Last week we ate with my Uncle Don at Cracker Barrel. I got french toast, which I never get, and it was delicious. When we found ourselves with a lot of eggs this week I decided that I wanted to make my own (healthier) french toast. It’s so easy and super delicious!
Ingredients (f0r one serving, increase as needed)
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread (I used Nature’s Own Honey Wheat, 70 calories per slice, because that’s what Michael eats at lunch and that’s what we happened to have in the cabinet)
- 1 egg
- milk (approximately 2 TBSP but I don’t really measure, I just eyeball it)
- vanilla (approximately 2 tsp, again I don’t measure)
- sweetener (I use the off brand of Splenda, 1-2 TBSP depending on how sweet you like it and what sweetener you use…yep, still not measuring)
- cinnamon (1-2 tsp, depends on how cinnamon-y you like stuff)
- butter (I use Smart Balance)
- syrup (I use sugar free)
- any other topping you might want (strawberries, powdered sugar, blueberry syrup, whipped cream)
Mix egg, milk, vanilla, Splenda, and cinnamon in a bowl. Make sure to mix well (if you don’t you might have clumps of egg white that stick together and make a big eggy blob on your french toast, yuck). Pour the egg mixture onto a plate or in a shallow dish. Dip both sides of each piece of bread in the egg mixture. Lay bread in a heated skillet; cook until golden brown then flip and cook the other side. Top with more cinnamon, sugar, other toppings, butter, syrup, etc. and enjoy!
This recipe is South Beach Phase 2/3. Using the Nature’s Own Honey Wheat bread, Splenda, Smart Balance, and sugar free syrup, this comes out to be 260 calories for one serving (2 pieces of french toast).
