Clean Eating Blueberry French Toast Casserole

My family and I love to have breakfast for dinner. LOVE IT! Most mornings we are so busy that we truly only have time for eggs and oatmeal. (It takes me literally 5 minutes flat to make breakfast in the mornings!!) Dippy eggs, old fashioned oatmeal and it is DONE! So, to hang out for an hour in the mornings for breakfast is a no go! We are a busy family, so our delicious breakfasts are usually done at dinnertime!! This is a HIT at my house. The blueberries in it really sweeten the dish to make it taste like it is full of ‘bad stuff!’ In reality, it is a healthy dish that you can have either all by itself or you can even add some homemade turkey breakfast sausage to go along side of it!!! 
Try it out and let me know how you like it! I am obsessed! My kids love to pick out the blueberries and eat them separately! Enjoy!

(Makes about 12 servings)
Ingredients
6 cups cubed, whole grain bread
8 egg whites
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. almond extract
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups fresh blueberries
Directions
Step 1 – In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, almond milk, honey, extracts and cinnamon. Whisk well.
Step 2 – Oil a baking dish (about 9 x 13), and fill it with the bread.
Step 3 – Pour the liquid mixture over the bread and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes, mixing once or twice to be sure all parts of the bread are moistened.
Step 4 – Mix in the blueberries.
Step 5 – Bake the casserole at 350 F. for about 45 minutes or until there is no longer any liquid between the bread.
Step 6 – Allow to cool a bit and serve.
Eat and Enjoy!
