Fit and French Toast


Serves 2 people
serving size is 2 slices of toast

  • 4 slices of low calorie bread (Like Sara Lee 45 calorie OR Active Lifestyle 35 calorie whole grain white bread)
    • Older bread works best because it holds together and doesn't soak up as much liquid (cooks easier)
  • 1/3 cup egg beaters or 3 egg whites
  • 2-4 Tablespoons skim milk (about 1/8-1/4 cup)
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Splash of vanilla extract, to taste
  • Cooking spray OR (1 Tablespoon Light butter spread such as Promise light or Smart Balance light)

  1. Preheat skillet on medium heat
  2. Beat together milk, egg beaters, cinnamon, and vanilla
  3. Spray the pan with cooking spray or melt 1.5 teaspoons butter spread on pan. (if pan is large enough for all 4 slices of bread add the entire 1Tablespoon of butter spread)
  4. Dunk bread quickly in batter, just enough to coat both sides.
    • DO NOT let bread soak in mixture because this will result in soggy and hard to cook french toast.
  5. Flip french toast after about 2 minutes, or until each side is golden brown.
