It is another rainy day in Texas and I wanted to make a delicious breakfast for my two boys. I absolutely love french toast and the original always left me feeling sick and gave me a major sugar rush. When I was a child, before I was allowed to use the stove I would soak my bread in egg and microwave it. Thankfully, my cooking skills have matured since then and I know how to make some delicious french toast, that is fully on my Trim Healthy Mama plan and is every bit as tasty as the original. Those who are following THM this is an E meal.
1 cup of egg whites
5 slices of Ezekiel bread (I use this kind and I find it in the freezers at Kroger)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 Tbs water
Whisk the egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, and water together. I like to use water in my eggs because it makes them nice and fluffy. I also use it in omelets.
Spray a nonstick skillet with a light coating of coconut oil and turn the heat to medium. Soak the Ezekiel bread in the egg white mixture until its slightly spongey. Put the bread in the skillet and cook for about 3-5 min on each side, or until it is nice and golden brown.
Top with some powdered Erythritol. I buy mine from THM and put about 1/4 in my single cup ninja and blend it til its powdered. It taste exactly like powdered sugar, but does not impact your blood sugar level. I enjoyed some nonfat greek yogurt and some fresh strawberries on the side.
It was baby approved too!
