While this gluten-free version of classic French toast could be made with any type of orange, we love the color and intense flavor that blood oranges bring.

Wash produce before use


Make the syrup

  • Zest and juice the oranges.
In a sauce pot over high heat, combine 2 tablespoons water, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, and half the blood orange zest and all but 2 tablespoons of the blood orange juice. Bring to a boil, reduce to a low simmer, and cook until the sugar has dissolved and the liquid has reduced to a syrup, 8 to 10 minutes.


Make the French toast

  • Cut the bread into ½-inch-thick slices.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, the remaining blood orange zest, 2 tablespoons blood orange juice, 1 tablespoon of the coconut sugar, salt, and vanilla. Soak 2 to 3 slices of bread at a time in the egg mixture.
In a frying pan over medium-high heat, warm ¼ cup coconut oil until hot but not smoking. Add the bread and cook until well browned and the egg is set, 2 to 3 minutes per side.



Transfer the French toast to individual plates and serve with blood orange syrup.
