I love eggnog flavors! The great thing about making your own homemade dairy-free eggnog batter is that you can choose ingredients that you feel good about!

We’ve put a healthy spin on this recipe. Plus, with homemade, you can whip up the recipe any time to eggnog flavors throughout the year!

Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread

What makes this French toast casserole healthier than most?

Better bread option – we’re using Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread – Sprouted grains increase digestibility, antioxidants, and the absorption of minerals. In comparison, the body can’t properly digest the grain in traditional flour or whole grain flour bread, resulting in lost nutrients during digestion.

Naturally sweetened – only maple syrup is used in this French toast casserole!

Dairy-free – thanks to creamy canned coconut milk and unsweetened almond milk we’re keeping this dairy free.

Whole eggs and egg yolks – most eggnog is made using just egg yolks, but we’re upping the protein by also including whole eggs.

What goes into the dairy-free eggnog mixture?

Traditional eggnog uses cow’s milk, lots of sugar, egg yolks, and spices. 

In our easy dairy-free eggnog mixture, we’re using canned coconut milk, almond milk, egg yolks, and whole eggs, along with maple syrup for sweetness. 

Cinnamon and nutmeg bring out the eggnog flavors and it all comes together super simply in the blender!

How to make dairy free French toast bake

  3. Pour the eggnog mixture over the bread cubes and press the bread into the eggnog mixture.

Can this be prepped in advance?

You can easily prepare this overnight French toast casserole in advance.

Follow through step 3, cover, and place in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, bake according to step 4. The casserole will take an extra 10-15 minutes in the oven because it is baking from a chilled state.
