Eggy bread or French Toast as it’s also known is a firm favourite in our home. This is my twist on the original, making it a high in protein, calcium and fibre boosting meal.
As Gracie is dairy-free, I don’t use milk to mix in with the eggs I use a secret ingredient… Vitasoy Coconut Milk! Unlike the majority of other non-dairy forms of milk, this one doesn’t contain a rice filler in it. Rice came up really high in Grace’s food intolerance testing and we’re yet to reintroduce it.
I also sneak in a sprinkle of Flaxseed meal. Our Doctor recommended adding it into meals when we can as it’s high in dietary fibre and good for her bowels (please seek medical advice before making big changes to your child’s diet).
Eggy Bread - Dairy FreePrint Recipe
- 2 Organic/Free-range eggs
- 2 slices of your chosen bread (we use Spelt)
- Coconut Milk
- Flaxseed Meal
Mix the eggs, a dash of coconut milk and a sprinkle of flaxseed meal together
Soak the slices of bread in the mixture until nicely absorbed
Pan fry the egg soaked bread until nicely golden on each side
To make a more sweeter version you can add a dash of Vanilla Essence and top with chosen fruits, honey or maple syrup.
