This eggless french toast recipe tastes just like the classic version. Each toast has light, airy middles, and a crispy, sweet crust. It is perfectly paired with the Homemade Blueberry Syrup. They are both vegan!

- 1 cup almond, or other dairy free
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch. I only used 1/2 tsp (that’s all I had), I doubled the flour instead
- 1 teaspoon flax seed
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup or 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6-8 slices thick quality white bread, such as ciabatta or French bread
- 2-3 tablespoons vegan butter, for grilling
- ½ cup sliced strawberries, or your favorite fruit. I used blueberries.
- Maple syrup, for serving. Pairs great with the Homemade Blueberry Syrup
- Powdered sugar, optional
- In a medium bowl or shallow pan combine the milk, cornstarch, flax seed, baking powder, vanilla, maple syrup/sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk until everything is combined and the flour & cornstarch is dissolved.
- Heat a large, nonstick pan over medium heat.
- Add a little bit of vegan butter/coconut oil to the pan over medium-high heat and melt. Whisk the batter again right before dipping bread, as the cornstarch will settle to the bottom of the bowl. Place one slice of bread into the milk mixture long enough to soak one side, then flip the bread and allow it to soak on the opposite side for an additional 3 seconds.
- Add the bread to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Add more vegan butter/oil to the pan as needed in between pieces of bread.
- Using a spatula, remove the brown french toast pieces and set aside. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
- Once cooked, top the slices with your favorite fruit, Homemade Blueberry Syrup (or other syrup), and powdered sugar, if using.
- Use any kind of sweetener as well.
- Stale bread works best for French toasts.
- Using butter will make the toasts tastier, but coconut oil is also delicious and healthier. Any kind of oil will work, though.
- Serve with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, vegan whipped cream, jam… And even with a tofu scramble (recipe coming in a future blog) for a delicious brunch.
