This egg white french toast is a wonderful addition to breakfast. Whether you're trying to eat healthier or simply trying to use up egg whites that you may have on hand, this recipe comes in handy.
We love eating french toast around here, but making things a little healthier is always a bonus.
We've been reducing some cholesterol in our lives and always seem to have a carton of egg whites on hand, so I've been experimenting with new ways to use them up.
This recipe is actually an adaption of my Sourdough French Toast recipe. Made with any sliced bread you may have in the pantry. It's delicious and easy.
Why This Recipe Works
- It's simple. Made with some basic pantry staple ingredients, this recipe comes together pretty easily and quickly.
- It tastes great with any side breakfast side dish. We usually serve our egg white french toast with a side of fresh fruit and turkey bacon, but feel free to try other breakfast favorites too. The sky's the limit here!
- It's healthier. Made with almond milk and egg whites, we really reduce a lot of calories, cholesterol, and saturated fats. You can even use low-carb or whole-wheat bread if desired.
Egg Whites- You can use liquid egg whites from a carton or actual eggs with the yolks removed.
Almond milk- Any milk will work just fine, but almond milk is much lower in calories which works well if you're dieting.
Cinnamon- For added warmth and spice, we love to add ground cinnamon to our breakfast routine.
Vanilla- Add in some vanilla extract for a delicious flavor experience.
Sliced bread- I like to keep things simple with some sliced sandwich bread, but feel free to use any sliced bread you have on hand.
Olive oil- This is just needed for reading the pan or griddle. It encourages browning on the outsides of the french toast while helping it not to stick to the pan. Avocado spray oil also works too, if you have it on hand.

Check out how to make egg white french toast with these simple step-by-step instructions:
Add the egg whites, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla to a pie plate.
Whisk until well combined.
Preheat your skillet or griddle to medium-high heat (about 350 degrees F).
Spray your pan with butter to make it nonstick.
Dip a piece of bread into the egg mixture.
Flip it to coat the other side.
Cook the bread for about 2-3 minutes per side in your heated pan until golden brown.
Serve with fresh fruits and maple syrup.
🍴 Recipe Tips
Do not allow your bread to soak for too long. This mixture is pretty wet, so a quick dip and coating on both sides is all that is needed.
If you allow the bread to rest in the egg white mixture for too long, it will become very soggy and try to fall apart when lifted.
⏲️ Make Ahead Instructions
You can freeze your french toast on a baking sheet for one hour until solid and then transfer to an airtight container for up to 2 months—reheat before serving.
Your leftover french toast can be kept stored in a Ziploc bag in the fridge for up to 4 days. Warm in the microwave before eating or eat it cold if desired.
🥗 Side Dishes
You can serve this french toast recipe with just about any breakfast side dish, or even none at all.
Our favorite breakfast side dishes include Hashbrowns, fresh fruit, orange juice, and bacon.
Turkey bacon is one of our go-to options because it's cheaper and more likely to be in stock at our local grocery store.
One fo the biggest mistakes when making french toast is not thoroughly mixing together the eggs and milk. This leaves long stringy bits of eggwhite throughout the batter and gives the french toast more of a
"scrambled egg" taste. To correct this, I recommend using a whisk instead of a fork to blend the mixture, or running it through the blender for a few pulses.
Adding milk to the french toast mixture helps to soften the bread and give a more custard-like consistency in the center, and it helps to coat the bread.
If your french toast is soggy, it could be that you either oversoaked the bread or that you had too high of a temperature on your pan, resulting in cooked outsides and raw centers.
