Almond Coconut Encrusted Baked French Toast
Alright, in all honesty this isn’t a magical super healthy recipe. It’s not vegan or gluten free, which is what I try to push my recipes toward. BUT it’s not unhealthy, it’s basically bread and egg, with tasty toppings. Plus, since I based this recipe off of something I ate in a restaurant once, and didn’t actually have a recipe to follow, I decided to try making it baked instead of fried – so there you go, my slightly healthy twist. Ingredients:
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 thick slices of bread
- ¼ cup coconut
- ¼ cup sliced almonds
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together, stir in the cinnamon and half of the coconut and almonds.
- Dip the bread into the egg mixture, letting it absorb, about 30 minutes
- Sprinkle the remaining coconut and almonds on top of each slice and pat down firmly so that they adhere to the egg mixture.
- Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, flipping half way through.
