Author notes

For the bread, we recommend using brioche, it really makes this recipe extra delicious. However, feel free to try with different types of bread.

We like to use coconut sugar but you can sub it for brown or white sugar.

You can use any type of milk you’d like: we used oat milk but feel free to try almond or regular milk.
