Vanilla-Cinnamon French Toast

I match hearty whole-grain bread with the warm, comforting flavor notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg to make a lighter, healthier version of traditional French toast.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 Serving
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 dash cinnamon, ground
  • 1 dash nutmeg, ground
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 slices bread, 100% whole-wheat
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (or confectioner’s sugar)

In a small bowl, whip the whole egg plus the egg white with the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract.

Generously coat a skillet with oil spray and preheat over medium-high heat. Dunk and coat both slices of bread in the egg mixture. Place the bread slices in the skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until crisp. Drizzle each slice with 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or dust each slice with 1 teaspoon confectioner’s sugar).
