Berry Crumble French Toast Bake

Updated: Jan 18, 2020

This is my latest favorite breakfast bake. I have tested it 5-6 times, only making it more and more delicious. It is super versatile, making it an easy meal to make even with items you might have on hand (such as using apples and adding cinnamon -- a great option too!). I'll write out some tips and then the recipe and directions below. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!


*You don't have to use protein powder in this recipe. You would just skip the step of adding it to the egg mixture and follow all other instructions accordingly.

*Healthy Life Bread is just what I used, but I also think using Hawaiian rolls work great too & don't increase calorie content too much.

*Makes 10 slices (or however many you want :))


Ingredients:

-1 loaf Healthy Life Honey Wheat Bread

-200g blueberries

-200g strawberries (sliced)

-3 cups egg whites

-6 large eggs

-3 scoops PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Protein Powder (93g)

-2 cups almond milk

-1/2 cup all purpose flour

-1/2 cup brown sugar

-3 tbsp butter

-1 tsp vanilla

-1 tsp almond extract (optional)

-3 tbsp stevia

-1/4 tsp kosher salt


Instructions

-spray 9x13 casserole dish with spray butter

-dice each slice of bread into cubes & spread evenly in casserole dish

-put blueberries and sliced strawberries into a medium bowl and add 1 tbsp of stevia and mix to coat the berries, then scatter on top of bread cubes

-in a large bowl, combine the eggs & remaining 2 tbsp of stevia. To prevent protein powder from being clumpy, I use a shaker bottle to mix egg whites and 1 scoop of powder at a time (repeating this step 3 times since there are 3 cups of egg whites & 3 scoops of powder), add to the egg/stevia mixture along with vanilla, almond extract & salt - then pour this over bread & berries, **I like to press everything down with my [clean] hands and really get the bread to soak all the liquid mixture up well, then cover dish with foil & refrigerate

-in a clean bowl, add room temperature butter with the flour & brown sugar- mix with a fork to create a crumbly like texture- I tried using "light" butter to do this, but it wouldn't get to a crumbly texture, so real butter works best; then after crumble is formed, cover with foil and refrigerate

-after 6 hours or more of refrigeration, you are ready to bake! Preheat oven to 350

-set casserole dish on top of baking sheet to avoid the bottom getting too brown

-sprinkle the crumble over the dish evenly

-bake for 30 minutes

-remove from oven and cover loosely with foil and return to oven for another 30 minutes

-let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving or separating into tupperware

-enjoy! :)
