Cinnamon Apple French Toast Bake

We're reunited for the week and are so excited to combine our ideas and make loads of new recipes! This morning, we made-up this delicious recipe on a whim... it's a perfect healthy twist on french toast!



Start by dicing one small gala apple. You should have approximately three quarter cups of diced pieces. Toss apples with one teaspoon of ground cinnamon and set aside.


In a large bowl, whisk together one large egg, one third cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, two tablespoons of pure maple syrup and half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. 
Tare two slices of light rye bread into small pieces. Add the pieces to the egg mixture and let soak for approximately 5 minutes, or until all the liquid has been soaked up.
Next, spray a small baking dish with cooking spray. Layer your bake as followed: half the bread mixture at the bottom of the dish...


diced apples (conserve a few for the topping)...


remaining half of the bread mixture, conserved apple slices and 10g of chopped mixed raw nuts. 



Bake at 350oF for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and serve!
