This Coconut Macadamia Nut French Toast is a copycat breakfast recipe from the Hukilau Cafe in Hawaii. It’s a little taste of Hawaii each time we make it!
This Coconut Macadamia Nut French Toast is a recipe we made to replicate a favorite breakfast we ate in Hawaii. There was an awesome family breakfast place in Kauai that I think we ate at three different times while we were there. We tried several different yummy breakfasts but every time we would still split an order of this french toast. After having it three times I made some serious mental notes so I could make it again at home. I have to admit, I like our version of this Coco-Maca Nut French Toast even better! It is like a little piece of paradise in every bite.
I like this recipe by far the best with coconut syrup! Although you can definitely do maple syrup as well and it will still be really good. Whenever we have been to Hawaii we load up on coconut syrup to bring home, but unfortunately it’s not that often that we get to Hawaii so I ended up creating my own coconut syrup recipe that is TO DIE FOR good! It is every bit as good as the stuff you can get on vacation. You can find the recipe for it HERE with our gluten free blackberry pancakes.
- Shave the heels off the ends of the bread then cut into 8 large slices.
- Combine eggs, milks, and spices in a large bowl. Soak bread in egg mixture. Melt a little butter in a large fry pan or griddle. Brown each side of the bread then place on a cookie sheet. When all the pieces are done, place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
- Serve with powdered sugar, sliced bananas, toasted coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, coconut or maple syrup, and whipped cream.
