How to Make Healthy French Toast!

French toast is easily one of everyone's favorite breakfast. However...we all know it's not the healthiest. Traditional french toast is filled with fat, sugar, and usually white bread, and let's not forget- syrup filled with high fructose corn syrup! But, thankfully it's actually super easy to make it healthy! Let's go!

You will Need:
  • 2 slices of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread (or any healthy bread of choice)
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tbs. almond milk
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. stevia to sweeten (optional)
Instead of cooking the french toast in butter or Pam, I use an organic coconut oil cooking spray. Whisk together egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, almond milk, and stevia. Dip each piece of bread in the egg mixture and soak each side until it's really moist. Cook your french toast in a pan over medium heat and flip after a few minutes. Top with your favorite toppings!

Healthy Topping Ideas:
  • fresh berries
  • banana slices
  • natural almond or peanut butter 
  • crushed walnuts
  • 100% pure maple syrup (not the chemically laden ole' Aunt Jemima!)
  • honey
  • sprinkle of stevia (instead of powdered sugar)
Xoxo, Stephanie
