Whole Wheat French Toast (+Sugar free version)

French toast brings back childhood memories. I was the fatty who had a lunch box full of French toast in kindergarten/montessori. Mum used to fry some delicious toasts early morning, and she made a big batch. I loved the crispy exterior and mushy interior of the toast blending together in my mouth. No wonder lunchtime at school was my favorite part of the day. Adult life is about watching the waistline and counting the carbs, and so I give you a whole wheat, low sugar/sugar free version of French toast. 


  • 1 1/4 cup milk [skimmed for non-fat]
  • 4 eggs [use 8 egg whites for non fat]
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence [optional]
  • Sugar, 2 teaspoon [5-6 teaspoons Splenda granular]
  • Pam original butter spray [the one used for waffles]
  • Vegetable [canola] oil
  • Whole wheat toasts, 10 [trim the edges and cut into triangles]

  • Grilling pan [if you want those cool markings like the ones in the photo]
  • Frying pan [if you don't have a griddle]
  • Tongs [for easy dipping of toasts and avoiding hands from getting messy]
  • Forks
  • Whisk

  1. Pour milk in a bowl and add eggs to it.
  2. Add vanilla essence and sugar/Splenda.
  3. Whisk the milk and eggs mixture until smooth.
  4. Heat the griddle on medium heat, and add a tablespoon of oil and a spray of Pam.
  5. Dip toast triangles into the mixture and batter both sides. 
  6. Let excess liquid drip out and place on griddle to fry. 
  7. Allow about a minute for one side to fry and griddle markings to appear on the toast before flipping with a fork to fry the other side.

  • With jam
  • With maple syrup
  • Whatever you like!
