Breakfast Mugs *YUMMY*

These are from Hungry Girl (a healthy reacipe guru), and they are SO easy, adaptable, and healthy!

Cinnamon French Toast Mug (I halved this!!)
  • 2 tsp Coffee-mate Sugar Free creamer + 1/4 cup water (could substitute Torani sugar free syrup if you don't have the creamer, or use sugar free hot cocoa mix)
  • 2 tbs fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs splenda
  • 1/2 cup egg beaters liquid egg substitute
  • 2 slices 35 calorie (or other light) wheat bread
  • 2 tbs cool whip FREE
  • 1 tbs sugar-free pancake syrup
  • Optional: fresh fruit or preserves

  1. Combine powdered creamer with 1/4 cup hot water in a bowl and stir to dissolve. Add cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sweetner and stir until mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Add egg substitute and stir. Set aside.
  2. Toast the bread and tear into cubes. Spray a large microwave-safe mug with nonstick cooking spray. Add bread cubes and top with the vanilla-egg mixture. If needed, stir gently to ensure that bread is thoroughly soaked.
  3. Microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, until just set. Allow to cool slightly.
  4. Top with cool whip and drizzle with syrup (& fruit if you desire). Enjoy!
