Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 12 slices day-old bread
  • Maple syrup strawberries and/or other fruit for serving


  • In a large shallow bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
  • Place cream cheese and marmalade in a small bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Divide cream cheese mixture between 6 slices of bread and generously spread on one side. Top slices with remaining bread to form a sandwich.
  • Preheat a griddle OR non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Dip "sandwiches" in egg-milk mixture and roll both sides in shredded coconut. Cook french toast in batches on preheated skillet 2 minutes on each side, or until golden.
  • Cut french toast sandwiches in half and serve immediately warm with maple syrup and fruit.
