Baked Apple French Toast is the perfect dish to serve for breakfast one morning if you have a lot of guests over or for a great Fall brunch! 4 WW points

I made this apple baked French toast recipe with ingredients all from Aldi. I've become one of those Aldi nerds you read about online. Did you know there is even a Facebook Group dedicated Aldi Fans like myself called The Aldi Nerd Community? If you're an Aldi lover check out that group!?
I was one of those lucky people that was able to snag a loaf of the Zero Net Carb bread they had there this week. I was reading in the group that people were being greedy and hoarding it by the cases so a lot of people did not get to try it. I really liked the bread and it will make eating low carb a breeze now. I don't do full-blown keto or low carb diet but I do like to watch my carb intake when I find myself eating too many carbs.
If you have a bunch of guests coming over for Thanksgiving and you need something to serve for breakfast try this baked apple french toast. It is especially yummy in the Fall when it starts getting cool out. Everybody has bread around that time for stuffing so why not? I added some cooked apples that I sauteed in a pan with some brown sugar and cinnamon. It was really good served with some slices of bacon on the side.
How do you make Baked Apple French Toast?
Cut up bread in chunks. Pour all the wet ingredients including brown sugar into a bowl with the bread in it and let it soak while the apples are cooking.
In a cast-iron skillet, saute the apples with the sugar, butter, and cinnamon until the apples are cooked through.
In an 8X8 pan dump the soaked bread mixture into the pan and then cover it with the apples. Bake at 375 for 45. Serve with bacon, sausage, eggs or whatever you like.
Tips for Baked Apple French Toast
If you don't want to use brown sugar use a brown sugar substitute. You will have to look up conversions for what brand you are using because I am not familiar with all of them. I don't think it will help lower the points down very much with this recipe. 3 tablespoons of regular brown sugar are only 6 points.
I mentioned the type of bread I used above. If you do not have an Aldi store find a low point of bread such as Sarah Lee or Village Hearth for only 1 point.
Use whatever apples you like or have on hand. I tried this with honey crisp and Granny Smith apples and both were good.
Serve with some sugar-free maple syrup and whipped topping. If I were serving this to guests I'd make some scrambled eggs and bacon to have on the side.

I am not affiliated with WW formerly known as Weight Watchers in any way. I am just a member who likes to create WW recipes and share them with everyone. Freestyle is the name of the current program of WW and smart points are calculated for the recipes. Some blogs list them as freestyle smart points and some list them as smart points. There is no difference between the 2.
How is this a WW recipe?
NO FOOD is off limits on WW and WW themselves stresses that a lot on their social media pages. That is one reason why I love WW. You can pretty much eat ANYTHING to lose weight just as long as you stay in your daily points range or are in a calorie deficit.
How does Weight Watchers work?
Each recipe or food has a Smart Points value. This is calculated using calories, saturated fat, protein, and sugar. It is best to stay away from foods that are loaded with saturated fat and sugar on the plan because those foods are higher in points. When you register with Weight Watchers you are given a daily set of points to target based on your age, gender, height, and activity level. Think of it as an easier way to track your macros.
