April 21, 2018

I have been itching to make a breakfast recipe, I don’t make many breakfast recipes because I like to make myself a typic big breakfast of pancakes, bacon, egg whites & hash browns, not altogether… well unless I’m really hungry 😉 I had lots of fresh berries in the fridge and this recipe just popped into my head one day so I went with it..well, am I glad I did because this berry crumble french toast bake was AMAZING!! A sweet and filling breakfast sure to please everyone, serves 6 at 6 smart points each on weight watchers freestyle.

Serves: 6
 
6 freestyle SP, 8SP/6PP
Ingredients
  • 12 pieces low-calorie bread (I used weight watchers whole wheat bread 12 pieces=18SP)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1⅓ cup milk, I used 1%
  • 1½ cup fresh berries, I used raspberries, strawberries and blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2.5 Tbsp flour
  • ¾ Tbsp melted light butter (I use Gay Lea)
Instructions
  1. Cut your 12 pieces of bread into small 1 inch pieces, spray a 9 inch dish and place half of your bread on the bottom.
  2. In a bowl (or a large measuring cup like I used) whisk together your eggs and milk, add in honey, vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. Place half of your fresh berries on top of your bread then top with remaining cut bread.
  4. Pour your egg mixture over top being sure to cover all areas, push down on bread a bit so it all gets soaked in. Top with remaining berries, cover with foil and refrigerate for at least one hour *note you can leave overnight if you wish.
  5. In a small bowl mix your sugar and flour together, then stir in your melted butter until a crumble forms, sprinkle on top.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F, bake covered with foil for 30 minutes, remove foil and continue baking for 25 minutes. Serve warm, drizzle with maple syrup *optional and not included in point values or nutritional info . Store in the fridge, will freeze well.
