Berry crumble french toast bake

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.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
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.

    I LOVE all of your recipes! Can’t wait to make this next weekend. I make one of your donut recipes every Sunday too. I have one question/suggestion. Is there anyway to add the photo to the recipe when I print it? Your pictures are so nice, and I love to have a reference when I’m making a recipe for the first time, so I know what mine should look like. Thank you again for all your delicious, helpful recipes.

      Hi Trudi, thank you for your kind words, so glad your enjoying the recipes 🙂 I’m not too sure about adding a photo, printing from the computer is not my expertise haha 😉 you could print the whole page but then you’d get all the pictures, maybe you can set it when the printer info comes up to only print certain pages?

    My husband does not like any kind of berries. I know, crazy right?! Do you think it would be ok to just leave the berries out?

          I’m not sure how they would take to baking, usually I use banana’s that are mashed when they are in a recipe

    This looks delicious and we are going to the beach, and I am trying to have some premed food to bring with us. Do you cook and then freeze it, or would you make it, freeze, and then bake?
    Thanks

      Hi Stephanie, I think you could probably do it either way, I would probably bake then freeze, but either one is fine

    I have this in the oven as I type! I used diced fresh peaches and blueberries for the fruit. Testing out a crumble topper of quick oats instead of using flour. Can’t wait!!! Thank you for the inspiration 🙂

    Do you think it would work the same way if you used frozen berries? Regardless it looks delicious! And I really want to try this 🙂

    Is that a 9 x 13 pan or just a 9 inch square? Looking forward to making this!
