Mother’s Day breakfast is always such a special opportunity to shower your mom with love and attention (or to let your own kids shower you with said love and attention!). This Raspberry Macadamia Nut Overnight French Toast Casserole for Mother’s Day needs to be on your menu!
…BUT, if you’re like me and do a majority of the cooking in your home (or let’s be real, ALL of the cooking), expecting a gourmet breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day might be a little unrealistic.
The best thing about overnight casseroles is they’re usually pretty easy to prep… just mixing some ingredients and a little assembly and in the fridge it goes on the night before. And then you just have to pop it in the oven in the morning.
So your family can make it for you, or you can make it for yourself, and all it needs is a quick run in the oven on Mother’s Day!
What’s so special about this Raspberry Macadamia Nut Overnight French Toast Casserole for Mother’s Day?
All the flavors in this casserole (raspberries, white chocolate, macadamia nut, vanilla, almond, cinnamon, maple… yes, there’s a lot!) combine together into the most decadent tasting sweet breakfast you’ve ever had! AND it’s lower in sugar than most recipes like this. With just a small amount of maple syrup and the natural sweetness of frozen raspberries this is one Mother’s Day breakfast that won’t leave you with a sugar crash afterwards. In fact, frozen raspberries are a great way to add some natural sweetness to your breakfast any time of year… they’re always in season in your freezer! Read more about that here.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your bread, eggs, milk, frozen raspberries, and all the other goods, and get to prepping!
