Diet French Toast Bites
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. (This recipe was submitted in 2003. It was tested and photographed in October 2015.)
- 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)
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!
