This recipe for Paleo French Toast tastes just like traditional French toast, but is grain free, dairy free, fluffy, and delicious; made with coconut milk, our Fluffy Paleo White Bread, eggs, vanilla extract and sweetened with maple syrup. OK, I’ll say it…this recipe is just awesome – it reminds me of brunches at my parent’s house. Sunday brunches around the holidays or when we’re all home (which is rare) are always the best. I think that’s the thing about going Paleo that I don’t want to lose for when we have kids, you know? The tradition of it all. There are no tricks or tips here, just a lower heat and patience!
So yesterday we had a little date night and went out for drinks and a movie. We watched The World’s End, which was exactly as you would expect – entertaining, but definitely not something you watch if you want to take away something from a flick. The ending was a little overstated too, but entertaining. Today, we’re trying to catch up with some much needed gardening, as we’ve really let that go over the last few weeks of traveling. We’re also planning on going to Alabama in October to go to my cousin’s wedding, so we’ve got to plan that as well. Oh, and we have to work on our PR for the new book! It’s out for pre-order right now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble! Go check it out! New recipes that we’re NOT publishing online!! Woot!
Recipe: Paleo French Toast
- First, make our super fantastic Fluffy Paleo White Bread according to the instructions on our website. If you use a different recipe, we can’t guarantee it will taste as awesome as it will with ours.
- While the bread is baking, in a bowl big enough to dip the bread without bending, combine the coconut milk, eggs, and vanilla extract and stir until incorporated.
- Heat a large pan over medium-high (~6.5) heat. If you are using coconut oil, add it after the pan is hot. If you have some reserved bacon fat and want to use it instead (which would be delicious), you can just heat the pan with the fat in it. The reason for that is that coconut oil will start to turn brown and the flavor will change. You want to heat it up and then quickly use it.
- Once the fat is hot, dip a slice of bread into the batter mixture so that it coats both sides. Then place the bread in the fat. Do this until the pan is full with slices. Flip when the sides start to brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
- Serve with fresh fruit or Paleo Strawberry Jam!
- This recipe is Vegetarian!
