Ingredients

STREUSEL TOPPING:

FOR THE FRENCH TOAST BAKE:

ICING:

  • 1-2 teaspoons Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup OR maple syrup
  • 4 Tablespoons Kitehill dairy free cream cheese OR regular cream cheese, softened
  • 1-2 Tablespoons almond milk

Instructions

  1. Lightly grease a 9x9-inch square baking dish or 2.5-quart casserole dish.

  2. CUT BREAD INTO CHUNKS: Preheat oven to 300F. Using your favorite grain-free bread, cut into slices and then even-sized chunks or cubes. Spread out onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and then flip and bake for another 10 minutes. Once cooled add them to the bottom of greased casserole dish.

  3. Make the streusel topping: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt together. Cut in the cubed butter with a pastry blender or two forks.

  4. In a large bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  5. Arrange half of the bread cubes in the bottom of the pan. Pour with 1/3 of the egg mixture and sprinkle with 1/3 of the streusel topping. Top with remaining bread cubes. Pour in remaining egg mixture, pressing down the bread cubes to absorb mixture.

  6. Cover pan with foil. Allow to chill in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight. When ready to bake, remove french toast from the fridge.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 22-25 minutes or until fluffy and golden.
  8. Meanwhile, make the icing: Combine maple syrup, cream cheese and milk in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add more or less milk depending on consistency desired.

  9. Remove french toast from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Top with syrup and or cream cheese icing, if desired. Serve warm.
