Healthy breakfast: Cinnamon French toast

Updated: 01-15-2011

Try this healthy version of a breakfast favorite. In a small bowl, combine 4 egg whites, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg. Whisk. Then dip 4 slices cinnamon bread into the mixture, coating both sides. Place a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles as it hits the pan, add the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes each. Place 2 slices on warmed plates. Add 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to each and enjoy.
