PointsPlus® value 7*
Once we perfected this French toast recipe at the HG HQ, the verdict was clear: It obliterates a craving for IHOP's version. Which is DEFINITELY a good thing, since that was our exact goal. Dig in...
Half of a sugar-free vanilla pudding snack with 60 calories or less (like the kind by Jell-O)
2 tbsp. sugar-free pancake syrup
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
2 slices light bread
2 tbsp. fat-free cream cheese
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix pudding, syrup, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate.
In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom. Meanwhile, coat bread on all sides with egg mixture. Cook bread until golden brown, 1 - 2 minutes per side.
Plate bread, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Spread one slice with half of the pudding mixture, and top with the other bread slice. Spread the top slice with remaining pudding mixture.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, thoroughly mix cream cheese, sweetener, and remaining 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract. Microwave for 15 seconds, or until warm. Drizzle cream cheese mixture over French toast. Squirt with Reddi-wip, and dig in!
