French toast is typically made by dipping bread in an egg-milk mixture and then frying it until golden brown. This low-fat version uses cinnamon bread, but any type of bread would work.
To make this plant based, use an egg substitute.
In a small bowl, combine the egg whites, vanilla and nutmeg. Whisk to mix evenly. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides.
Place a nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles as it hits the pan, add the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
Place 2 slices of French toast on warmed individual plates. Add 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to each. Serve immediately.
