Servings: 6 servings
Calories: 372kcal


  • 8 slices gluten-free bread
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil divided use
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 8 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar divided use
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon divided use
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg divided use
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large apples any variety
  • Maple syrup and powdered sugar for serving (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown. Remove the bread from the oven and increase the heat to 350ºF.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to the bottom of an 8x8-inch baking dish. Arrange the toasted bread in two layers inside the dish. Press down to flatten slightly.
  • Whisk together the eggs, milk, 6 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, and vanilla. Pour the mixture over the toast and set aside while you prepare the apples.
  • Core and slice the apples into 1/8-inch thick wedges. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apples, remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and remaining ½ teaspoon of nutmeg. Sauté until the apples have started to soften and caramelize, 6-8 minutes. Remove the apples from the heat and let cool slightly. When cool enough to handle, arrange the slices on top of the toast mixture.
  • Bake on the center rack in the oven for 50-60 minutes until the eggs have set. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve topped with maple syrup and powdered sugar, if desired.
