French toast: this screams nostalgia if you ask me. When I was at my grandma’s place, I always got this for breakfast with lots of sugar, apples and a glass of milk. I never forgot how much I enjoyed eating this.. And hello?! Why wasn’t a healthy alternative available on the Foodie-ness blog until now? Not only is this an easy recipe, I’m pretty sure you already have all the ingredients ready in your kitchen.

“Grandma’s French Toast: it never gets old”

This recipe for healthy and low-kcal French toast can also be made gluten-free. For this recipe I used a whole wheat bread, soy milk, eggs and cinnamon. As a topping I used fresh fruits and some quark. But feel free to vary with toppings to taste 🙂 Can you already imagine the smell of your kitchen on an easy Sunday morning?
