Granola topping

  1. In a large casserole dish, add in the cubed bread. In a medium size bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Add in the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Combine and pour over the bread.
  2. Make sure all the bread is well coasted. Place the dish in the fridge for an overnight soak. 
  3. As for the topping add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Place in the fridge overnight. 
  4. In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Using a spoon, scatter the topping evenly around the bread.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Be sure that all the bread is evenly cooked and there is little wobbling. 
  7. Serve with your favourite topping!

One of my favourite go-to-meal preps! Make it in the evening and wake up to an irresistibly delicious breakfast! It super easy and quick. I love how fluffy and tender the inside is and how gloriously crispy the top is. Try it for one of your back-to-school breakfasts! 

Substitute: Almond milk for 2% milk and gluten-free bread for whole grain bread.
