We can’t believe we were finally able to add a vegan and gluten-free french toast to our breakfast rotation.
How to make french toast without wheat, eggs, soy and milk?
If you haven’t tried Just Egg, we highly recommend this versatile egg replacement product. We used this for the base of our eggless custard french toast. Just Egg is made from mung beans. Mung beans are a protein-rich legume and highly versatile, often used for soups or stews, and a staple of Asian diets.
Just Egg contains 5g of plant-based protein per serving (similar content of chicken egg for equal volume) and is dairy-free and egg-free for people with egg allergies.
For our bread we used Atlanta based Pure Knead bread company. They are an 8 allergen free (Gluten Free • Dairy/Casein Free • Egg Free • Fish Free • Peanut Free • Soy Free • Shellfish Free • Tree Nut Free • Vegan) bread company. They make bread, hamburger and hot dog buns that are light with no real gritty mouth feel.
We are really happy with the way this vegan gluten-free french toast turned out. And to top it off it’s soy and dairy-free also. We are excited we found both of these products and are excited to start trying some new vegan french toast flavor combos, thinking cardamon + ginger.
Enjoy this fast and easy french toast recipe. No one will be the wiser about this delicious allergy-friendly vegan, gluten-free, egg and soy free.
