If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you know that I absolutely love cooking and creating recipes, especially now in our new home and kitchen. I’ve made several recipes with Truvia® sweetener products, from dinner recipes to baked goods, even delicious drinks and cocktails!
What I love so much about using Truvia® is that their products are sweetened with stevia leaf extract, which helps reduce the amount of sugar in the recipes that my family and I love.
Finding an easy recipe to make for a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day can be a tough task. A breakfast casserole is a great option, because it serves plenty of people and is so easy to make! I like to prep things on Sunday morning so they’re ready for the week! Furthermore, perfect the breakfast does exist and it’s this french toast recipe and drink recipe for your next brunch menu!

I made both of these recipes with Truvia ® Sweet Complete® Granulated All-Purpose Sweetener and I love it because it has zero calories per serving and sweetens and measures cup-for-cup to sugar, so it’s easy to substitute in any recipe. Moreover, something about this recipe tastes like Christmas morning! It’s one of my favorite brunch recipes and you can totally sub out your milk and bread options for any dietary restrictions for this sweet dish. For example, swap out white bread for a gluten free option or use almond milk instead of dairy. It’s great because there isn’t really added sugar, since we are swapping it out for Truvia. The entire family will be begging for this as a weekend brunch each week!
I hope you’ll watch my video and give both of these sweet brunch recipes a try. They’re delicious and so easy to make and I think you’ll enjoy their flavors. Cheers to your next brunch!
