Ingredients:

  • 6 cups cubed, whole grain bread

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup)

  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, almond milk, honey, extracts and cinnamon. Whisk well.
  2. Oil a baking dish (about 9 x 13), and fill it with the bread.
  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.

  5. Bake the casserole at 350 F. for about 45 minutes or until there is no longer any liquid between the bread.
  6. Allow to cool a bit and serve.
