Eggless French Toast

Ever since I started making eggless pancakes and eggless waffles, these have become staple breakfast items every weekend. The colorful rainbow tofu scramble is also a regular in place of the usual egg scramble.

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 it 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. 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 cornstarch, so used flax seed meal.

I blended everything together and set it aside for a couple of minutes. Prepared the toasts as usual and we all loved it. 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.

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

  • 1/2 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
  1. In a blender, blend together all the ingredients except bread and oil. Pour it in a wide dish.
  2. Heat a griddle at medium-high. Once the pan is hot add the butter or oil.
  3. French Toast Mix
    Preheat the pan with drops of coconut oil

  4. Dip bread into the mix gently on both sides. Do not drench it in the mix and make it soggy.
  5. Toast the dipped bread on both sides until golden brown.
  6. Soak Break Slice
    Place it on Pan

My Notes:
  1. You can make it vegan use non-dairy milk for the mix and coconut oil or any other oil/non-hydrogenated margarine of your choice for frying the bread.

    Iā€™m a kid with an egg allergy, but I still love to bake. It still is tricky for me to find food or desserts without egg, thank you for showing me there are so many recipes without egg. It makes everything easier. Btw: I made this, it tasted great.

    I made a half recipe for my 7 year old vegan grandson. Used half a banana instead of applesauce. He loved it!

    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!

      That great! Thanks Jason! šŸ™‚

    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?

  7. 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.
