaving it for a while in the pan for it brown nicely, so that it will be easy to lift off the pan?

  9. kajal

    is there any ingredient to replace flax seed and applesauce?
    as where i live it is tough to find them

    • Madhuram

      You can try with mashed bananas.

    Hello Dear,

    I am a vegetarian but used to eat food with eggs..French toast is my favorite and I just tried your recipe using apple sauce but mine sticks to the gridle and doesnt get Golden Brown. Would really appreciate your help in what am I missing.

    • Madhuram

      Hi Mandeep, I’m thinking the pan was not hot enough. Try greasing the pan with some butter/non-stick cooking spray before toasting the bread. Let it toast for a while in low-medium heat. Then flip it over.
