Healthier French Toast

First of all: Happy French Toast Day everybody! This is definitely the type of holiday I like celebrating 🙂 

Thought I’d hop onto the metaphorical bandwagon and make use of this opportunity to make a “healthier” French toast recipe 😊

I’m not one to brag, but the the truth is – I make the best French toast. It’s a fact. A while back, I used to au pair for 2 boys who were very fussy eaters, but for some reason the only thing they absolutely adored was my French toast. They loved it!

So now I’m pretty confident in that I make awesome French toast – and I’ll tell you my secret…

This is a love child between a flapjack and French toast. I’ve never been a fan of the soggy, eggy texture of regular French toast – it actually makes me cringe a bit. But I couldn’t miss out on the wonderful concept of it all so I created my very own creation and I promise you it is perfection!

If you want to be naughty – ignore my recommendations, but I would urge you all to try my “Healthier” French Toast recipe first –  because it is still absolutely delicious 😊

Here are my HEALTHY swops:

  1. Instead of using regular white bread – I used whole-wheat bread.
  2. Instead of using sugar – I used xylitol.
  3. Instead of syrup topping – I used fresh fruit and full cream plain yogurt with some cinnamon “sugar”(xylitol)
