I saw a similar recipe in a cookbook and thought this looked delicious! I decided to “clean it up” and see how it turned out! This yummy dish did not disappoint! It is so delicious you will surely be able to fool your kid’s into thinking they are having an unhealthy treat! 🙂 It can double as either a breakfast dish, dessert, or both! The best part is, it was pretty simple to make! I made mine the night before and just popped it into the oven in the morning! Can I get an “amen” for easy, no fuss breakfast options?!
I hope you enjoy this as much as our family did! 🙂
2 Eggs, plus 4 egg yolks
1 Cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 Cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Cup date butter or apple butter
1/2 Tsp cinnamon
1/4 Tsp nutmeg
1 Cup blueberries
1 Loaf cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread
Cut bread into cubes and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
Combine eggs, milk, date butter, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Mix well with a whisk.
Grease a casserole dish with coconut oil and fill with bread crumbs. Sprinkle blueberries on top and pour the custard mix overtop. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 325F
Fill a large pan with 1 inch water. Place the baking dish with the french toast in the water bath. Cover with foil, cut a few holes for venting and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and back for a additional 40 minutes.
This is an awesome clean family favourite to incorporate for special events such as birthdays and holidays!
I hope this delicious casserole helps to start your morning off right!
