Sweet & crunchy french toast sticks

February 21, 2021

Want to know the way to my heart… cereal haha.. I have always loved cereal, the sugary ones, and even the healthier ones many days I’ll just have a big bowl of cereal for dinner. Frosted flakes have always been a favorite of mine and these sweet & crunchy french toast sticks that are rolled in frosted flakes are inspired by a contest WW Canada was hosting. They were asking their members to get creative with the WW bread products and come up with something delicious and good on points, I was honored to be asked to help judge it and it was a lot of fun going through the entries.  I knew I wanted to come up with my own fun way to use the bread and let me tell you these french toast sticks are DELICIOUS! Just a few simple ingredients needed, the recipe makes 4 servings of 6 sticks but you could always just make enough for one easy enough. Top with berries and your favorite low point syrup. 6 sticks on blue & purple are 6SP and 8SP on green.

Ingredients
  • 8 slices Weight watchers white bread *or any low calorie bread
  • 2 cups frosted flakes cereal
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F lightly spray a baking sheet with some non stick spray *or use parchment paper
  2. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla (use a bowl big enough to dip bread pieces in)
  3. In a zip lock bag mix the frosted flakes and cinnamon together, use a rolling pin to crush the cereal in the bag into a fine crumb.
  4. Spread the crumb mixture on a flat plate
  5. Cut each slice of bread into 3 strips.
  6. Dip the bread pieces into the egg mixture, don't over dip, or the bread will become too soggy
  7. Press the bread pieces into the cereal crumb covering all side and lay onto the baking sheet
  8. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes or until they are crispy.
  9. Makes 4 servings, 6 pieces each serving. You could easily just make enough for one by lowering the ingredients
  10. *Optional to top with fresh berries and syrup, use a sugar free syrup to keep points low.
  11. *Note- I think these will also turn out well in the air fryer
