Kids love French toast!

Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to give you another recipe from my upcoming cooking class for kids. This is my own version of French toast - always delicious and surprisingly healthy. The trick is in the spices. You can really punch up a recipe by adding unique scents and spices, especially those that invoke memories of your favorite holidays! Kids have fun helping because they get to use cookie cutters. Check out this recipe:

Healthy French Toast
·         Challah, sliced 1 inch thick
·         3 eggs
·         ½ cup skim milk
·         ½ teaspoon cinnamon
·         ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
·         ¼ teaspoon vanilla
·         Cooking spray
·         Powdered sugar
·         Sugar free syrup
·         Fresh berries
1.      Crack eggs and separate whites from yolks. You only need the whites so you can throw out the yolks or ask your mom or dad if they need them for another recipe.
2.      Put the whites in a shallow bowl and add milk, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla. Whisk until combined.
3.      You can use a cookie cutter and cut into 2 slices of bread. Keep shapes close to each other to cut as many as possible.
4.      Coat a large griddle or pan with cooking spray and heat up over medium heat.
5.      Quickly dip bread into your egg white mixture using a fork, one side for 2-3 seconds, then the other.
6.      Pull the bread out of the egg and put into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side. Use a spatula to flip to the other side.
7.      Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with syrup and berries.
