  • ½ loaf sliced hearty bread
  • 5 eggs
  • juice of one orange + zest for topping
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil


  • Preheat coconut oil in a large skillet to medium heat. In a flat large bowl whisk the eggs. Add in the rest of the ingredients and whisk until incorporated.
  • Place a slice of bread into the mixture and allow to soak for about 2 minutes and flip it to the other side. If your bread is thicker, it may need a bit more time to soak, you just want to ensure that the mixture goes into the bread and doesn’t just sit on top.
  • Place the bread slice on the skillet and cook on each side until golden brown, approximately 3 minutes. Repeat this for all the slices until the egg mixture is gone.
  • Serve warm with orange zest, maple syrup, and fresh berries.
