I make it this way all the time with one change, I bake it at 400 for about 10 minutes and then flip for a couple more. No need for butter or oil that way. Can make a batch and walk away while cooking which is nice. I use low carb high fiber breads that have 35-45 calorie per slice. Or sometimes use Angelic sprouted 7 grain bread which has 60 calorie per slice and is a great bread. These tips get calorie count low when making it for myself.
I'm with lazyme on the cinnamon & vanilla thing, & in fact, I used a generous measure of both! These are great with the egg substitute, something I don't usually use, but will have to stock from now on! A great recipe that lends itself to easy variations! Thanks for sharing!

We really liked this recipe, and don't miss the fat at all. DH likes his french toast very soaked before cooking, so we doubled the liquid. Other flavor combos would work well here too, like Grand Marnier and OJ, or Amaretto and almond extract. The french toast would also be great with my recipe#242479. Thank you gertc!

I am 30 years old and I love to cook for my family of four.... I am married with two wonderful children.... That is them in the picture above.... It's a little old though.... Wesley will be five in June and Katelyn will be eight in June.... I'm always looking for new things to cook and try out on all of my family.... I'm also a teacher to 17 wonderful 3 yr. olds.... I'm always looking for quick, easy, and wonderful tasting food to fix that my whole family will enjoy... My husband is a picky meat and potatoes man.... SO, any time I fix something new that he likes, is amazing.... Wesley is like his daddy and loves to eat meat and potatoes, but he's also real good about trying other foods.... Katelyn, will eat whatever she can get her hands on.... Katelyn has some special needs and we have to watch what she eats and how she eats....
