This low-fat version of French toast uses cinnamon bread, but any type of bread would work.

Ingredients

(Serves 2)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 slices cinnamon bread
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the egg whites, vanilla and nutmeg. Whisk to mix evenly. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides.

Place a nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles as it hits the pan, add the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

Place 2 slices of French toast on warmed individual plates. Add 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to each. Serve immediately.
