French Toast Casserole


  • 8 slices of thick-cut bread (I like sourdough, challah or whole-grain)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (plus more for topping)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil


  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs, almond milk, orange juice, vanilla, almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup.
  • Place half of the mixture into a shallow dish. Add bread 4 slices at a time and allow to soak for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Cook over medium heat with coconut oil for 2-3 minutes per side or until cooked until desired taste.
  • Repeat with the remaining 4 slices and egg mixture.
  • Serve immediately with maple syrup, fruit or toppings of choice.
