Apple Garnish:

French Toast:

  • Add the eggs, low fat milk, cinnamon and sweetener to a bowl. Mix using a fork.
  • Grease a non-stick pan with a little butter (you can use paper towel so you don't add too much butter) and heat it over medium heat.
  • Dip one bread slice into the mixture and turn it over, until it absorbs the liquid.
  • Place the bread slice in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes on each side (depending on the desired doneness and the thickness of the bread slices).
  • Repeat with the other bread slices.
  • Serve with the apple garnish and maple syrup.
