How to Make French Toast Without Eggs


  • 6 bread slices with about 1-inch of thickness
  • 1 cup 240 milliliters milk: We used 2% but you can use whole or any non-dairy milk like almond milk or soy milk
  • 1/3 cup 50 grams cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black salt
  • 3 tablespoons 36 grams of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons 56 to 84 grams of unsalted butter
  • Optional
  • Fresh fruit for serving
  • Pure maple syrup for serving
  • Confectioner’s or powdered sugar for dusting


  • Make the Batter: Use a shallow baking dish to mix the milk, vanilla extract, nutritional yeast, black salt, sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch to create the batter. Make sure that the cornstarch is well-mixed otherwise, it’ll settle on the bottom.
  • Dip the Bread: After making the batter, dip the bread in it. Don’t forget to turn the slice in order to coat both sides evenly.
  • Fry the Bread: Heat two tablespoons of butter (or use cooking spray if you prefer) in your non-stick pan over medium temperature and fry the bread slices that you dipped in the batter until they get golden brown color. Make sure you set your pan on medium heat and let it warm before placing a slice. Each side takes about 3 to 4 minutes to cook.
  • Add Toppings: Once you have transferred your French toast to a plate, top them with optional toppings such as maple syrup and butter and/or dust with confectioners or powdered sugar. Peaches, strawberries, and blueberries also work great. You can switch these optional topping ingredients up each time you make this delicious recipe.
  • Bon Appetit: Now you are set and ready to enjoy your French toast without eggs. While eating, you’ll notice that these eggless French toast taste similar to the traditional ones if you have eaten them before. It means that no one will even notice that the batter you used didn’t have eggs.
