’Tis the season! I feel like the day after Thanksgiving my neighborhood goes into Holiday high gear. Literally every single house in my neighborhood is already decked out with holiday decorations, trees, Santas on the roof. I’m over here trying to recover from Thanksgiving lol.

Today is as good as any day to get the party started! I’m starting easy, grooving into the holiday season with breakfast. For this post, I teamed up with JUST and their new product JUST Egg. I used it over the summer, remember? It’s a product that truly blows my mind because it’s made from mung beans and yet it tastes just like eggs (texture and flavor). It’s wild!

You can add it to a skillet and it’ll scramble exactly like chicken eggs. It’s plant-based, packed with protein and completely free of dairy, cholesterol, artificial flavoring.

In this instance, we’re using it to make French toast. And it couldn’t be more simple. You simply squeeze out the JUST Egg into a dish and whisk it with the French toast usuals: vanilla, cinnamon and a little bit of sugar.

To make it a lil’ bit more interesting, I made a cranberry maple syrup that is SO good. It gives some real holiday-type vibes while adding a nice tart and sweet element to the French toast.

Plant-Based French Toast Recipe

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes
Servings: 4
This plant-based french toast has speckles of vanilla topped with simmered cranberries.


  • 1 non-stick skillet


Cranberry Maple Syrup:

  • 10- ounce bag of cranberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla paste
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Zest and juice from 1 orange, about 3 tablespoons

French Toast:

  • 1 loaf of bread, I used a French loaf, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 cup JUST Egg 
  • 1/2 cup almond milk 
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil or butter 
  • Powdered sugar, for topping


To Make the Cranberry Maple Syrup:

  • To a medium saute pan, add the cranberries, sugar, maple syrup, water, vanilla, salt and orange juice and zest. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and allow to cook until softened and bubbling, about 10 minutes. I like to give it a stir every few minutes to make sure nothing is burning at the very bottom. Remove from heat and set aside. 

To Make the French Toast:

  • To a casserole dish or a bowl, whisk together the JUST Egg, almond milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. 
  • Place a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the oil or butter. When warm, dip the slices of bread into the JUST egg mixture, letting any excess of the mixture drip off back into the dish. Transfer to the pan and cook until golden brown on each side, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining slices of bread. 
  • Dust with a bit of powdered sugar and serve with a few spoonfuls of the cranberry maple syrup on top.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious! I made it for brunch today with some St. Pierre Brioche bread and oh my goodness, I was in heaven! I rarely treat myself to pancakes or french toast but your recipe is definitely going to become a staple. I have got to have these at least once a week now, LOL! Thank you!

    Oh, I’m going to post some pics and Insta and tag you!!

    1. ahh i LOVE st. pierre brioche. their buns/brioche are SO good. love that this worked for you yay!

  2. I saw this recipe in my inbox, actually not knowing that it was plant-based for some reason! I guess the e-mail didn’t include the plant-based indication, but once I found out, I was absolutely ECSTATIC! French toast was always a favorite indulgence breakfast of mine that I have not enjoyed in months. Utilizing a thick bread with some hearty form of eggs and milk is critical for a quality French toast–I’ve never tried the JUST egg product, but I really want to now! I’m so happy it worked for you. Hopefully more people will cook with plant-based eggs than real ones for the environmental, ethical, and health benefits of veganism!
