Whole-Grain French Toast


  • ½ cup egg substitutes or 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup low-fat milk
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 8 slices 100% whole-grain bread
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In pie plate, whisk together egg substitute, milk, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.
  3. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat to medium heat. Quickly dip each bread slice in the milk mixture to lightly coat both sides. Let excess mixture drip back into plate. Cook 2 slices at a time in skillet until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer French toast to cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining bread and milk mixture. Place cookie sheet with French toast in hot oven and bake 5-6 minutes or until heated through. 
  4. Heat syrup in small saucepan. Stir in blueberries. Serve with blueberry syrup drizzled over each serving.

Note: sugar-free syrup can be substituted.
