Why you'll love this recipe
- It's the best french toast made with plant milk, a vegan egg mixture, sugar, a touch of vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon.

Making french toast without milk and eggs is so simple! Here's what you'll need:
- Bread: Opt for a thick-cut sourdough or other rustic bread. I prefer sourdough for its tangy taste and the texture holds up well to the creamy custard.
- JUST Egg scramble: We're going to use this awesome egg replacer for french toast!
- Dairy free milk: Use any unsweetened and unflavored non dairy milk as a milk substitute in french toast. I typically use oat milk, almond milk, or soy milk for a delicious dairy free french toast.
- Sugar: Check the label to ensure it's vegan-friendly!
- Vanilla: Just a drop!
- Cinnamon: This gives our french toast a warm cozy flavor.
- Plant based butter: Use your favorite vegan butter.
What is Just Egg?
Just Egg is a plant based substitute for scrambled eggs. You cook it in a pan and it scrambles perfectly in just minutes.
It's a great egg substitute for French toast. It also works well for vegan omelets, quiche, and to use as a binder when baking.
Wondering what it's made of? Just Egg's main ingredients are mung bean, water and oil. It gets that bright yellow color from turmeric.
Where to buy
Find Just Egg at your local grocery store or online here! I typically grab a bottle on sale at Kroger or Sprouts Farmers Market, near the egg and dairy section.
How to make just egg french toast
In a mixing bowl, whisk together Just Egg, dairy free milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, quickly soak each slice of bread. Once the skillet is warm, brush with a little vegan butter or oil spray.
Tap excess batter off each slice and place in skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until browned. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings!

What to serve with vegan french toast
There are endless french toast topping ideas, but here are a handful of my favorites:
- Keep it classic and top your egg free French toast with a pat of plant based butter and maple syrup.
- Dust some powdered sugar over the top!
- Top with fresh berries, nuts, sliced banana, or coconut whipped cream for a real treat.
I prefer fresh french toast straight from the skillet, however you can meal prep a large batch ahead of time for a quick breakfast.
How to store leftovers
Let the french toast cool completely. Store in an airtight bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
How to reheat
To keep the french toast crispy, reheat in a toaster oven. Alternatively, you can reheat leftover french toast in the microwave.
Frequently asked questions
If your bread is not quite stale, bake it in the oven at 300F for about 15 minutes to help dry out.
I love sourdough french toast but other favorites include brioche or a french baguette.
This recipe can be made with any dairy free milk you choose. Use any unsweetened and unflavored plant milk. I typically use oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk.
Follow the recipe as stated, but use your favorite gluten-free bread. JUST Egg is not only vegan but also non-GMO, egg-free, gluten-free, and contains 5 grams of protein per serving.
French toast can become soggy when it's soaked for too long or if the bread is cut too thin.
Soak time will depend on the thickness and type of bread used. The thicker the slices, the longer the bread needs to soak. However, in general we're just trying to get a quick coating on the bread so no longer than 1 minute on each side.
Serve french toast with a pat of vegan butter, seasonal fruit, and maple syrup.
