Diet French Toast Bites

(2 servings)

  • 2 slices of whole-wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters or other liquid egg substitute
  • 3 Tablespoons of low-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt (optional)
I found this to be totally enjoyable. It didn't feel like diet food at all. I used a wholegrain cinnamon raisin bread. The bread was noticeably dryer than a non-wholegrain variety, but once the finished pieces were dipped in sugar-free maple syrup or drizzled with honey, it just felt like terrific French toast. Naturally, I missed the experience of smearing butter and dousing pure maple syrup over everything, but I was satisfied and my craving for French toast was quenched.

How To Make Diet French Toast Bites

Cut each slice of bread into 4 squares. I leave the crust on, but you can remove it you want.

In a large shallow bowl, mix together the egg substitute, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and, if you want, the salt.

Prepare a large skillet on a heat just above medium with no-fat cooking spray.

Add all the bread pieces to the "egg" mixture bowl and gently scoot them around with your fingers -- flipping each piece so both sides are drenched and all the mixture is absorbed.

Start cooking the bread pieces in the skillet a batch (as many pieces as you can fit in the skillet) at a time. Brown each slice for about 3 or 4 minutes. Give the skillet another thin spray of cooking oil between each batch.

Serve and enjoy!

I like this with maple syrup or jam on top. Bananas slices and vanilla yogurt is a fun topping too!
