Banana-Nut French Toast

Who doesn't love French toast? But fat-and-calorie-wise, it's like eating a Big Mac. My version tastes like a splurge, but it's only 230 calories—a whopping 407 calories less than the traditional version.


  • Egg whites
  • Banana extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (with a dash of cinnamon for a little extra flavor)
  • Bread
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • Blueberries
  • Walnuts

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together egg whites, banana extract, and 1 teaspoon maple syrup (with a dash of cinnamon for a little extra flavor); dip both sides of bread into egg mixture. Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and cook bread over medium heat until both sides are brown. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons maple syrup; sprinkle blueberries and walnuts on top.
