Ingredients
  

  • lb large loaf of french bread, cut into 1" thick slices (if GF: we use 4 of the Udi's french baguettes; if non-gluten free - 1 large loaf of french bread should be enough)
  • 3/4 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1-2 tbsp butter (just enough to coat the pan; we prefer using goat butter)
  • 3-4 whole oranges (use for the zest + fresh juice)
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (or substitute milk of choice)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, maple syrup, 1 cup fresh orange juice, orange zest, + vanilla. Pour over bread + cranberry mixture into baking pan
