Skinny and Sugar Free, Apples Pie Stuffed French Toast


If the sound of something sugar free means not very tasty, you’ll be happy here…This stuffed French toast is absolutely delicious!!! The only sugar comes from the natural sugar from the apples. I used a little sugar substitute for sweetness.  If you’d like to use a little sugar instead you easily can. I’ve included the skinny facts using a small amount of a sugar under Prep Tips, below. This dreamy breakfast is terrific on the weekends and it would work well for a quick weekday breakfast too.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes


Ingredients for Stuffed French Toast:

1 cup apples, peeled and diced

1 package sugar substitute such as Truvia (Stevia) Splenda or Equal

½ teaspoon cinnamon

2 whole wheat sandwich thins, I used Oroweat, see shopping tips

2 tablespoon fat-free cream cheese

1 egg white

1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light spread


Ingredients for Topping:

1 package sugar free substitute such as Truvia (Stevia), Splenda or Equal

¼ teaspoon cinnamon


Instructions

1. Place apples in a small bowl Sprinkle with 1 package sugar substitute and cinnamon. Cook for 1 minute until apples are soft.

2. Spread the bottom inside piece of each sandwich thin with 1 tablespoon cream cheese. Divide apples and spread over top of cream cheese. Top each with  remaining sandwich thin to create a sandwich.

3. Add egg white to a shallow bowl. Dip both sandwiches into the egg white, turn each over and dip the other sides. Be sure both sandwiches are dipped well.

4. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Melt 1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter and swirl around bottom of pan. Add both sandwiches to pan and cook  over medium-high heat, about 2½ minutes, until golden brown. Using a spatula, turn over and cook the undersides for about 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.

5. To make topping: In a small dish, mix together 1 package sugar substitute and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle top of each sandwich with topping. Serve with a fork and knife.

Makes 2 servings (each serving, 1 full sandwich)
