Our cinnamon-flavoured French toast sticks come with a creamy yogurt sauce for dunking. Instead of dipping into syrup alone, we use a much smaller amount of maple and stir it into Greek yogurt. To make French toast sticks that hold up, you need to make sure to do two things: Lightly toast the bread first, until it’s a bit crusty, and dip it quickly in the milk-egg mixture (instead of soaking it).

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Plain fat free Greek yogurt

1 cup(s)

Maple syrup

2 tbsp(s)

Vanilla extract

1½ tsp(s), divided

2% reduced fat milk

1 cup(s)

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp(s)

Egg(s)

2 large egg(s), lightly beaten

Whole wheat bread

8 slice(s), lightly toasted

Powdered sugar (icing sugar)

2 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, maple syrup, and ½ tsp vanilla; set aside until ready to serve.
  2. In a pie plate or shallow bowl, whisk together the milk, cinnamon, eggs, and remaining 1 tsp vanilla. Place the milk-egg mixture near the stovetop. Cut each toast slice crosswise into 3 strips; place the toast strips near the stovetop.
  3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat the pan over medium heat. Quickly dip each toast strip in the milk-egg mixture, turning to coat both sides; immediately place in the skillet. Arrange about half of the pieces in the skillet so there’s room between the pieces. Cook until lightly browned and set, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining toast strips and milk-egg mixture. Sprinkle the French toast sticks with powdered sugar; serve with the yogurt sauce.
  4. Serving size: 6 French toast sticks and ¼ cup yogurt sauce
