Healthy School Bread Recipe
If you have been to Epcot at Walt Disney World, you have probably heard of the Norway Pavilion’s notorious school bread. Being a lover of Disney food, and incorporating Disney into my meal plans and recipes, I wanted to create something that reminded me of this delicious pastry, but was healthy.
What is school bread?
School bread is a sweet bread filled with vanilla custard, then topped with frosting and coconut, and another dollop of custard. It definitely sounds and tastes amazing, and there are recipes out there to replicate Disney World’s School Bread. However, when we aren’t on vacation, or if we are on a clean eating meal plan like I am, we can’t necessarily have it on a regular basis.
I have created a clean eating school bread copycat recipe (aka coconut french toast), that is reminiscent of the flavors of school bread, but it is created using all natural ingredients. Not only is it lighter in taste and natural, but it is also a healthy breakfast that is kid, husband, and 21 Day Fix approved. Having just created a clean eating version of Walt Disney World’s “The Grey Stuff”, I was excited to brainstorm another clean eating treat inspired by Disney Parks food.
The Ingredients, for 2 Servings. 21 Day Fix Container counts: 1 Yellow, 1/2 red, 1 blue, 1 tsp per person.
-3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
-2 slices of 100 calorie or less whole grain bread (I used The Good Seed Dave’s Killer Bread)
-2 tsp Vanilla extract
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/3 cup shredded or toasted coconut
-Drizzle of honey
-1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or nonfat milk, coconut milk, or soy milk)
In one small bowl, put in your egg, milk, cinnamon, and 1 tsp of vanilla. In another small bowl, place your yogurt and other tsp of vanilla.
Whisk together milk, egg, cinnamon, and 1 tsp of vanilla.
Whisk together your Greek yogurt and other tsp of vanilla, at rapid speed.
On a non-stick frying pan, heat a tablespoon of coconut oil (or other high cooking oil) until spread all across the bottom of the pan and melted.
Then, dip each side of your bread slices in the egg mixture, as if you’re making french toast.
On medium heat, cook each side of your bread slices until golden brown.
Once both sides are cooked, spread dollops of the Greek yogurt mixture on each slice of bread you cooked. Then, top with your coconut and finish off with a drizzle of honey.
You’re all done! You can either pick up with your hands, but I prefer to eat with a fork and knife, like French toast. Your creation won’t taste as sweet as Epcot’s school bread, but it will definitely be tasty and something that you can eat at home on a regular basis for a satisfying yet light breakfast. And if you’re like me, and making themed days for your weekly meal plan, this would be perfect for an Epcot themed day, or a Frozen themed day with its Norwegian inspirations.
