  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups low-fat milk, optional almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar or honey
  • Topping

  • 1/2 cup minced pecans

Instructions

  1. Lightly mist a 9″ x 13″ x 2″ casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bread slices in two rows, slightly overlapping pieces. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and sucanat. Pour mixture over bread, making sure all bread is moist. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine topping ingredients, sprinkle evenly over the top of bread and bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden. Serve with fresh berries or a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
