Cherry almond baked French toast


Cherry almond baked French toast Simply Filling + 1pp or 7pp all depends on the bread you use.

2 slices of Ezekiel bread
1/4c egg substitute or egg whites or if doing simply filling 1 egg beaten

sweetener to taste
1/2c frozen cherries thawed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
7 grams of slivered almonds
1/2 tsp of turbinado sugar or large grain sugar to sprinkle on top for crunch :)

Cut the bread into cubes.
Mix the egg, milk, vanilla extract and sweetener together then pour over the bread cubes. Toss carefully to wet all the cubes.
Add the cherries saving a few to put on top.

Spray a small baking dish with non stick spray.
Pour the bread mixture in.
Top with a couple of the cherries, the almonds and lastly the sugar.
