Dairy Free French Toast

20130313-112237.jpgDo you have some bread that needs to be used up? Possibly some homemade bread a couple of days old that might be a little too dry for your liking? Why not make some French Toast? That is exactly what we had for breakfast this morning. Instead of using cows milk, I subbed coconut milk and cooked them on the griddle with coconut oil. I also sliced up some whole wheat bread that I made the other day to use as my base. Yum-o…that is all I have to say. As did my 4-year-old who, while I was in the process of making them, said she didn’t like French toast. She surely changed her tune!

Dairy Free French Toast
{makes enough for approximately 12 pieces of French Toast…depending on how long you soak your bread for}

8 eggs
4 1/2 – 5 T brown sugar
2-3 t cinnamon {start off with the 2 teaspoons – after dipping some pieces, you may need to sprinkle and stir more cinnamon in the mixture}
2 t vanilla
1/2 c coconut milk
Bread slices to dip in mixture

*Add eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla to a shallow bowl. Whisk well. Add coconut milk and mix in well.



Heat a griddle to 325 degrees {or a skillet on med-high heat}. Grease with coconut oil. Have sliced bread ready to dip.


Give egg mixture a quick mix before starting the bread-dipping process. Dip bread in mixture and allow it to soak up liquid a bit – flip piece over and repeat.



Place pieces of uncooked French toast on hot, greased griddle/skillet and cook a few minutes until first side is golden brown. Flip and cook until golden on the other side.



Sprinkle with powdered sugar and drizzle with maple syrup, if desired. Eat and enjoy!
