How To Cook: Healthy French Toast

by How To Mommy on 01.11.12

As you know by now, I love soaking up all the great information my Hy-Vee dietitian, Amanda, gives me at my Toddler Tidbits Class and in my weekly newsletter.

I’m constantly struggling to find great, healthy breakfasts for Baby O and Little Miss R.  While they are LOVING their smoothies, they can’t have them every day!

I was so excited when Amanda sent out her newest recipe – healthy french toast!  With only 123 calories per slice plus 2 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein, I can’t wait to see how the girls like this one.

Healthy French Toast

Yields: 6 slices
Each slice: 123 calories, 2 g. fat, 16 g. carbohydrates, 2 g. fiber, 8 g. protein, PointsPlus® value: 3

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup fat-free milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • 6 slices whole wheat bread
  • Cooking spray
  • Light pancake syrup or sliced fresh fruit (optional)

How To Make It:

  1. Thoroughly mix eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Dip both sides of the bread slices, one at a time, into egg mixture. Redip if necessary, until all of the egg mixture is absorbed into the bread.
  3. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat.
  4. Place dipped bread slices on heated skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until both sides are golden brown.
  5. Drizzle with pancake syrup or top with sliced fresh fruit (optional).
  6. Serve warm.

I will probably serve this with bananas, as they can’t seem to get enough bananas!  It was even Baby O’s first word.  🙂
