Heart-healthy French toast berry cobbler
frozen berries of choice
diced (skin on)
or milk of choice
butter or non-hydrogenated margarine
whole grain bread crusts
(or inside slices if that's what you have)
Take the bread out of the freezer if it's frozen. Preheat the oven to 400F.
Add berries, apple, sugar, and chia seeds to a large bowl and toss well.
Transfer to an 8x8 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla in the same bowl. (No need to wash it first.)
Tear (or cut) the bread heels into bite-sized pieces and add to the bowl. Toss well, ensuring that the bread is thoroughly soaked. Put it aside.
Roughly chop walnuts and mix together with sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Put that aside too.
When timer goes off, pull the dish out and turn the heat down to 350F.
Remove the foil and stir the fruit well.
Spread the egg-soaked bread evenly over top of the fruit.
Sprinkle evenly with the walnuts and sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, or until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden and crisp.
Serve with vanilla yogurt or ice cream for dessert, plain Greek yogurt if you want a more nutrition-packed breakfast.
