Substituting for eggs with a few simple ingredients, you can make a delicious Eggless French Toast at home!

Eggless French Toast Recipe

French Toast is a relatively new concept in our household. That’s only because we are lacto-vegetarians and we don’t eat eggs.

You know I’m an Indian, right? That means I’d like a hot Indian breakfast over a sandwich or a bowl of cereal. Don’t cringe. Our breakfasts are just as healthy (or even more) that “processed” cereal. 😉

But then, I’d be lying if I say I’m a sucker for all things healthy.

If that were the case, I wouldn’t be desperately buying every workout video on the planet hoping that “watching” them would knock of a few pounds! 😛

But all things aside, I’ve discovered the secret to making good ol’ French Toast – eggless!

Eggless French Toast Recipe

If you’ve had your French Toast the traditional way, dipped in an eggy batter – chances are you’ll find this quite different. It isn’t going to taste like that egg dipped crispy toast. But this Eggless French Toast is still delicious. And an acceptable substitute to the regular French Toast. 🙂

  1. I’m new to eggless meals since recently finding out my son was allergic. May be a stupid question but doesn’t the bread that you would use have egg in it??

  2. Looks amazing! I\’m so happy to finally find a good looking version of eggless french toast. Surely trying this one on the weekend!
