Berry Overnight Breakfast Casserole

In this healthy breakfast casserole recipe, you simply combine the ingredients in a pan, let it sit overnight, and enjoy the next morning.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 1 hour
Yield 4 - 6 servings


  • 2 1/2 cups fresh berries
  • 1/2 lb thick bread
  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 2/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, agave, or honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, optional


  • *It’s best to use thick crusty bread, and let the bread sit out—uncovered—for a day before using. You technically can use sliced sandwich-type bread if you don’t mind a moist and slightly gummy texture. It’s still a good idea to let the bread sit out a day.
    Grease an 8-inch pan. (Or double the recipe for a 9x13.) Cut the bread into approximately 1-inch pieces and layer evenly in the pan. Whisk together the applesauce, milk, maple, and vanilla (omit if using vanilla-flavored milk), then pour this mixture evenly over the bread. Spread the berries over the top, then cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, all you have to do is preheat the oven to 350 F, put the pan in the center rack, and bake 1 hour or until bread is lightly golden. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.
