High Protein & Low Fat Scrumptious Pumpkin French Toast

When it comes to fall, I crave all things pumpkin. Specifically, I begin to crave this pumpkin french toast. You won’t even know it’s healthy- promise. The best part (besides the taste) is it’s so easy to make. Even my husband loves this, and he is pretty picky about his breakfast indulgences.

Grocery List

  • 1/2 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Liquid egg whites or egg beaters
  • 2 packets of Truvia
  • Hearty sprinkle of Cinnamon
  • Olive oil pan spray (or PAM)
  • 3 slices choice of healthy bread- I use Sarah Lee Delightful or Sprouted Grain. A bread that is light and airy is best.
  • 1/4 cup choice of syrup: I use Sugar Free, Lite, or all natural Log Cabin’s. **High fructose syrups upset my stomach so I tend to stick to the lighter ones. Just avoid anything with aspartame !

Directions

  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, egg whites, Truvia, and cinnamon (a pinch of nutmeg if desired- I prefer without).
  2. Heat a skillet or pan to medium-high heat, spray lightly with olive oil spray or pan spray of choice
  3. Dip one piece of bread in the batter until entirely covered.
  4. Place the bread on the skillet/pan and cook until browned, then flip and brown other side (usually only takes about a minute per side, first piece cooks slower than the next two). Place on a plate when done.
  5. While the first piece is cooking, begin preparing the next piece. Repeat step #3 and #4 for the last two pieces of bread. *You may want to re-spray the pan between flips and pieces.
  6. Add 1/4 cup of your favorite syrup and whipped cream if desired ( I like 365 non-dairy whipped cream from Whole Foods).

**If they are cooking too fast, simply turn town the heat!
