Healthy lower calorie alternative to stuffed french toast with a simple fruit syrup...recipe makes 1 serving, just duplicate it if serving a family!
-2 slices reduced calorie (light) wheat bread (The nutrition info for this recipe uses bread that is 40 cal/slice so make sure to recalculate info if you use different bread)
-1/2 cup Egg Beaters
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-1 tsp. ground cinnamon
-2 Tbsp. Philadelphia reduced fat strawberry cream cheese
-1 packet Sweet n' low or other zero calorie sweetener
-1/2 cup frozen strawberries (or other berries if you prefer)
-2 Tbsp water
-1 packet Sweet n' Low or other zero calorie sweetener
-Put frozen fruit, water, and sweetener in a small pot
-Heat until the fruit thaws and the mixture begins to thicken as the water evaporates (about 10 min). Stir occasionally.
*after the mixture is thickened and thawed, depending on what consistency you want your syrup, you can either leave it chunky or you can put it in a food processor to puree it. I personally just like to mash the fruit with a fork as it cooks which leaves some chunks in it)
For French Toast/Filling:
-Put 2 T. cream cheese in a small bowl
-Add 1 packet sweetener
-Stir to combine
-Spread cream cheese mixture between two slices of bread to make kind of a "sandwich"
-In a bowl, measure 1/2 c. egg beaters
-Add vanilla and cinnamon to egg beaters and stir to combine
-Quickly dip "sandwich" into the egg beaters on both sides
-Place on a hot griddle for about 2 min. on each side
-Top the stuffed french toast with the syrup and enjoy!
Makes 1 serving.
