This light version of classic French toast is perfect for quick meals or Sunday brunches. My kids love it, and so do I! —Barbara Arnold, Spokane, Washington.


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup frosted cornflakes, crushed
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • Maple syrup


  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla and salt until blended. In another shallow bowl, toss cornflakes with oats and almonds.
  2. Heat a griddle coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Dip both sides of bread in egg mixture, then in cereal mixture, patting to help coating adhere. Place on griddle; toast 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with syrup.
