RECIPE: Clean 5 Minute Raspberry French Toast Bake

If y'all have ever been over to this blog before, you know about my love for mason jars. So when it came to breakfast this morning, and I wasn't feeling the whole "oats in a jar" idea, I decided to make french toast. 
In a mason jar, of course. 
Y'all- this was definitely a home run. My favorite part? It's completely clean/healthy!

    Ingredients 
  • 1-2 pieces bread
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 3.5-4 tbsp egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 drops liquid stevia (or equivalent sweetener)
  • berries- I didn't really measure this, just added in a bunch
  • cinnamon
  • greek yogurt - I used vanilla
    Methods: 
  1. Mix all wet ingredients together in a shallow dish, and rip bread into bite-sized pieces. Let the break soak up the liquid, adding more almond milk if necessary. 
  2. Fold in some fruit and transfer to a mason jar. It might look like a lot but it'll shrink while cooking! Microwave (uncovered) for 2-3 minutes. Check at 2 minutes to see if the egg whites are cooked, and if not, continue in 20 second intervals. If desired, you can pop into the oven for a while to get a crispy crust, but the microwave is great for when you're strapped for time. 
  3. Take out and let cool for 30 seconds. Add more fruit as desired and top with yogurt and MOAR FRUIT. Make the top look pretty, Instagram it, and tag me @himahearts!
  4. Eat it aaaaall up. 
Happy Wednesday, my loves! Don't forget to pin this recipe to Pinterest to save for later! 

xo, Hima

  17. Hmm, well I've only made it once, and I used some sourdough we had from Trader Joe's! Any kind of sandwich bread should work though!
