2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 (3/4-inch) slices whole-grain country bread (about 1 1/2 ounces per slice)
Cooking spray
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
8 teaspoons maple syrup


1. Preheat oven to 200°.

2. Place a large shallow baking dish in oven to warm.

3. Combine first 7 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. (You should have about 2 cups batter.) Place 2 slices of bread in batter; soak 1-2 minutes.

4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Remove bread slices from the batter; drain slightly. Place bread in skillet; cook until golden (2-3 minutes on each side), flipping once. Transfer toast to warm baking dish in oven. Repeat steps with the remaining bread slices.

5. Place 2 slices of French toast on 4 plates. Sprinkle each plate with 1/2 teaspoon powdered sugar; top with 1/4 cup each of blueberries and raspberries. Drizzle each plate with 2 teaspoons maple syrup before serving.
