Baked Blueberry French Toast

Baked Blueberry French Toast is one of those recipes that may look simple but is actually quite spectacular! Cubes of bread are smothered in a heavenly pumpkin, maple, cinnamon, topped with tasty blueberries, and baked until perfectly warm and toasty. It's the perfect way to add a little variety to your breakfast routine.

* This is by far the best sugar free pancake syrup but it can be difficult to find. I normally have luck at Walmart but if you absolutely cannot find it, you can substitute other brands.
