This ingenious recipe uses aquafaba (liquid from soaked beans), orange zest, and cinnamon to make French toast that’s soft, thick and eggy. Yum!!



    • 1 ½ cup unsweetened, unflavored plant milk
    • ½ cup almond flour
    • 1 cup aquafaba
    • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 pinches of salt (optional)
    • ½ tablespoon orange zest (from half an orange)
    • 8 whole-grain bread slices (about ¾ inches thick)


    • 4.5 ounces (about 1 cup) blueberries or raspberries (fresh, or frozen and thawed)
    • ½ cup applesauce
    • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup


    1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet.
    2. Combine the plant milk, flour, aquafaba, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt (if using) in a bowl and stir until the mixture is smooth. Transfer to a shallow pan. Stir in the orange zest and mix well.
    3. Warm a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Dip each bread slice into the mixture and let soak for a few seconds. Turn over and soak for a few seconds more. Place in the skillet and cook over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over gently, then cook the other side for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown.
    4. Place the toast on the wire rack and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until crisp.
    5. Combine berries, applesauce, and maple syrup in a blender and pulse until sauce reaches a chunky consistency.
    6. Serve the french toast warm with the berry compote.
