DIRECTIONS:
 
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F and spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. Slice bread into cubes and set aside.

2. For the sauce: Combine strawberries, rhubarb, lemon juice, sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 30-40 minutes, or until desired thickness.

3. For the crumble: Combine oats, almonds, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Drizzle oil all over and stir until evenly coated over all ingredients.

4. In a large bowl, mix together eggs and milk. Add in sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and stir until combined.

5. Place half of the bread cubes on the bottom of the baking dish. Add some of the strawberry rhubarb sauce followed by the rest of the bread cubes. Place the sliced strawberries and rhubarb over the bread cubes and pour the egg mixture on top.

6. Cover and let sit overnight.

7. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Remove from the fridge and add crumble. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the French toast is set and golden brown. Serve with a drizzle of the remaining sauce on top.
