Morning comforts

Hi all! Yesterday I had another very successful cooking class with my lovely students...we're doing 7 weeks of healthy versions of breakfast foods. We made the French toast recipe I shared with you a few weeks ago. For my final class, I think I'm going to surprise them with a healthy take on a dessert French toast! Shhh...don't tell them. This recipe comes from Ellie Krieger, a fabulous cookbook author who creates delicious recipes with half the calories and fat. Here's a sneak peek of that 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.

Happy baking!
