We are a huge fan of "Make ahead" anything so these 2 breakfast recipes are great to try for this Christmas Holiday!! Both are super easy & delicious!!! Enjoy!
Baked French Toast
Thankfully there is such a thing as healthy French toast. The Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread eliminates refined flours and extra sugars, and the eggs add an additional protein boost that is welcome in any of my breakfasts.
- 4 servings
- 8 slices Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread (or try whole wheat bread & sprinkled it w cinnamon....my kids don’t care for raisins)
- 1 1/2 cup almond milk (I use no sugar, vanilla)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup + extra for drizzling
- 6 eggs
Cube bread into 1- 8 inch square pan
Whisk together almond milk, eggs and maple syrup.
Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, sprinkle with cinnamon and let soak for about 3 hours or overnight.
Bake at 375° for about 35-40 minutes, until eggs are set.
Cut into 4 pieces, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.
The portion size is huge and there are about 313 calories and 19 grams of protein per serving.
