Valentine’s Healthy Breakfast


This year Valentine's Day ended up on a Friday and on a 3-day weekend, score! Over the weekend I made this Blueberry French Toast Casserole. It's so delicious! It's very important what bread you use. You want to use a low calorie, low sugar, healthy bread. Normally I like my french toast with French Brioche which I would go special to a bakery to get, but not for this recipe. Unsweetened almond milk has less sugar, less calories, less carbs, less fat, and more fiber than cows milk.This recipe freezes great too so you can save some for next weekend.

Clean Eating Blueberry French Toast Casserole
(Makes 6 servings)

Ingredients:
6 cups cubed, whole grain bread
8 egg whites (I use Abbotsford cage free liquid egg whites)
1½ cups unsweetened almond milk
¼  cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. almond extract (adds a nice flavor to it)
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, almond milk, honey, extracts and cinnamon. Whisk well.
  2. Oil a baking dish (about 9 x 13), and fill it with the bread.
  3. Pour the liquid mixture over the bread and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes, mixing once or twice to be sure all parts of the bread are moistened.
  4. Mix in the blueberries.
  5. Bake the casserole at 350 F. for about 45 minutes or until there is no longer any liquid between the bread.
  6. Cool 5 minutes then serve.
