Baked Blueberry French Toast

There are two simple "rules" that I try to abide by when cooking.  One, it has to be healthy. Two, is has to be easy to make, because Martha Stewart doesn't live here.

This simple, yet delicious, blueberry French toast recipe was very easy to make.  To make it healthier I used organic sprouted grain bread.  I substituted the 8 egg whites for 4 whole eggs.  The egg yolk is very high in nutrients, if the eggs are of good quality.  If you'd like help deciding what a good quality egg should look like, check out this post.

The grace of God seemed to be on me for this recipe, since what I'd originally planned on making I turned out to not have all the ingredients for.  At the last minute I switched to this recipe.  I had exactly the right amount of almond milk left, and the exact amount of almond extract left that I needed for the recipe (the almond extract had been in my cupboard for a couple years since I don't use it often).

I didn't have fresh blueberries, which would have added a bit better flavor, but the frozen ones worked out well.

The only thing I would alter from in the recipe is that most recipes tend to be overly sweet, but this one was mildly sweet.  I will probably substitute maple syrup for the honey next time.
