Sunday morning is a much cherished time for my husband and me. It is the only day that we are both off of work so we always enjoy being a little lazy before church and we typically cook a special treat for breakfast. This weekend we made delicious French toast.
You may be thinking “No way will I ever have time to make this before church – we are lucky if we even have time to grab a granola bar to cram in on the way to church!” Well, I have good news for you. This French toast takes all of about 5 minutes to whip up.
My French toast recipe is ridiculously easy to make and on top of that I have included some options to lighten up the recipe and make it a little more health-friendly.
The recipe below is for 2 servings – but this recipe is easy to double, triple, or even cut in half if you are cooking for yourself! All you need to do is take the ingredients and multiply by 2 or 3, or divide in half. If you have any questions about altering the recipes for serving sizes, just post a comment below and I will be glad to help!
For my French toast, I used Sara Lee whole grain white bread. You can use any bread that you have on hand. I sometimes even use leftover wheat hotdog or hamburger buns so that they do not get thrown away! Another variation you can do with this French toast is to cut your bread or bun into slices and make homemade French toast sticks! Just follow the recipe, but pay close attention because I have found that the smaller pieces cook a little faster!
To keep it a little healthier, I also used Eggbeaters, almond milk, and stevia for my sweetener. If you do not have Eggbeaters on hand, but you want to keep it healthier, you can use 1 whole egg and one egg white in your egg mixture!
I topped my French toast with a little whipped cream, some fresh strawberries, and of course sugar free maple syrup! You can use any of your favorite toppings like fruit such as blueberries and bananas, nuts like walnuts or pecans, and even honey or apple butter! The possibilities are endless.
Here’s the skinny:
“Skinny-ish” French toast for two
4 slices of whole grain bread
½ cup egg beaters or 2 eggs
¼ cup almond milk or skim milk of choice
½ t cinnamon
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 packets of stevia or 1 teaspoon sugar
optional toppings: whipped cream, fruit, chopped nuts, maple syrup, honey, apple butter, etc.
I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
