This is the most amazing french toast- my son is allergic to dairy and eggs and this is something that the whole family loves! Thank you!


Awesome recipe taste like the real thing.


This was pretty good. I just kind of eyeballed everything so it was really easy but I will definitely be trying this again using a better, heartier bread.


DELISH!! Even my fiance admitted to liking them A LOT and he is picky with french toast !


I've been searching for a good vegan breakfast besides cereal! This is it! Oh...this was goodddd! I have no soymilk or sugar so I just used water oil and honey and microwaved it until the honey melted, then added a flour mixture, sweetener, and cinnamon. I mixed then I spooned some of it on my bread then fried it on a oiled pan. It took some time and the insides were a little mush because of the water...but this is definately going to be a staple. I might even use the bread as sandwich bread because it is soo yummy. I sprinkled some sweetener on top smeared on some jam and had with cranberries. Yummy!


love this! delicious and simple!!  ;)b


This was really good.  It tastes better then nonvegan french toast.  I omited the sugar, used almond milk, and scaled the recipe down for 1 person.  :)  It had the perfect texture.


French toast was my favorite breakfast in my omni days.  I've seen vegan french toast recipes, but I've just never tried them.  (I was skeptical that they would taste anywhere near right without eggs.)  These were very, very good.  It's been a long time, but they taste exactly how I remember frest toast tasting.  I used fresh, thinly sliced sourdough.  (That's what I had.)  I only had plain soymilk, so I add a couple drops of vanilla.  Served with powdered sugar, earth balance and maple syrup.  Mmmmm. 

As far as the trouble people have had with this recipe, there are a couple things that I know people do wrong when making any french toast, vegan or otherwise. 

1.  Stale bread works better.  If you bread is fresh, toast it on the lightest setting of the toaster before proceeding. 
2.  Do NOT soak the bread in the "egg" mixture. Put it in, turn it and put it directly on the pan.  If you allow the mixture to saturate the bread, it will be mushy, fall apart, and stick. 
3.  Cook on low until brown.  If your pan is too hot, the center will be mushy. 

I hope that helps.  Thanks for this awesome recipe!  Definte comfort food for me and so easy.


I just tried it. It was pretty yummy, though I only 'eyeballed' the quantities, and halved the recipe (as it was just for me). I think I put in too much flour, as the toasts were a bit like bread coated in crepe. I used a day old wholemeal, grain loaf, and that worked - they neither fell abort nor stuck to the pan (much). Definitely cooking low and slow is the way to go. Next time I'll put in more cinnamon, soak the bread a bit more in thinner batter, and get people to help me eat it - it made lots!!


I have been craving French toast since finally swearing off eggs a few months ago. This was just what I wanted! I'm not a big fan of measuring, so I can't accurately say how much of anything I used but instead of soy milk I used plain rice milk (staying away from too much soy!) and added some vanilla extract. It turned out great, but I will probably throw it in the toaster oven for a few minutes next time - it was a tad soggy in the middle, but I like it that way:) My skeptical egg-eating friend had a bite - and then wished he'd agreed to let me make him some!
