SO HOW'D IT GO?

oh man, these were awesome! just like I remember eggy french toast, but even better because it's been so long since I've had any.  I left out the oil and halved the nutmeg.  I was a little apprehensive when they were cooking because the batter tasted pretty gross, but they ended up tasting so good. Mine weren't soggy at all; I don't think I did anything special, they just turned out that way. I can't wait to have more stale bread so I can make them again!

Yum Yum! I replaced the oil, sugar and spices with one tablespoon of apple butter (I halved the recipe), and my french toast sticks turned out beautifully. And I looooove the almond extract in this!

I love breakfast recipes that don't require a lot of vigilance, because, let's face it, I'm just not awake enough to make anything complicated in the morning.  This recipe is really simple and so yummy, and requires so little of each ingredient that you're practically guaranteed to have everything on hand. 

My only adjustment was to add just a pinch of nutmeg instead of measuring it, since other reviews seemed to say it was too strong.  Using a pinch gave the french toast sticks a good flavor without overpowering them.  It's been a while since I've had omni french toast but this was just as good as I remember.  Thanks for the recipe!

These were really good. I've tryed other vegan french toast recipes, but they never worked. These were even better then regular french toast used to be!

This was relly good!
I used an old french bagette, so I didn't cut it into sticks. :p

Best vegan french toast thusfar! I used stale "Outrageously Easy Big Bread," cut into 4 1-inch slices. I used almond milk, vanilla extract, half the oil, arrowroot starch for the cornstarch, and pumpkin pie spice for the nutmeg. I cooked them over low heat for a long time to avoid the "soggy french toast" dilemma, and then baked them in the oven at 350 while I made the rest. This resulted in truly crunchy french toast.

This recipe is so much better than regular, nonvegan french toast. It was crispy on the outside with a warm, soft center. The sticks were scrumptious as is -- no syrup needed! It reminded me of a churro.

Terrific and kid-friendly on-the-go breakfast that will make your taste buds happy!!

oh, boy.  this is so much better then the soggy, eggy mess usually called french toast.  i threw in some ener-g (just to be sure) and omitted the oil and nutmeg; cooked it in a bit of earth balance.  and katica really knows where it's at-- no sogginess if you be patient and let the bread cook slowly.

I made two batches and each time I lightly toasted the bread and I left out the nutmeg... Because well I really don't enjoy the taste of it very much. The first batch I thought was a little bland so I doubled the amount of sugar (2T.) and let my brother have at them. Oh and I had enough batter to coat six pieces of bread and my brother gobbled up every last one of them because he thought they were so good.

So far the best vegan french toast recipe I've come across. Not only did it taste like traditional french toast, it also didn't require any extra ingredients like chickpea flour or egg replacer. I used 4 day old (homemade) french bread that was in the fridge and cooked it on medium-high so it was crispy outside. I'd totally make this again. I think next time I will omit the nutmeg and replace it with a touch of cloves and some allspice.
