Double Cinnamon French Toast

I was dreaming all night about that fantastic Cinnamon Swirl bread we bought last night.  I think The Husband was too because when I got back from my meeting he asked if I had French Toast without him – he was smelling the bread all morning – funny!

I started off my day by going to my Weight Watcher meeting first thing this morning and I am really glad I did.  The normal leader that I listen to on Saturday’s was teaching and it made me realize that I miss her.  I think I have found my home again on Saturday’s and plan on switching back to that day.  I never realized how much limbo it can make you feel like you are in by not having a set leader that you love listening to. 

I started out with that Cinnamon Swirl Bread I bought at The Grateful Bread yesterday.  LOVE all the cinnamony swirliness of it – YUM!


I mixed up a “French Toast” mixture of:

2 eggs

3 egg whites

2 Tbsp Fat Free Milk

Splash of Vanilla

Dashes of Cinnamon and Sea Salt

I then dipped each slice in the mix and cooked with nonstick spray until browned on each side.

I made up 6 slices, 2 slices per serving is 5 Weight Watcher Points.

I had TWO slices topped with 1 tsp whipped butter and 1/2 Tbsp Pure Maple syrup for a total of 7.5 points – not too bad for a decadent Sunday Brunch.


I made my slices thin and the Husbands plus his mom Thick slices like below.


I think the BEST part was coming across the cinnamon swirl parts – SO GOOD!


Another goal I have this week is to center each meal around fruit and/or vegetables.  I added a 1 cup serving on cantaloupe and watermelon to balance out my breakfast.


Today I have a ton of things to check off my to-do list including making a few new recipes so I am off to get started.

Have a great Sunday all ~ see you all this afternoon!

  4. Mmmmm that is decadent and a points steal... yummy!

    I like your meal centering idea... I'm going to work on that since my meals tend to center on whole grains since I love them soooo much :)

  5. Yum! That french toast looks delicious! Now I'm craving cinnamon and syrup :)

  6. I've only had packaged cinnamon swirl bread, so yours looks really decadent! I'm trying to add more produce into my diet too... Yesterday was easy because we got fresh peaches. :D I had, like, 4 or 5.

  7. what a delicious breakfast - chomp.

  8. that bread is PERF. for french toast making -- way to go for using it so wisely :)

  9. I am convinced that using Cin bread for french toast is the only way to make it now. I don't think I could ever go back to plain bread.

    Your breakfast looks fit for a queen. So marvelous and I'm sure you enjoyed every single bite. :)

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend sweetheart!

  10. That bread looks so good! Is that cinnamon dripping out of it? Delish!

  11. Janetha ~ I totally agree with everything you said!
