Let’s dive in! How to make a healthy French toast?
This recipe is GOLD. So easy to put together.
I rarely buy Cinnamon bread, but a couple of weeks ago, I went to buy groceries before having lunch and I’m sure you know how that story ends. It’s true that you can’t go grocery shopping if you are hungry! I wanted to buy anything and everything and since I love anything with cinnamon I came home with an item I don’t usually buy; Thomas swirl bread… and a box of snickerdoodle cookies if I’m being completely honest. Ok, and ice cream too.
Buy hey, it worked out because now I’ll get to make this healthy French toast recipe for many days to come. And the craziest part was that coming up with this recipe, was a total splurge of the moment thing. I initially had the Thomas cinnamon bread with cream cheese and on the weekend I woke up craving my traditional healthy French toast recipe and decided to use this bread instead at the very last minute.
The only bad thing about buying Cinnamon twist bread…
The down side is that my husband does not like French toasts at all! (I still love him, but come on, that’s crazy!) So, I pretty much have to eat this whole thing by myself. For me, that’s not great because I do try to eat very clean and healthy and only eat things like this as a treat or on the weekends… but…
The good things is, you can freeze it and it stays fresh! Keep that in mind and still get yourself your cinnamon bread, even if you are the only one who eats it.
Ingredients – Healthy French Toast recipe
- 2 slices of cinnamon bread (I used Thomas Swirl things because each slice only has 80 calories)
- 1 egg
- 2 TBS egg whites (for extra protein)
- 1 TBS milk (it can be almond milk too. You can’t feel the taste)
- 1 tsp cinnamon (optional, only for serious cinnamon lovers!)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 packet of Stevia, Truvia or Splenda (optional because the bread is already sweet)
*In the meantime, heat up a non-stick pan on medium-high heat.
Preparation – Healthy French Toast recipe
- Whisk all ingredients together
- Dip the bread and let it absorb the mix for 15-20 seconds or so on each side
- Spray your non-stick pan with coconut oil and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side
And that’s it! Serve and eat with sugar free maple syrup and maybe a little bit of butter. Your choice ;)
Other ways to eat Thomas Cinnamon Swirl Bread
If you are not a french toast person (why?), you can try toasting it and top it with whipped cream cheese and home made jam. I love this as an afternoon snack when I’m going crazy craving something sweet.
Looks fancy, but it’s the easiest thing ever!
Here’s how to make it:
You can use any fruit of your preference. For these toasts I made a mango one and a mixed berry one. All you have to do is to chop the fruit in small pieces, add a little bit of water (I used 1 tsp) and stevia to taste (1 tsp is good for me). Microwave it for one minute, stir it and put it back in for another 45 seconds. It’s so easy and it is low calorie too.
Other fruits you can use: apples, pears, peaches, blueberries, strawberries.
PS: I like to use whipped cream cheese instead of the regular one, because it has more volume and less calories (there’s a tip for you. Seriously, read the tag next time you go to the store).
Each of these toasts has only 150 calories. That’s it!!
Pro tip: let the toast cool down before adding the cream cheese. I don’t know why, but it tastes different when it melts and the whipped version melts a lot faster than the regular version.

Did you know?
Thomas Swirl bread is picky about their ingredients and their products are always the freshest. I had no idea they distribute their breads in-store 5X a week! That’s why it’s always so good and hard to resist. I had no idea.

But I promise all the things I share are delicious, very easy and mostly on the low calorie side.
