Hello, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and were able to spend time with family and friends!
I have a delicious, but simple, French toast recipe to share today! Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. I would eat breakfast for every meal, and in college, sometimes I actually did. (No regrets there!)
French toast easily tops my list of favorite breakfast foods. But, it isn’t always the healthiest choice, especially when going out for breakfast. The thick, dense bread combined with warm maple syrup quickly packs on the calories. While this type of splurge is okay occasionally, it isn’t something I like to do often.
With a few simple switches, French toast can be made healthy at home! This recipe satisfies any French toast craving and is absolutely delicious.
Simple French Toast
- 4 slices whole wheat bread (I use 35-calorie slices.)
- 1/4 c nonfat milk (substitute with any type of milk)
- 1 egg
- 3 egg whites
- 1 tsp cinnamon (use more if you’d like)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
1. Preheat griddle to medium setting, and spray with cooking spray.
2. Whisk milk, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla together in a small bowl.
3. Dunk bread into the mixture, allowing the mixture to coat both sides.
4. Place each slice of bread on griddle.
5. Cook for about 4 minutes. Flip once and cook for about 3 more minutes.
6. Place two pieces (or all four if you’re hungry) on a plate, and top with banana slices and light maple syrup. Enjoy!
Note – If you get low on the mixture, add a little more milk.
I’m not sure if I could ever get rid of maple syrup completely; I like it too much! Instead, I use light versions that do not contain artificial sweeteners, and I add banana slices to sweeten it up naturally.
Let me know what you think!
Question of the Day:
Do you use syrup on your French toast? What is your favorite topping?
