Low carb French Toast

French toast is a delicious meal to have in the morning.  It can be a versatile decadent food that can also be suitable for a dessert that can be had any time of day.  Ordinarily, French toast would be off of the low carb menu due to the sugars/ carbs in the types of bread being used, luckily there are a number of great low carb breads on the market today.
This recipe uses low carb bread, healthy Almond milk, and a cooking spray that is tasty and has zero fat,calories,carbs,etc.  Add splenda for extra sweetness and you have a tasty breakfast that is healthier for sure!

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 cup Silk Pure Almond Original Almond Milk (what I used for this)
3 tbs-Splenda-granulated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
Smart Balance Buttery Burst Cooking Spray with Organic Soy
2-6 Slices of-NATURE'S OWN low carb whole grain bread (called Double Fiber on label, the one you want will also say on the nutritional information that it has 10g carbs less the 5g of fiber = 5 net carbs / per slice)
In a small bowl whisk together eggs, Silk Pure Almond Milk, vanilla, almond extract, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Pour mixture into a glass pie dish or square glass baking dish for best convenience. Gently submerge bread in egg mixture, one or two slices at a time and place on a griddle that has been sprayed with butter flavored cooking spray- over medium heat. Cook each side until golden brown and serve sprinkled with artificial granulated sweetener such as Splenda. Top with fresh blueberries, strawberries or toasted almonds.
