Awesome Blueberry French Toast Casserole

0 from 0 ratings

The arrival of spring has seemed to renew our social calendar, and now we are planning for meals to be enjoyed outside on the patio for the first time in months. Spring presents a lot of opportunities for large gatherings, and for one of my favorite meals, brunch. Easter, Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day are all great occasions for preparing this healthy, Paleo-friendly French toast casserole. The bread soaks up the almond milk and cinnamon mixture when everything is baked together, providing a deliciously sweet start to the day.

Awesome Blueberry French Toast Casserole- holy moly! If I could eat this every morning I would.



I suggest making the bread at least day before preparing this recipe, to give the loaf proper time to cool. Or if you happen to have half a loaf of bread to use up, I can think of no better use. That is in fact why I originally created this recipe – looking for a use for leftover sandwich bread. There is a full tutorial on baking Paleo bread here.

Once all of the ingredients are mixed together, place your baking on the lower rack of the oven to bake. This way the top of the casserole shouldn’t burn before the rest of it can cook through evenly. Once you remove the casserole from the oven, allow it to cool and set for 15-20 minutes before serving. This casserole would also travel well, in case you are heading to a brunch and need to reheat it quickly in the oven.

I served this casserole as breakfast for dinner, and then got to enjoy leftovers for actual breakfast the next few days as well as a sweet, decadent way to wake up. I really like the combination of French toast with blueberries, but you could easily introduce other kids of berries to this casserole. Once strawberry season rolls around I will definitely be trying that as a topping. For other toppings, you could stick to the classic maple syrup, or go with a coconut whipped cream.

  1. Hi. I made this for Easter breakfast. I doubled the recipe and spread it out in an 11 x 13 pan to feed my family but as long as I had it in the oven (over an hour-and-a-half, all told) the egg didn’t cook through in all places. As a result, it didn’t go over very well. Any advice?

    • Sorry to hear that it didn’t turn out. If you double the recipe, spread it out over two baking dishes so that the layers aren’t too thick and the egg can cook through properly. Let me know if that helps!

  2. Any chance you know the glycemic load of the french toast, prepared exactly as your recipe states? I’m trying to prove that I’m eating exactly as the nutritionists asked me to & that it is the new meds that are not working for me at all. Prepared the paleo bread exactly as recipe.

  3. Hello Bec,
    How is it someone soooo young knows soooo much about food, in particular Paleo? My wife and I embraced the Paleo way of eating months ago but continue to search new and exciting Paleo Recipes. Thanks for educating us nutritionally.
    Warm regards,
