Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cut into 20 slices
  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches in juice, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk

  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • Maple syrup, optional

Directions

  1. Arrange half of the bread in a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with peaches, pecans and remaining bread.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites, milk, sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
