Author: Jackie Alpers
Serves 2


  • 4 pieces light whole grain bread
  • 1 cup egg substitute
  • ¼ cup non-fat milk
  • 1 T. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 T. 100% pure maple syrup
  • light butter


  • Spray a large skillet with canola cooking spray & heat to medium/low.
  • Whisk together the egg, milk, cinnamon and vanilla until frothy.
  • Soak the bread in the mixture for 10 seconds on each side.
  • Add the soaked bread to the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and cover. Let sit for 2 minutes. This makes the french toast fluffier.
