1 Serving: 2 Triangles

SmartPoints: 9




Ingredients

2 whole eggs

2 egg whites

1 1/2 cups 1% milk, (almond or soy will also work)

2 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

9 Slices whole grain bread

FILLING:

3 cups finely diced uncooked apple pieces (Honey Crisp or Gala are both great in this recipe)

3 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/3 cup diced raw pecans

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Add the first 6 ingredients to a medium mixing bowl, whisk to combine. Lightly spray the inside of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Add all the filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir to coat apple pieces, set aside.
  3. Cut bread slices into triangles (that’s in half, just triangle shaped). Place one layer of bread (6 triangles) on the bottom of the slow cooker, add ¼ of the filling and repeat until there are 3 layers of bread. Add the remaining filling to the top.
  4. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and cook on high 2 to 2-1/2 or low 4 hours, or until bread has soaked up the liquid.
  5. 3 Bananas (diced) can be substituted for apples.
  6. Note: Drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup if desired.
