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.
