Oo-La-Lard, Frere Jacque!!! If you’ve ever ordered French Toast at a restaurant on a Sunday morning, you want to think twice next time!

The Viva La French Toast Combo at I-Hop has 1200 calories!

And the Denny’s Fabulous French Toast Platter rings in at 1260!! Ding, Dang, Dong!

But, that doesn’t mean you have to say au revoir to French Toast forever, you just have to make this skinny version at home. Since it’s super simple, super quick, and has fewer than 200 calories a plate, you can have an encore next Sunday without having to loosen your pantalons!


2 slices of Sara Lee or Weight Watchers 45 calorie a slice bread

1/2 cup Egg-Beaters or Liquid Egg Whites

1 T. Vanilla Almond Milk

1 t. vanilla

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. Brown Sugar Splenda

1/2 t. salt

2 T. Mrs. Butterworth’s Sugar Free Syrup

Fresh fruit for topping

Mix egg product, almond milk, vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar Splenda and salt into a bowl and soak bread slices.

Heat a non-stick pan sprayed with butter flavored cooking spray over medium heat. Add soaked bread. After a few minutes and when underside is browned, flip and reduce heat to medium. It is done when the bread is no longer spongy to the touch.

Top with sugar free syrup and fruit like strawberries or blueberries or 1/2 of a banana.


Even though the calorie count is higher, if you have fresh homemade raisin bread you’ve gotten from the farmers market, make very thin slices and use it to make the French Toast and top with fresh blueberries. (As you might remember from The Skinny Strategy, if you do have that high calorie bread, you must keep it–already sliced– in the freezer so that you only use it sparingly!)
