French Toast

(2 servings)

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites (We use Eggland’s Best eggs)
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 slices of Ezekiel bread (or another whole grain bread)
  • 1/2 cup of berries
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)

Directions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, blend egg whites, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract one slice at a time. Next, place the bread in the batter and let it soak for about 1 minute on each side. Once both sides are equally coated with a generous amount of batter, place the bread on a pre-heated nonstick skillet (coated with nonstick spray). Allow each side to cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • After removing bread from the heat, place a ½ cup of berries on top and add a dash of powdered sugar and a drizzle of honey if you desire! Enjoy!
