    I love having friends over on Sunday mornings for brunch. It’s more casual than a dinner party and getting together with friends is a great start to the day. French toast casserole has become my signature dish for brunch and I typically serve it with a fresh fruit salad and bacon. The casserole can be made ahead of time and will make the whole house smell delicious as it bakes in the morning.french toast casserole

    For brunch over the weekend I decided to test out a “better for you” version of my traditional french toast casserole. Kashi® recently launched a new line of Kashi® Organic Breakfast Superblends, which are gluten free, vegan and each serving has 15-16g of diverse plant protein. You can of course mix it into your morning smoothie, which I plan on doing this week, but it can also be used as a nutritional boost in muffins, pancakes, energy bites etc.

I definitely felt less guilty going in for a second serving! I also kept this french toast casserole low in sugar by using blueberries and maple syrup as natural sweeteners and dairy free by using almond milk.french toast casseroleKashi Organic Breakfast Superblends are available at Target.com and you can use code TGTKASHI  $10 off one Kashi Protein Powder (Kashi GoLean or Kashi Organic).Capture
