French Toast Bake

  • 1 loaf Gluten Free Bread cubed
  • 1 can Coconut Milk full fat
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 1.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg

Streusel Topping

  • 3 Tbls Ghee softened
  • 1 cup Pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 2 Tbls Gluten Free Flour I use Bobs Red Mill
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  • Preheat oven to 350' and cut the bread up into cubes
  • Grease a 14x9 oval casserole dish (or 9x13 rectangle) with ghee or avocado oil spray and lay the bread cubes in the bottom of the dish
  • In a bowl, whisk the coconut milk, eggs, vanilla extract, maple syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined. Pour mixture over the bread and let sit for at least 10 minutes. Make sure all the bread is coated with the custard mixture
  • While the bread is absorbing the custard mixture, you can prepare the streusel
    Add all the streusel ingredients into a small bowl and use hands to mix and press together
  • After the bread has had time to absorb the custard, you can add the topping all over the casserole. Then cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes
  • After the 30 minutes, remove the foil and bake an additional 30 minutes
  • Let casserole cool before serving
