Gluten Free & Dairy Free Coconut French Toast

Not sure if you guys can tell but I LOVE breakfast foods, so when I find a yummy recipe I am always trying to convert it over to gluten free.  This french toast is a no brainer, it’s made with coconut milk, so its DAIRY FREE also!!

The only issue was finding a delicious, flaky, sweet golden brown brioche bread to use.  So instead of me reinventing the wheel I used a wonderful recipe for brioche bread that I found on Carol Kicinski’s site Simply Gluten Free.  I highly recommend her recipe for Gluten Free Brioche.

Enjoy and let me know your thoughts!

  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tsp. canola oil
  • 8 thick slices of your favorite Gluten-Free brioche or challah bread
  • 3 tbsp. sweetened shredded coconut
  • Mixed berries, for serving (whatever is in season- blueberries, raspberries or blackberries will do)
