I made this for Sunday breakfast. It turned out really good! Perfect for Sunday brunch. Light pumpkin flavor, crispy on top and I just love using a hearty sprouted bread. Really adds to the texture. You could double or triple this recipe to feed a crowd.
Pumpkin French Toast Bake
Makes 2 servings
4 slices sprouted whole wheat bread (like Ezekiel)
4 egg whites (1/2 cup liquid egg whites)
1/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 scoop (30 g) whey protein powder, vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/8 tsp nutmeg & cloves)
4 packets stevia
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
2 Tbsp almond meal (ground almonds)
1 tsp sucanat (raw brown sugar)
2 tsp butter, melted (or I used Earth Balance)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray. Toast bread and cut into bite size pieces (can omit this if using very dry bread). In a large bowl, mix together all the other ingredients with a whisk (aside from bread and topping). Lastly, add bread pieces, toss to coat and pour into greased baking dish. Mix the topping to a crumble type consistency and sprinkle over bread mixture. Bake for 20 minutes or until firm and golden.
