COLLAGEN FRENCH TOAST BAKE

Collagen French Toast Bake

You know when you want a "fancy" breakfast, but don't want to slave away in the kitchen? This Collagen French Toast Bake is the ticket! All that cinnamon maple goodness... with no fuss or standing over a pan. This yummy breakfast casserole is gluten free and dairy free with added protein from the collagen. I topped mine with blueberries, powdered sweetener, and sugar free pancake syrup!

Did you know? Collagen is a key component of not only our skin, but also our bones and joints (connective tissue). Type I collagen is the most prevalent in our bodies, and marine collagen is particularly high in type I. (source)

Collagen recommendations

For this recipe, I used LIV Body Flavorless Marine Collagen. I love how easily it mixes into recipes and you can barely taste it! More than that, I love the benefits for healthy skin, hair, and nails as well as my joints and gut. You can use my code "SARAHWILKINS" for free shipping on all LIV Body orders

If you'd rather not add collagen, don't worry, the recipe works just fine without it!

Best gluten free breads

I made this gluten free using Schar gluten free artisan white bread. Gluten free breads can be hit or miss, but I love how this one has a thick slice that holds together and has a hint of sourdough flavor. Canyon Bakehouse is another brand I like!

Sweetener recommendations

Most recipes for french toast bakes recommend brown sugar so I used a sugar free brown sugar alternative. Besti is my current favorite, but also like Swerve Brown, Truvia Sweet Complete Brown, and Lakanto Golden Monkfruit. Really any sweetener will work that measures like sugar, but I did find the brown sugar added a nice hint of maple!

Other ingredients 

The only other ingredients you'll need are unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice), eggs, pure vanilla extract, and cinnamon. If you can't have eggs, you can try a vegan egg substitute or Egg Beaters for lower cholesterol (or even egg whites). 

Here is the printable recipe for this Collagen French Toast Bake! I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours did ;)

These Mediterranean Turkey Stuffed Peppers are high on the flavor charts and very filling for the calories. These peppers will not only satisfy your tastebuds, but your hunger, too! I love the combination of seasoned ground turkey, lemon parsley quinoa, and goat cheese. It’s one of those things I can eat all week and not get sick of (perfect for meal prep). The kids gobbled these too, believe it or not! Make these vegan using spiced chickpeas and vegan mozzarella.
