This blueberry French toast casserole is so delicious! It makes the perfect weekend breakfast recipe or a great brinner (breakfast for dinner) recipe if your family loves breakfast food as much as mine does. Plus, it’s made with healthier ingredients than traditional French toast, so you can feel better about serving it to your family.
But let me tell you it doesn’t taste healthier AT ALL. My typically picky kids gobbled it up when I tested the recipe before making it for my sister and asked when I would be making it again. Now that’s a hit if I’ve ever seen one!
12 slice – bread, whole wheat
8 large – egg white
1 1/2cup – almond milk, unsweetened
1/4cup – honey
1 teaspoon – vanilla extract
2 teaspoon – almond extract
2 teaspoon – cinnamon
1 – cooking spray
2 cup – blueberries
Cut bread slices into cubes (enough for 6 cups).
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, honey, vanilla, almond extract, and cinnamon. Whisk well.
Spray a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray and fill it with the bread. Pour the liquid mixture over top, and toss to ensure all the bread is moistened. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes, then mix in the blueberries.
Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the bread is golden.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Top with butter and maple syrup if desired.

Quick tip: Use another fruit like sliced strawberries or apples (you may want to precook them to soften a bit) if you’re not a fan of blueberries.
