THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY LAKANTO, ALL OPINIONS ARE 100% MY OWN.  

I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite companies, Lakanto, to make this Easy French Toast Casserole using their organic monk fruit sweetener. If you’ve been looking for a sweet breakfast casserole this Holiday season, this Easy French Toast Casserole is it. Make this up the night before and all you’ll have to do in the morning is bake and eat it!

Servings: Makes 6 (1 and 1/4 cup) servings

GREEN: 6 smartpoints per serving is using liquid eggs or 7 smartpoints if using whole eggs 

BLUE/PURPLE: 5 smartpoints per serving 

What ingredients do I need to make this Easy French Toast Casserole?

  • One point bread: I like using Sara Lee 45 calorie bread, Nature’s Own no sugar added bread, or  647 Schmidt bread, cut into 1” inch chunks 
  • Fresh or frozen fruit: If using frozen fruit, add them to the casserole while still frozen (do not thaw). This prevents coloring the batter.
  • Eggs: or you can substitute the eggs for 1 1/4 cup liquid eggs
  • Fat free half and half: if you don’t have fat free half and half you can substitute it using 2 cups skim or unsweetened almond milk + 1/2 cup regular half and half.  If you wanted you could substitute the full amount for unsweetened almond milk or skim milk BUT I highly recommend the fat free half and half-it takes the creaminess and flavor to whole new level of deliciousness. 
  • Zero point white granulated sugar: I use Lakanto’s Organic Monkfruit Sweetener
  • Lemon or orange zest
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Sugar free syrup: I recommend using Mrs. Butterworth’s sugar free syrup or ChocZero no sugar added syrup 

 

What kind of sweetener do your recommend using for this Easy French Toast Casserole?

I recommend Lakanto Organic monk fruit Sweetener!

Why? Because it has the same great Lakanto taste, but it’s extra certified!

That’s right, not only is it certified but it is the BEST TASTING sweetener on the market, has zero net carbs, zero glycemic, and zero calories!! Seriously, how could you ask for anything more? 

Why is Lakanto monk fruit the best?

    • It’s certified-organic substitute for white sugar. It’s the perfect granular sweetener for baking and cooking.
    • Replaces sugar with a natural, healthy option but tastes just like sugar.
    • Ease of use – use it in place of sugar in any of your favorite recipes, or even just in tea and coffee. 
    • Lakanto monk fruit sweeteners do not raise blood sugar and do not raise plasma or glucose insulin levels.
    • It has zero net carbs, zero glycemic, and zero calories.
    • It’s vegan, low carb, keto and WW friendly!

What kind of fruit can I use for this Easy French Toast Casserole?

  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • cherries
  • strawberries
  • bananas
  • blackberries
  • cranberries

 

How do I make this Easy French Toast Casserole?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with non stick cooking cooking spray.

Spread 1/2 bread cubes to cover the bottom of prepared baking dish.

Cover with 1 cup of fruit, followed by the remaining bread cubes and fruit.

In a small bowl (preferably one with a spout),  whisk the eggs together.

Add the fat free half and half, Lakanto’s organic white granulated sugar sweetener, sugar free syrup, vanilla extract, orange or lemon zest, and a pinch of salt. Whisk well. 

Pour the egg and milk batter evenly over all the bread chunks.

At this point, you can cover the casserole with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate it overnight.

Otherwise, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover the casserole with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, remove foil and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until baked through.

Remove from oven. Let it cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

Can this casserole be made in advance?

Yes, assemble the casserole, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.  

The next day, uncover. I like to drizzle the top of the casserole with a little more sugar free syrup- after it’s been sitting in the fridge overnight-then bake as directed. 

Keep in mind the baking time may need to be extended by 5-8 minutes, if it has been chilled in the fridge overnight. 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 14 slices (one point) bread -I like using Sara Lee 45 calorie bread, Nature’s Own no sugar added bread, 647 Schmidt bread), cut into 1” inch chunks 
  • 2 cups fruit, fresh or frozen * If using frozen fruit, add them to the casserole while still frozen (do not thaw). This prevents coloring the batter.
  • 5 large eggs or 1 1/4 liquid eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups fat free half and half or 2 cups skim or unsweetened almond milk + 1/2 cup regular half and half 
  • 1/4 cup zero point white granulated sugar- I use Lakanto’s Organic Monkfruit Sweetener
  • 1 Tbsp lemon or orange zest
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup sugar free syrup- I use Mrs. Butterworth’s sugar free syrup
