Chocolate Sauce:

  • ½ cup vanilla unsweetened almond creamer
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ - ½ tsp ancho chili powder optional, to taste
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

French Toast:


  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Oil or butter of your choice for pan-frying


  • In a pie plate or baking dish, mix together flax meal, maple, almond creamer, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Set in fridge for 20 minutes.
  • While the flax egg mixture is thickening in the refrigerator, make the chocolate sauce. Heat the almond creamer in the microwave in 30 second intervals or in a small saucepan until simmering. Add the chocolate chips, cinnamon, maple, chili powder (if using) and salt and stir until the chocolate is melted. Set aside and keep warm.
  • In another plate or dish, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Submerge the bread into the flax egg mixture on both sides for 10 seconds per side
  • Heat a griddle or large nonstick pan with the oil or butter over medium heat. Add the bread and cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes. Immediately coat in the cinnamon sugar.
  • Serve warm with a drizzle of the chocolate sauce.



If you are skeptical about making French toast without eggs, I don't blame you! I was too. The most important step to making a flax or chia egg is to give it time to firm up and set in the fridge. There is a bit of a sweet spot though because if you set it too long (especially if you are using chia seeds), it can turn into a pudding consistency and we certainly don't want that. As a general rule of thumb aim to let the flax egg set for no longer than 20 mins, and the chia egg no longer than 15 mins.
