Citrus Almond French Toast

Updated: Feb 18

For the past 3 mornings in a row, I have had at least two breakfast guests + myself and my children to feed. My best friend seems to be around most mornings, my dad drops by on Sundays, and currently one of my girlfriends is staying for a few days because she needs "space" from her relationship to think.  There is never a dull moment at my house! To me, the kitchen is the soul of the house and I love my open door policy.  At my house anyone is welcome anytime.  I hate the idea that my friends would ever need to make an appointment to see me. I believe electronic communication has distanced us enough from one another and I think we should get back to face to face interaction.  As a result, I leave my door open most of the time and people can come and go as they please.  I always leave treats in my fridge for whoever might be passing through.  When I came home from work at 11:00 p.m. the other night there were three people sitting at my kitchen island debating.  It warms my heart.

"To me, the kitchen is the soul of the house and I love my open door policy."


  • 6 slices of bread of your choice (I use any type from the local company Little Stream Bakery)

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tbsp raw honey

  • 1/4 cup almond milk (vanilla or plain)

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp grated orange zest

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 tbsp butter or coconut oil (melted)


  1. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, almond milk, honey, cinnamon, orange zest and vanilla extract.  

  2. In a frying pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.

  3. Soak the bread in the mixture and fry in the pan until golden brown.
