Spiced French Toast with Warm Apple Topping

Updated on November 23, 2014

I love French Toast but I always considered it to be a weekend or holiday meal till I tried this simplified version that makes an easy and healthy weekday breakfast. I have altered the basic French Toast recipe to include some spices and a yummy apple topping instead of syrup.

Since my husband and I have retired breakfast is our time of day to sit together and have a good meal, read the newspaper and start our day. Breakfast is one of our favorite times of the day, but if we don't watch out it can also be a time to add more calories than we really need. I try to vary our menu and alter recipes to include healthy versions.

In this recipe I use a lower calorie bread, a liquid egg product and skim milk. I then add flavor with some spices and when it is finished top it off with some warm chunky applesauce.

Some days I use blueberries instead of the applesauce. Just heat a half cup of blueberries in the microwave for about 1 minute and you have a wonderful sauce for your French toast.


Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: 2


  • 4 slices of bread
  • 1/2 cup egg product or 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • sprinkle nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup chunky applesauce


  1. Spray your frying pan and put on medium heat
  2. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla and spices in a bowl
  3. Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture , turning once
  4. Add the pieces of bread to the frying pan
  5. Cook until lightly brown and turn
  6. Brown second side and put on serving plate
  7. Warm chunky applesauce in the microwave for about 1 minute
  8. Top French Toast with warm applesauce

      I've already had my breakfast but I think I'll make your french toast for lunch. Sounds so good!

      Sometimes I'll sprinkle my french toast with icing sugar. The boys used to love that version when they were little. My husband likes his with jam rather than maple syrup. But I know he'll love it with apple sauce.

      I use my cinnamon swirl bread for french toast on weekends.. It adds that extra bit of richness. I'll have to try it with apples this weekend.

      I love French Toast.. but mine tends to be a calorie bomb. During the holidays I use Brioche or Panatone for added richness
