Keywords: egg, breakfast, sweet, bread

Serves: 3

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Equipment: bowl, fork, skillet or frying pan, knife


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk 
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon
  • 6 to 8 slices of bread (a thicker white bread or brioche are great options, or go for a healthier sprouted whole grain bread)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, plus more if necessary
  • ½ banana
  • ⅓ cup of berries


  1. In a shallow bowl, add your eggs and slightly whisk them.
  2. Add almond milk or coconut milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract, and cinnamon, then whisk again. 
  3. Dunk a slice of bread gently in the egg mixture and then flip to ensure both sides are coated; do not leave bread in the mixture for too long (10 to 15 seconds max.).
  4. Add one tablespoon of butter to a skillet and place it over medium heat.
  5. Place dunked slices on the hot skillet and cook until golden brown on each side. Repeat with more slices. You should be able to make at least six slices. 
  6. Top with berries, banana slices, and any other toppings.


  • For a healthier option, change the bread to something like ezekiel bread or whole wheat buns.
  • Try using different oils, such as coconut oil, instead of butter.
  • Use a variety of toppings, such as greek yogurt, berries, strawberries, etc. to change it up.
  • You can reduce the sugar by half if desired.


  • Ideally, you should consume right after cooking but this can be kept in the fridge for one to two days. 
  • This recipe can be frozen and reheated later in the microwave or oven.
