 What ingredients do I need to make this Cinnamon Sugar Croissant French Toast Bake

  • Thomas mini croissants-cut into bite size pieces. I recommend using slightly old croissants to help absorb the custard. It won’t actually taste stale when you eat it.  If you just bought fresh croissants for this recipe, you can still make them work. Try leaving them out at room temperature overnight to dry out a little or toast them in the oven for a few minutes. That way they will be a more hard and ready to go.  These mini croissants can be found at most grocery stores. I get mine at Walmart or online HERE on Amazon. 
  • Eggs or liquid egg substitute-  liquid eggs are found in a carton next to the eggs at most grocery stores. I like to use whole eggs which includes the yolks to help makes the custard thicker. 
  • Fat free half and half- or you could substitute this for unsweetened almond, coconut milk or skim milk if you prefer. I like to use half and half since it’s thicker and creates more of custard with the egg yolks-the thicker the custard the less soggy it will be. 
  • Zero point white granulated sugar sweetener – I use Lakanto monkfruit Classic or Baking sweetener. You can can use any other natural sugar sweetener if you prefer. Just be sure to use the conversion for regular sugar that is recommended on back of the package.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon

Optional Cinnamon Sugar Topping ingredients:

  • All purpose flour 
  • Regular brown sugar, unpacked or Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
  • Cinnamon
  • Light butter– I use Land o’Lakes light butter butter made with canola oil, cold

What fruit can I add to this French Toast Bake?

  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries 
  • Strawberries

Is the cinnamon sugar crumble needed?

It is optional however it’s highly recommended!! I really love the sweetness and texture of the cinnamon sugar crumble. If you omit it you will save 2 points per serving
