Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon coconut extract
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 6 slices of French bread, cut into ½ inch slices
  • Butter, maple syrup, and strawberries-for serving, if desired
  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, coconut extract, vanilla extract, and salt. Place the shredded coconut on a plate. Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture (let it really soak in to the bread). Dip both sides of the coated bread into the shredded coconut. Drizzle a little egg mixture on top of the coconut to make it stick to the bread.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan or a griddle to medium to medium-high heat. Cook the slices of bread until golden brown on one side and then turn and cook the other side. Serve immediately or keep French toast warm in a 250 degree F oven.
  3. Serve with butter (this doesn't really need it) and pure maple syrup.
