Description

An easy French toast recipe that's healthy and packed with flavor! Featuring a creamy coconut custard, high-fiber bread and heart-healthy olive oil.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup light canned coconut milk, unsweetened nut milk, or whole milk 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch cardamom, optional 
  • Pinch kosher salt 
  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 
  • 10 slices sprouted whole-grain bread
  • Berries, banana slices and/or pure maple syrup for serving 

Instructions

Heat oven to 200ºF (93ºC); line a baking sheet with a wire rack and set aside.

Beat eggs together in a large shallow dish or pie plate. Add coconut milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, cardamom (if using) and salt. 

Preheat a large (10 or 12-inch) nonstick skillet over medium for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, dip two slices of bread in custard mixture until soaked, about 15 seconds per side. 

Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to skillet and swirl to coat. Place soaked bread slices in preheated skillet over medium heat and cook until dark brown and no longer wet, about 3–4 minutes per side. 

Transfer French toast slices to prepared sheet and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining bread slices, custard mixture, and olive oil until all of the custard has been used. 

Serve with desired toppings, such as butter, berries, and maple syrup. 

Additional topping ideas include: bananas, nut butter, yogurt, cinnamon-sugar, whipped cream. 



Notes

If you’re cooking these on a large griddle, brush the griddle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cooking time will be much less (8 minutes total) since you can cook these all at once, not in batches. 

Freeze any leftover canned coconut milk for use in curries, smoothies, coffee and more.
