This recipe makes Makes 1 serving

2 teaspoons butter
1 apple (like Gala, Fuji or Honeycrisp), peeled (optional), cored and sliced
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon maple syrup
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

French Toast
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 dash ground cinnamon
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 slices reduced-calorie whole grain bread (about 50 calories per slice)
Aerated whipped cream


Liberally coat a skillet with oil spray (canola or vegetable oil) and heat over medium flame. Add the butter, and once it’s melted, add the apple, cinnamon, and maple syrup.

Stir to combine. Lower the heat and sauté the apples until they are cooked and gooey, about 7 minutes. Add the vanilla extract with about 1 minute remaining. Stir to combine.

Meanwhile, make the French toast. In a small bowl, whip together the egg, egg white, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

Dunk and coat each bread slice in the egg mixture, and cook on the grill or skillet until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.

Top with caramelized apples, a dollop of whipped cream and dash of ground cinnamon!
