This recipe is so easy it’s almost embarrassing. But who doesn’t love a ridiculously easy recipe? So here you go: super-easy, egg-free, cinnamon French toast.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3 to 4 servings
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon evaporated cane juice (can sub another granulated sugar)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk beverage
  • 6 to 8 slices thick, stale bread (see Bread Note below)
  • Dairy-free buttery spread and maple syrup, for serving
  1. In a shallow bowl or dish, whisk together the flour, evaporated cane juice, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk in the milk beverage until smooth.
  2. Preheat a nonstick pan or skillet over high heat.
  3. Dip each slice of bread into the mixture to coat with a thin layer.
  4. Place the bread into the pan and “toast” for about 2 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Flip and repeat. Repeat with remaining slices.
  5. Serve hot, smothered in dairy-free buttery spread and dark maple syrup.
Bread Note: Stale bread is strongly recommended in this recipe as fresh bread makes the toast soggy. If you don’t have stale bread, fake it by putting slices of fresh bread on a baking sheet and placing it in the oven at the lowest setting for about an hour.
