Choco-Coconut “Lamington” French Toast

CHOCO-COCONUT “LAMINGTON” FRENCH TOAST

Ingredients


For the French toasts:

1 egg (Vegan substitute: flax egg)

150ml unsweetened almond milk

2tbsp Naturya Organic Chocolate Blend

½ tablespoon natural sweetener/sugar of choice (Can be substituted with a mashed banana but this will change the taste of the French toast)

2 pieces of bread of choice (I use sourdough or rye, but you can use anything your heart desires)

1tsp vanilla extract


For the coconut filling:

100g coconut yoghurt

20g coconut chips

½ tablespoon natural sweetener/sugar of choice (Optional)


For the chocolate icing and toppings:

50g dark (raw) chocolate, melted

25g desiccated coconut


Method:

  1. Whisk the egg, milk, sweetener/sugar and vanilla together in a shallow bowl until combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, melt the dark chocolate either over a bain-marie or in the microwave, whichever you prefer.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the coconut yoghurt and sweetener if using.
  4. Spread both pieces of bread with the coconut filling, and add the coconut chips to one slice of bread.
  5. Top with the second piece of bread and gently press the edges down to ‘seal.’
  6. Dip the sandwich into the egg mix, and turn to coat.
  7. Heat a non-stick pan with Mellow Yellow Rapeseed Oil over low-medium heat.
  8. Fry sandwich for about 3 – 5 minutes on both sides or until golden brown and cooked through.
  9. To serve, cut the sandwich in half diagonally to produce two triangular-shaped French toasts and then sprinkle the top with desiccated coconut as well as fresh fruit.
