There is nothing like a tasty and relaxing Breakfast in Bed on Mothers Day!!??
Well I wish I could say that was the start to my day.
My husband got called in to the hospitl at 2 AM and I had the fun task of bathing 3 kids, getting them dressed for church, and having to actually do my hair today - all before 8:30 AM!
Lets just say there was a lot of crying and yelling. Ugh - we all said sorry and eventually got over it, but my Coconut French Toast was on the back of my mind all morning.
...Way would have trumped my Larabar for breakfast!
Drizzled with a tiny bit of Pure Maple Syrup (you gotta give somewhere right?)
and topped with your fruit of choice; this crunchy, toasted goodness will soon become your favorite!
And what can go wrong with Coconut? Right?
SIMPLE, IMPRESSIVE, TASTY, AND GOOD FOR YOU!
1/4 C kefir, or buttermilk
2-3 Tbl almond or regular milk
1 tsp almond or coconut extract
Unsweetened shredded coconut (put in food processor to dice small)
1-2 Tbl coconut palm sugar or sugar (optional!!)
5-6 Slices of slightly stale/old Whole Wheat Bread.
(This is amazing on Great Harvests' Honey Whole Wheat, but that is candy in our house and I rarely buy it. Sprouted Whole Grain Bread, is my bread of choice. (TJ has a great option sweetened with DATES!))
Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, milk, and extract. In separate bowl mix coconut and Sugar (if using). Turn on heat on a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Dredge each slice of bread in egg mixture. I even let it sit there while each one cooks (about 2-3 minutes). Then dip bread in Coconut, covering both sides. Place on heated pan and don't touch for about 2 minutes. Flip to cook other side. It should appear lightly browned and toasted.
Top with larger pieces of coconut, walnuts, fruit, and maple syrup.
