• 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:

  • 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.
  • Add all the filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir to coat apple pieces, set aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 3 Bananas (diced) can be substituted for apples.
  • Note: Drizzle with 100% pure maple syrup if desired.
