Crunchy Eggless French Toast

You’re probably thinking how is this Eggless French Toast possible?! Well it is! I woke up this past Sunday morning with a sudden craving for french toast. I’m usually more of a home fries, cheesy-omlette type of person, but I can use a little bit of sweet-stickyness from time to time! So I decided why not make french toast, but healthier, crunchier and eggless?

Hence the birth of Crunchy Eggless French Toast. I combine creamy fat-free half&half with fresh nutmeg and cinnamon and crunchy rolled oats.

Wait, I completely forgot to mention- my brand new Le Cresuet grill pan. Amazing!!! It made my french toast crispy, golden and cooked to perfection! I think I’m obsessed with my new pan :).

Crunchy Eggless French Toast:

  • 6-8 slices of hearty white, wheat or anything you like (I used Pepperidge Farm Country White Bread)
  • 2 cup oats (I used Quaker Oats Brand)
  • 1 1/2 cups light/dark brown sugar (I used Domino Brand)
  • 1-2 cups fat-free Half&Half (I used Land-O-Lakes Brand)
  • 1/2-1 cup milk (I used Skim Plus or Soy Milk)
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 1-2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • maple syrup- for serving
  • powdered sugar- garnishing
  • whip cream- garnishing/optional
  • PAM Butter Flavor

Tools: Griddle Pan

1. In a shallow bowl/plate add milk and half&half and whisk in nutmeg and cinnamon. In another plate combine brown sugar and oats, and mix well making sure to break up the sugar.

2. Heat the grill pan on high to medium heat and spray with PAM Butter Flavor. Dip the bread into the milk mixture for 1 second- do it really quickly making sure not to completely soak the bread. You just want it to be moistened for the crunchy oats to stick, and the cinnamon and nutmeg to seep in. Then coat with the oats-sugar mixture, pressing in making sure its thouroughly covered.

3. Place on the hot griddle pan and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.

Try to flip only 1-2 times max. Remove and cut in fourths. Top with maple syrup and a generous amount of powdered sugar. Serve with whipcream and fresh berries. Dig in. MMM.

  1. This french toast looks very inviting. Love the addition of the oatmeal for crunch! This is certainly a breakfast I wouldn’t mind waking up to :o)

  2. I made this for my 3 year old daughter who is allergic to eggs and she loved it! I was a little skeptical to try it myself but it is fabulous! Before she was born we would eat french toast every weekend and I can’t tell you how much we have missed it. Thank you for sharing this recipe and putting french toast back on our menu!
