Strawberry Almond French Toast Casserole

While searching a healthy French toast recipe, I found one for Blueberry Almond Baked French Toast on a site called Mr.Breakfast. It was pretty healthy looking, but I made some adaptations to ensure it was low in Weight Watcher points. This is 7 points per serving, and it is a generous portion. It is made with whole wheat grainy bread, delicious maple syrup and crunchy almonds.
This is a delicious and filling brunch food!

Strawberry Almond French Toast Casserole adapted from a recipe from Mr.
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
Prepare a 8x8 baking pan by spraying the inside with cooking spray.

Place the bread in a single layer in the baking pan.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and egg whites with the milk, vanilla, cinnamon and maple syrup. Pour this mixture over the bread in the pan. Scatter the strawberries evenly over the top and sprinkle with the almonds and brown sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (at least 4 hours).

Bake for about 30 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees.

To keep it healthy, serve with some applesauce instead of butter and maple syrup.

Blogging Fail and Weight Watchers

I fail in blogging. I haven't blogged since August, and it is now March. When I came back from San Franisco school started. I had a new school, a new grade, grad class, etc and I just couldn't get back into blogging.
Since January I have been going to Weight Watchers meetings. I have been losing weight and I feel really great! I still love to cook, I am just trying to do it healthier now.
I am going to try to blog more about my healthy recipes starting tomorrow. I am making a baked french toast casserole so stay tuned...
