Large skillet

Serves 4
6 slices Whole Wheat Bread
2 Eggs Whole
2 Egg Whites
1/3 cup Milk or non-dairy milk alternative
1 tablespoon Orange Juice 100%
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
of Nonstick Cooking Spray
2 cups Berries fresh or frozen thawed
1 tablespoon Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon for syrup


1.Cut bread into half and then each half into half again to form 4 long sticks for a total of 24 pieces.
2.In a shallow bowl, beat eggs, egg whites, milk, orange juice, vanilla, and cinnamon together, using a fork or whisk.
3.Carefully add the bread sticks to egg and milk mixture to soak, turn to coat all sides. Then carefully remove egg-soaked bread pieces, gently shaking off extra liquid.
4.Lightly spray a skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Lay soaked bread pieces in a single layer on the skillet. Cook until brown about 2 minutes. Flip sticks over with a spatula.
5.Repeat Step 4 until all French Toast Sticks have been cooked.
6.While French Toast Sticks are cooking, place berries, syrup, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat. Stir occasionally until berries are mostly broken down, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover until ready to use.
7.Serve Berry Syrup over French Toast Sticks.

Chef's Tips

  • For a smoother syrup, carefully pour cooled mixture into a blender container and blend until smoother, about 10 seconds.
