We love French toast at my house. We make it just about every Sunday. I developed a healthier version, and this recipe is great. It uses maple syrup or agave nectar, egg whites, a touch of cinnamon and whole grain bread to produce an awesome Healthy and Light French Toast. You can also slice the bread into thin sticks to make French toast sticks (kids love this). Enjoy during the week or weekend and on holidays such as Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Father’s Day.
Healthy Whole Grain French Toast
6 large egg whites
11/2 cups skim milk
21/2 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar
11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
8 slices whole wheat bread
1 teaspoon butter or cooking spray
Maple Syrup, agave nectar
1. Combine egg whites, milk, maple syrup or agave nectar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk until the mixture is well blended. Place 2 slices whole wheat bread in batter, and soak for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt butter or heat oil in skillet, swirling pan to spread it around. Lift bread slices out of batter, letting them drain slightly, and place bread in skillet. Cook bread slices, in batches until golden, flipping once (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Serve with maple syrup or agave nectar.
