Spelt and Cultured Coconut Yogurt French Toast

A Dairy free option for a lazy weekend morning brunch. Quick and easy and comforting leaving lots of time for cuddling with the kids and recovering from a busy week. Sound good?

This is NOT a sugar free recipe, but it is low in added sugar. The only sugar that it has is what is in the coconut yogurt and if you add any maple syrup when serving. I used Organic Spelt bread and as a matter of fact, that is the only bread I can tolerate at the moment. (I am carbohydrate intolerant for those who don't know)

Lazy Morning Coconut French Toast

(Serves Two)


2 Slices of Gluten Free, No sugar added bread
2 eggs
1/4 cup Egg Whites
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 dollops of Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt
Coconut oil or whatever you use to grease your pan. 

  1. Place egg and cultured coconut milk yogurt in a shallow bowl together with the cinnamon.
  2. Add  Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt and blend with your stick blender until smooth.
  3. Dip bread in mixture, turning once and place in preheated pan on the stove on medium. 
  4. Turn once per slice.
  5. While waiting for those to cook, chop raw almonds and wash blueberries, set the table, play some music and enjoy the experience.
  6. Serve to your hungry crew and they will not even know it is a healthier version of the traditional recipe. And yes, dairy free. If you can find a cultured coconut milk that has not been sweetened then it will be sugar free too.
  7. Please note, if you have allergies or intolerance check the ingredient lists on EVERYTHING!


My advice is to take time to sit down with your family MOM and enjoy the meal. As women and moms we tend to take care of everyone else first and then eat while cleaning, while getting up to get the milk or whatever else our little ones need. Train them to wait for you or get it themselves.Take time to slow down and savour each bite. The housework can wait! You are a mom and you need to honor yourself so that you can be the best mom you can be. No that is not being selfish, that is taking care of yourself so that you are fulfilled, happy and able to pour out your heart for your family and your friends. You can't do that when you are empty right?
