Coconut French Toast

Unless you are in a flying rush in the morning, this is well worth it. Also see the recipe for Coconut Bread.

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 5 mins

Serves: 1


  1. Whisk the eggs very well and place in a flat bowl.
  2. Heat a frying pan with the butter to a medium heat.
  3. Soak the bread in the egg mixture for a few second on either side, so that the egg is sucked into the bread.
  4. Fry the bread until golden on both sides.
  5. To make the coulis/compote, place the berries in a pan with the xylitol and bring to simmer (the berries should release their own liquid – no need to add water). For a compote, leave the berries whole. For a coulis, simply puree the mixture using a food processor or a stick blender.
  6. Serve the French toast with the coulis, almonds and yoghurt
