  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Meanwhile, slice bread into cubes and place in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. If using pecans, sprinkle them on top of the bread cubes. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flax eggs, pumpkin, oat milk, oat creamer, maple syrup, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes.
  • Cover your pan with foil or plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350-degrees Set out the french toast casserole on the counter while the oven preheats.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, or until the middle of the casserole no longer jiggles and the edges of the casserole are lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the casserole to cool for 10 minutes. This will also make it easier to cut. Enjoy with extra maple syrup, plain Greek yogurt, fruit, and/or melted almond butter.
