*No Bread* Paleo French Toast Recipe
Serves: Makes about 10 small slices, for 2 servings
This paleo french toast recipe requires only six ingredients. The secret to this bread free recipe? Eggplant! When cooked in an egg batter, it takes on the texture of french toast without a discernible flavor.
  • 1 eggplant
  • Unrefined salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbs. milk of choice
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon, plus more for dusting
  • Coconut oil or ghee, for the pan
  • Toppings of your choice (fresh fruit, syrup, coconut cream, etc.)
  1. Peel the eggplant and slice it into about ¼ inch slices. Set the slices on a cutting board and sprinkle both sides with unrefined salt. Place the salted slices in a colander and set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. You'll see condensation and a bit of brown liquid on the eggplant. Rinse the slices well, then pat dry with paper towels or a kitchen towel. This process tames the eggplant flavor.
  3. Whisk the eggs with the milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Begin heating your skillet over medium heat and grease it with oil. Dunk the eggplant slices in the egg mixture, piercing the slices with a fork to encourage absorption.
  4. Cook the slices until golden - they will look like french toast! Serve warm. These pair well with bold-flavored toppings such as cinnamon, coconut, nut butter or maple syrup.
