I knew this recipe sounded familiar. This is originally Ellie Krieger's Blueberry Almond French Toast Bake. Whoever Posted This Recipe Should Be Ashamed Of Copying Someone Else's Recipe And Calling It Your Own.

I loved this!! I used a whole wheat yoga bread that has cranberries and seeds and nuts in it, but otherwise I followed it exactly, and my kids LOVED it. We didn't even put extra syrup on it. This will definitely be a new staple for us.

I liked everything except for the whole wheat bread. You just can get rid of the healthy whole wheat taste. Next time, I'll try white bread. It was still delicious.
