Want a lighter version to an old favorite? Fiber-rich eggplant substituted for bread makes this unconventional French toast nourishing and fulfilling.

Ingredients (French Toast)

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Ingredients (Toppings)

  • 2 dollops tahini or nut butter of your choice
  • 2 heaped tablespoon vanilla yoghurt
  • 1 cup your choice of nuts and seeds
  • 2 tablespoon cacao
  • ½ cup coconut chips
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (optional if you want it sweeter)


  1. Slice the skin off the eggplant. Cut into 1cm rounds and pierce with a fork 3 times. Sprinkle salt over and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, coconut milk, cinnamon, and vanilla, and whisk to combine. Heat the coconut oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Dab the pieces with paper towel to remove excess water, and put each piece of eggplant in the egg mixture. Holding onto as much mixture as possible, place the eggplant on the skillet. Repeat for all pieces of eggplant. Cook for 10 minutes on the first side over low heat and 5 minutes on the other side.
  3. To serve, stack half the pieces on one plate and half on the other. Top each serve with half the tahini, yoghurt, mixed nuts and seeds, raw cacao, coconut chips, and a small drizzle of syrup if you want it sweeter.
