French toast is something new to my #weekend breakfasts. To be honest, it is so fun to change the porridge/avo toast routine sometimes. I love trying new things, and this #Frenchtoast will definitely be a weekend treat from now on!
This Baked French Toast recipe allows you to enjoy the goodness of this classic without all of the work of flipping slices of toast at the stove.
I love how this recipe turned out because it feels like I’m eating dessert for breakfast which is just great. If you think you won’t have the time to prepare the full dish in the morning, you can always prep the night before and refrigerate it overnight. In the morning, you’ll just bake it in the oven for 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven). And the best part is how amazing your kitchen will smell as the breakfast bakes in the oven because of the vanilla and cinnamon!
How to make this Baked French Toast?
Start by cutting the bread into different forms (ideally into cubes but mine was in weird triangles). Arrange the bread into an even layer in a baking tray (a small one if you are making a single-serve breakfast or a bigger one if you are cooking for more than one person), but it does not need to be perfect!
Next, make the custard. Get a bowl and whisk together the egg, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla, protein powder and milk.
Pour the custard over the bread in the baking dish, doing your best to pour it evenly over all of the bread cubes.
And some tips:
💡Use #wholemeal bread instead of white bread for more #fibre
💡Use #date syrup for sweetening because it can resist high temperatures (baking).
💡Use stevia/xylitol if you want to reduce the carbs/sugar content
💡Use some protein powder for adding additional protein to the recipe to make the breakfast more #balanced and nutritious. Besides, it gives a really nice flavour.
