Reasons to Love this Vegan French Toast Recipe:









What is Just Egg?

Just Egg is a plant-based liquid egg substitute that works perfectly in French toast (and tons of other dishes, too, like frittatas!). It is similar to eggs in both taste and texture.

The egg replacement is made from mung beans, a green legume mainly cultivated in Southeast Asia. In addition to having no cholesterol, Just Egg is only 70 calories per serving, and has 5 grams of protein and just 1 carb.

How to Make Vegan French Toast without Eggs or Flaxseed

First, cut bread into 3/4 inch – 1 inch slices if using a whole loaf.

Tips and Tricks

  • To avoid the French toast sticking to the pan or burning, it is important to:
    • use an non-stick pan
    • start with low to medium heat
    • use at least 1 tablespoon of plant-based butter for each round of pan frying
  • To keep French toast warm while cooking the remaining slices, heat oven or toaster oven on low (200 degrees) and place finished slices on baking sheet inside. Or, place in microwave and cover.


If you cannot find Just Egg, you can substitute with another plant-based alternative like the Trader Joe’s Simply Eggless. Or, if you prefer a more whole foods alternative, you can use 2 flax eggs or 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in place of the Just Egg.

  • serrated knife
  • wide dish
  • wisk or fork
  • nonstick pan
  • spatula


  • 8-10 slices thick bread* like french, sourdough, or brioche
  • 1 cup Just Egg
  • 3/4 cup plant milk of choice I prefer thicker milks like oat or cashew
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg optional
  • 2-3 tablespoons plant-based butter, divided for pan frying

Optional Toppings

  • maple syrup
  • fresh fruit (or jam)
  • plant-based whipped cream
  • vegan butter
  • nuts (or nut butter)


  • If using whole bread loaf, use serrated knife to cut bread into 3/4 inch – 1 inch thick slices.
  • Combine Just Egg, plant milk, syrup (or brown sugar), cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt, and vanilla in shallow, wide dish. Use wisk or fork to combine custard.
  • Place sliced bread into dish (typically I can fit about 3-4 slices at a time). Allow bread to soak for about 1 minute. Then flip slices to other side, and soak for 1 more minute.
  • While soaking second side, heat nonstick pan on low-medium heat. Place 1-1.5 tablespoons of butter in pan. Use spatula to spread melting butter around pan, being careful not to let it burn.
  • Remove bread from custard, allowing excess custard to drip off. Place in pan.
  • Cooking on low-medium heat for 2-3 minutes on first side until golden brown, checking after 90 seconds to avoid burning.
  • Flip to second side. Cook for about 2 additional minutes, checking again after 90 seconds (second side tends to cook more quickly than first).
  • Remove first batch of French toast from pan. Place in warm oven or microwave, covered, to slow cooling.
  • Let pan cool enough to wipe with paper towel to remove brown debris. Add more butter and repeat.
  • Top French Toast with fresh fruit, butter, maple syrup, or other toppings. Enjoy!



*Bread: Ideally bread slices are 3/4 inch to 1 inch thick. Can be store bought or cut from whole loaf. Recipe may use 8-10 slices, depending on size of bread overall.
Leftovers: Store leftovers in refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze in air tight container for up to 3 months. To enjoy leftovers, reheat in oven/toaster oven at 300 for 4-5 minutes…or enjoy cold!
