Wild orange and cassia gluten free coconut French toast´╗┐

This is the best French toast, and so so easy. We use gluten free bread because of food allergies and coconut milk gives this the perfect sweet touch while keeping it dairy free!


Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 loaf gluten free bread (or bread of your choice)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 small cans of organic coconut cream 
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • Dash vanilla extract
  • 2 drops doTERRA wild orange essential oil
  • 2 drops doTERRA cassia essential oil

Mix all ingredients (except for the bread)? in a stand mixer and blend until smooth. Soak each piece of bread in mixture until coated and pan fry in coconut oil. 

For an extra sweet treat, top with cream cheese and maple syrup!

It’s that easy. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread with Wild Orange Glaze

slightly adapted from this awesome recipe from Brandie at http://www.spoonandsaucer.com/gluten-free-pumpkin-bread/?crlt.pid=camp.ySpC6lN1AjBf

I honestly would LOVE to make this again with her eggnog glaze, but the SO Delicious coconut eggnog that I love is not easily available here, so I may have to wait until we go out of town and then bring a cooler to stock up (it’s worth it, folks).Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 1.54.33 PM

* This recipe is a double batch because you will be MAD if you make only one loaf. Trust me.
