  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 large eggs plus 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 0.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 8 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 0.25 cup apple butter

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a large shallow dish, whisk together milk, eggs and egg whites, granulated sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.
  2. Place 4 bread slices in milk mixture and let soak 1 minute per side. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium.
