Yesterday I made Mickey Mouse French Toast for my kids. While the standard boxed or restaurant variety of French Toast isn’t healthy, my made over version is yummy, low-calorie AND good for you!
Healthy Mickey Mouse French Toast
- 4 slices Arnold Healthfull Flaxseed & Fiber bread
- Fat-free egg substitute
- Almond extract
- Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 packet Stevia
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Mix egg substitute with the almond extract, almond milk, stevia and cinnamon. Dip the slices of bread in the mixture, one slice at a time. Place in a non-stick pan sprayed with fat-free cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 1-2 minutes per side. Cut out Mickey Mouse head with cookie cutters, sprinkle with powdered sugar. For a grown-up version (even though personally, I love the Mickey Mouse heads) cut up the remaining french toast that is leftover after cutting out Mickey Mouse and serve in a bowl full of strawberries. Yum-o!!
I struggle to get my kids to eat breakfast every morning, but they gobbled this up before school. I felt so good knowing that they were eating something healthy, yet they thought it was a special treat! Win-win!
