Coconut Crusted Stuffed French Toast

I have another sweet breakfast idea for you! It’s Coconut Crusted Stuffed French Toast, made with coconut flavored cream cheese, crusted and toasted in some coconut flakes as well.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so why not have some fun with it!

I’ve been on quite the coconut kick lately,  using coconut everywhere I can. I even got some toasted coconut almonds. They are amazing, by the way. (I’m planning on making some cookies with it and can’t wait to share it.)

It’s been a while since I made stuffed French Toast. Actually, I haven’t made one since the Blueberry Stuffed French Toast. It was the little man’s first experience with French toast and he was hooked. Even though pancakes are still his favorite, stuffed French toast is a close second.

I would say that this Coconut French Toast more than made up for not having it in a while. It’s so soft in the center and crusted with crunchy coconut flakes on the top. I also used some cream of coconut in the eggs and in the cream cheese. This is the perfect coconut goodness to start your day!

Coconut Crusted Stuffed French Toast

Serving Size: 6 slices


  • 6 1-inch thick slices of French Bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbs cream of coconut
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tbs cream of coconut
  • 1 1/2 cup of coconut flakes
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil for cooking


  1. Preheat a saute pan on medium heat.
  2. Slice the French bread slices in the middle but not all the way through.
  3. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese and 1 tbs of cream of coconut until well combined.
  4. Place coconut flakes in another shallow, wide bowl.
  5. In a shallow, wide bowl, whisk eggs, 1 tbs of cream of coconut, vanilla and sugar until smooth.
  6. Spread the cream cheese mixture in the middle of the bread slices.
  7. Dip the bread in egg mixture and then into coconut flakes. Press the flakes lightly.
  8. Cook the French toast on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes on each side. (If the coconut is toasting too fast, you may need to lower the heat a little bit.)

  2. Well, I am in love with these! You can show us all of what you have in mind with your coconut kick…love it! You’re so creative. (=

  3. Marysue says:

    Oh, oh, oh….I’m going into a craving fit! These (and ALL the others that you show with them) look just amazing! I am a coconut NUT, so this has been added to my “To Do” list in bold, capital letters! Since you are a coconut affectionado, I’d like to ask you a question. I wanted to make a cookie that called for “desiccated coconut” but I, nor anyone at the store, knew what it was. Any tips?

    • You are too funny, Marysue!
      I haven’t seen any or used it before but it looks like it’s raw, unsweetened coconut flakes. You know what you can do is buy a coconut and shave the fresh coconut meat. I actually love this idea and I’m going to work on that :)
