Whole Wheat French Toast




I made one of my favorite weekend breakfasts this morning...a lighter version of French Toast...

Ingredients:

4-6 Slices of Whole Wheat Bread
3 Egg Whites
1/4 Cup Milk of your choice (I used 1% lactose free milk)
Ground Cinnamon
Pam or other cooking spray
Optional Toppings: Butter or butter substitute, sugar free syrup, agave nectar, honey, fresh fruit, etc.

Directions:

Whisk together the milk and egg whites in a shallow dish. 
 

 
 
Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.  Place one slice of bread in the egg mixture and quickly turn it over to coat both sides (the longer you leave it in the egg mixture the more it will soak up).  Place the coated bread slice in the skillet. 
 
Sprinkle cinnamon over the side that is facing up. 
 

 
 
Cook for about two minutes and then flip to cook the other side.
 
 
 
Remove from the skillet and set aside. Repeat with the remaining bread slices.
 
My four and a half year old and three year old LOVE this French toast.  I'm sure some day they will realize that regular french toast isn't made from wheat bread and is a lot sweeter....but hopefully they will prefer this healthier version ;)
