My goal with this blog is to take naughty meals and make them skinny. Take something delicious that you can’t have it everyday like Pizza or Pancakes and shave off calories, adding metabolism boosting ingredients to make it something you CAN have everyday. Well hello! French Toast needed to be made skinny and after months of my friends Trent and Ashley H. begging for a skinny French Toast recipe I finally found the time to make it.
I know it seems strange to use sourdough bread, but any other bread just turns to mush in the batter. Try it out yourself I know you will love it, plus the slices are so BIG you can cut them in half and it’s still the same size as a whole slice of bread. My secret weapon is vanilla extract, I used to make a naughty version of french toast and people always raved about it, it was the vanilla… now you know my secret.
If you are making this for a brunch and have loads of other food on the table you can even slice these into 4ths to serve more people. If you are starving and have 3 slices you are only at 270 calories, not too shabby
1 large Egg
1 Egg White
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Maple Syrup plus more for topping
3 slices Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread
1 tsp Powdered Sugar
Heat a griddle or large pan on medium and lightly coat with cooking spray.
In a pie pan or shallow bowl combine the egg, egg white, cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup and whisk until all is combined, don’t worry if the cinnamon clumps, just get as much smooth as you can. Then dip (one at a time) the bread into the egg mixture letting it sit in the mixture on each side for half a minute to soak up all the eggy goodness. Once each side is coated hold over the pie pan so that any excess will drip off and then place on your hot griddle.
Let each side cook until golden brown before flipping it about 3 minutes, DO NOT SQUISH you want them fluffy and delicious. Flip and repeat, once your french toast slice is done move to a plate and slice (on an angle, see picture) in half top with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
For each tsp of maple syrup you top with add 17 calories.
Each slice (1/2 a slice of bread) has:
