Low Calorie French Toast

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 slices of white bread
  • 8 oz. almond milk
  • 2 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1 pinch nutmeg powder
  • 1 fresh vanilla pod/ 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Orange zest as required
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. honey/ strawberry syrup

Instructions

Ø  Step 1: In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk. Make sure no lumps are left.

Ø  Step 2: Now add milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat it thoroughly. Cut a vanilla bean from the middle. And scrape it out with the tip of the knife and add to the bowl. Peel the orange zest and also add to the mixture.

Ø  Step 3: Preheat the non-stick pan and melt the butter over medium heat. You can also spray the oil on the skillet to make a golden brown crispy crust from the outside. Preheating the pan will also cook the batter immediately. But if the pan is cold from the start, it will ruin the bread texture.

Ø  Step 4: Once the pan is on the stove, start dipping the bread in a batter until it feels heavy on your hands and completely saturated. Now it’s time to cook.

Ø  Step 5: Place the soaked bread on the pan and let it cook undisturbed. When the bottom gets golden brown, flip it to the other side.

Ø  Step 6: Now serve it on a plate and drizzle it with syrup of your choice until your mouth gets watery.

Notes

Here are some pro tips for serving

  • You can plate it with some fresh berries and other fruits.
  •  If you want a little bit fancy, then sprinkle some sea salt to enhance the sweetness and raise the flavor of toast.
  • Coconut flakes will also go better with French toast.
  • Serving it with fresh or flavored Greek yogurt adds a healthy touch.
  • If you don’t have any allergies to peanuts, add a tablespoon of gooey peanut butter and jelly to it.

Points to note:

  •  Don’t soak bread for long; it will start disintegrating
  •   Keep an eye on it while cooking the bread; it could burn anytime.
  • When the bread is on the pan, slow the flame.
