I love French Toast and I love pears and I really love my crock pot! So why not combine all three? I'm also diabetic, so sugar is a no-no, but I still have a sweet tooth - so what's a poor girl to do? I think you'll be happy with the way I combined my loves and solved the sweet tooth dilemma! Give my recipe a try and wake up to yummy!
In a large mixing bowl, beat the pears until they are broken into small pieces. Add eggs, 1/4 cup splenda, vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and milk. Mix well and set aside.
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter (1 minute on high should do it). Add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 cup splenda brown sugar and oats. Mix with fork until crumbly. Set aside.
Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Take 6 slices of bread and tear them into large pieces and layer in the bottom of the crock pot. Pour 1/3 of pear mixture over the bread. Then sprinkle 1/3 of the oat mixture on top of that. Repeat these three layers (bread, pears, oats) two more times.
Turn crock pot on low. Go to bed and set alarm for 7 hours of sleep! Wake up to the delicious aroma and yummy taste of Pear French Toast! Make sure you don't give in to your snooze button - you don't want this to overcook (maximum cook time on low is 8 hours, so you can't sleep in - LOL!). Enjoy!
