Pumpkin Almond French Toast Casserole

Thanksgiving! You’re here!

I don’t have time to post much, since I’m going on six hours of cooking and I’m not even close to done.

All I have to say is…make this. Do it now. It’s easy. And PLEASE stick around for our insanely awesome no bake, soy-free, gluten-free pumpkin pie recipe, coming soon!

4-5 cups cubed crusty bread (I used a mix of ciabatta and French bread)

1 cup pureed pumpkin

1 1/4 cup coconut milk

3/4 cup raw cashews

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup raisins

2 tsp pure vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon

  • Blend together all ingredients except bread, almonds and raisins until smooth
  • In a greased casserole dish, pour in bread cubes, almonds and raisins
  • Pour pumpkin mix over bread and then cover and refrigerate overnight
  • The next morning, remove cover and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes

Cabbage Veggie Soup


Are you ready for the EASIEST and arguably, the BEST soup I have ever had? I honestly can’t figure out why this soup is so good. Which sounds weird, but very true. It’s ridiculously basic and nothing about it qualifies as “best ever” material. And yet, somehow, it still tastes like nothing I’ve ever had. […]
