Make perfect egg free French toast with this recipe! Crisp, comforting, and so delicious – you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything with this easy breakfast.
French toast…can you make it without eggs? That’s a question that I get asked pretty regularly. And it took me awhile to investigate the answer, because I just have never loved French toast.
Is that odd? I’ve never loved the batter on the bread, or just the general egginess of it. All the more reason to come up with a recipe for egg free French toast, I suppose!
Well, I’m sorry that I took so long. I did come up with a recipe for vegan French toast without eggs, and I like it SO much better than the traditional recipe! It’s lighter, the crust is crisper, and it’s just all around more delicious.
You may wonder what to batter the bread with, if we aren’t using eggs. It’s actually really simple – just a mix of non-dairy milk, potato starch, cinnamon, and a dash of salt.
If potato starch won’t work for you, I think cornstarch or maybe even tapioca starch would work just as well. The starch is in the batter to provide that crispy crust that makes this eggless French toast so yummy!
A few tips to make this egg free French toast a success:
- make sure to oil your frying pan really well – use lots of vegan buttery spread
- use your spatula to move the bread around – if it sits too long in one spot, it will start to stick
- take your time – it takes a bit of time to get the crispy crust – about 4-5 minutes per side

The best egg free French toast! You won't feel like you're missing out with this allergy friendly breakfast recipe.
Place the non-dairy milk, potato starch, cinnamon, and salt in a shallow bowl and whisk together.
Place one tablespoon vegan buttery spread in a frying pan and melt over medium heat (5 or 6 on an electric stove).
Once the pan is hot and the buttery spread is sizzling, take a fork and dip a piece of bread into the batter, making sure the bread is coated on both sides. Place in the pan. Repeat, but don't crowd the pan.
Use your spatula to move the bread in the pan so it doesn't stick. After about 4-5 minutes, flip the bread. The French toast should be golden brown and crisp on both sides.
Repeat with remaining batter and bread. Top finished French toast with maple syrup, powdered sugar, or berries.
Serving size is one piece of French toast. You maybe able to make more or less slices depending on the size of your bread.
