    I found this helpful... thought someone else might too.In my recipes, how do I substitute Egg Beaters for whole eggs?
    For recipes, simply use Egg Beaters as follows:
    4 whole eggs = 1 cup Egg Beaters
    1 whole egg = 1/4 cup Egg Beaters
    1 egg white = 2 tbsp Egg Beaters

    I make this all the time but when the french toast is finished cooking, I top it with a half cup of sugar free applesauce then stick it in the microwave to heat it up. I put cinnamon and Splenda on top before eating. It is one of my very favorite "diet" breakfasts!!! - 3/15/09

    I skipped the Splenda - vanilla gives it plenty of sweetness. Also used light whole wheat bread. Excellent breakfast. - 5/10/14

    Tastes good i used whole eggs and omitted the splenda. i put mine in the oven at 425 for about 8minutes . I doubled the reciepe and ended up with 6 slices of bread and still had a little of the mixture left over. I poured the excess liquid on top of the bread and put it the oven. turned out great - 7/18/15

    Very yummy! I made enough to feed the family and they all loved it! I used Healthy Life bread (35 cal/slice) and couldn't taste a difference! i also used Vanilla silk, cinnamon and nutmeg. didn't have egg beaters, so I sub'd egg whites and a couple whole eggs. Going to try to freeze the rest! - 1/25/09

    Try using sara lee 35 calorie bread! The calories drop but he taste is still so good.
    I also subbed the milk for for sugar free almond mink (35 calories per cup)
    Ever calorie counts when you get to those final 15 lbs.

    I have never put sugar in my french toast batter, it's already sweet enough I find. Instead of syrup I use yogurt and fruit.

    Couldn't you use Healthy Lifestyle Whole Wheat bread? For 2 slices of bread total calories are only 70, and carbs are only 16. Nutmeg is also good on French Toast. - 7/26/15

    Very good recipe....didn't have any egg beaters so I used 2 EB's regular eggs.
    In my opinion they are 2nd best to egg beaters.

    I like to use just the egg beaters, a little lite soy milk, and add some nutmeg and cinnamon on the toast when it is done. Drizzle a little sugar free syrup on, and it is fantastico! - 1/23/09

    For french toast, I use real eggs (1 egg=one protein exchange), one 1oz slice of really stale bread (= one bread exchange), and 1/4 cup of whole milk is 1/4 of a milk exchange and only 13 optional calories out of 100/day. It's one of the few things that doesn't need lightening. - 5/8/17

    Did you know you can substitute sugar even equal or splenda sugar with stevia sugar which has 0 Calories? It also doesnt make a person who has allergies to equal or splenda like I do and still allows it to be just as sweet. So cut the calories with stevia. It may help with your recipes. - 12/31/14
