Pumpkin Stuffed French Toast
The tablespoon of reduced-fat cream cheese stays within THM:E fat guidelines and adds a nice bit of creaminess to this stuffed French toast. You'd be surprised how far a tablespoon goes! | THM:E, low fat, sugar free
Serves: 1
  • 2 slices sprouted bread*
  • -
  • 1 T. reduced-fat cream cheese
  • -
  • 2 T. plain canned pumpkin puree
  • ¾ tsp. THM Super Sweet Blend
  • ¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash salt
  • -
  • 2 T. egg whites
  • 2 T. unsweetened almond milk
  • Dash vanilla extract
  • -
  • Cooking spray
  • Additional pumpkin pie spice
  • Sugar-free maple syrup and/or sugar-free chocolate syrup
  1. Spread the cream cheese on one slice of bread.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, Super Sweet Blend, pumpkin pie spice, and salt together and spread over the cream cheese. Top with the other slice of bread to make a sandwich.
  3. Whisk the egg whites, almond milk, and vanilla in a bowl.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. When it is hot, dip the sandwich in the egg mixture for a few seconds on each side. Spray the pan with a light coating of cooking spray and fry the French toast for a few minutes on each side until toasted. (I cover it with a lid while frying to make sure it heats all the way through.) Sprinkle a little extra pumpkin pie spice on the stuffed French toast and serve with sugar-free maple syrup and/or sugar-free chocolate syrup.
*I used Aldi’s Simply Nature Sprouted 7 Grain Bread, but you can use your favorite THM:E bread! I prefer thin slices for stuffed French toast.
I recommend adding a little protein with this stuffed French toast to hold you over until your next meal. 2 slices of the sprouted bread I was using contains 6g protein, but adding a side of low-fat Greek yogurt or a scoop of collagen to your coffee or tea would be ideal.
Store-bought Splenda-sweetened syrup can be used on occasion, or you can make your own maple-flavored syrup. Check out pg. 416 of Necessary Food for my favorite homemade recipe.
Hershey's sugar-free syrup is sweetened mostly with erythritol!
