Coconut Crusted French Toasts

Tostadas francesas con cobertura de coco 4

These french toasts are super juicy, sweet and smoky. The natural fat of the coconut shreds will give the correct moisture and softness. Besides, it will provide a sweet taste so you wont need to use syrup. When the coconut get toasted, it get a smoky  and wonderful aroma and taste.  It was easy to stick the coconut shred to the bread slices. It is a similar process to coat. The mixture contain eggs, vanilla, sugar, spices and almond milk. It is a really fun process that you can make with your guests.

I used a local bread from Las Marías, Puerto Rico. This bread is made form oat flour and only contains vegetable oil, salt and nutritional yeast.  It is a thin bread so it will absorb the mixture quickly. You can found this bread in Freshmart

I topped them with organic berries and drizzle a bit of berry juice for more flavors.
