I am a mom of 4. I love to cook and try new recipes.
Every once in awhile a new recipe is tried and the family often responds with "mom..it's a keeper" meaning add this one to the family recipe book. So here I've compiled them all in one spot so they're easy to get to and add to. Hope you enjoy them as much as we have, and maybe they'll be keepers for you as well.

Christmas 2014 - Coconut French Toast with Coconut Syrup

Overnight Coconut French Toast

French Toast has always been a Christmas tradition for our family.  However, with all of our family allergies I knew it was going to be a little bit of a challenge.  This turned out incredible! Gluten free, Vegan, Egg Free and Soy free!  Our new Christmas Morning french toast recipe.

1 loaf of Udi's GF bread, remove crust and cut into 1" cubes
3 T. chia seeds (whole or ground into a fine meal)
1 (15 oz) can coconut milk (chilled over night)
1 1/2 c. coconut milk or non dairy milk of choice
1 c. coconut

Coconut buttermilk syrup
1/2 c. vegan butter
3/4 c. coconut sugar
1/2 c. Probiotic Coconut water (Good Belly brand)
1 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. coconut extract

rub  9x13 with coconut oil.  place cubed bread inside.  
in a large bowl beat chia seeds, with non-dairy milk, remove coconut cream from top of chilled coconut milk can and place in bowl.  mix until mixed well.
Pour mix over bread cubes and press bread cubes down to coat all of them.
cover and refrigerate overnight.

Buttermilk syrup:  combine butter, sugar and probiotic coconut water in a saucepan.  heat until sugar dissolves.  Then remove from heat and add baking soda and coconut extract.  stir to combine.  serve warm.  

preheat oven 350.  sprinkle coconut flakes over french toast.  bake uncovered 30-35 min.  serve with buttermilk syrup.
