Last weekend a couple good things happened around here. One of my closest friends and her fiancé cruised into town for a (too short) visit. Fall arrived and while it brought cooler temperatures, Fall didn’t mess with the beautiful blue, sunny skies we have been experiencing since June {I know, I know – stop talking about the weather already… I’m working on it}.

Combine those two things and you have a celebration! A celebration that obviously needed to include a hearty, homemade and healthy brunch with Fall flavors.

You may remember my three other variation of this recipe {Coconut with BananasPumpkin Spice and Blueberry-Vanilla}.

If you are a newer reader, let me give you the lowdown of these Overnight Baked French Toasts. Ready? 

They are easy as hell! Bottom line – when you have guests or a morning crowd to feed, things can get crazy, especially if you have a nearly 3-year old throwing trains, demanding toast cut into triangles and hexagons and dumping water on himself to get a rise out of you.

You mix everything up, pour it into a casserole dish, shove it in the fridge and forget about it.

Until the next morning, that is, when you have that crowd to feed. Then you just bake and serve.

Breakfast for 12 {and just 5 Points Plus Each}. Done and still in my pajamas.
