Servings: Makes 12 muffins

GREEN/BLUE/PURPLE: 1 Smartpoint for 1 muffin or 3 smartpoints for 2 muffins

 

What ingredients do I need for these Skinny French Toast Muffins?

  • Low point bread, 8 Western Bagel pumpkin or wheat bagelettes 
  • Unsweetened almond, coconut, or skim milk
  • Unsweetened applesauce or 100% pumpkin puree: You may use 1/4 cup of any unsweetened fruit, if desired. I love making these with 1/4 cup of with my Zero Point Pumpkin Butter or my Zero Point Apple Pie Cinnamon Filling
  • Zero point granulated white or brown sugar sweetener- I use Lakanto Golden or Classic Monkfruit Sweetener 
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Regular sugar: for the cinnamon sugar topping. I recommend using real sugar vs. a sugar sweetener for the cinnamon topping. It’s only 1 Tbsp for all 12 muffins and it gives the tops of the muffins a nice caramelized flavor. 

 

What kind of bread or bagels do I use?

I like Sara Lee’s 45 calories bread, Schmidt’s 467 bread, or Nature’s Own sugar free bread. These are great options and are only 1 point per slice. 

I love using Western Bagelettes as an alternative to bread slices for this recipe.  The bagelettes are thicker than thin sliced bread so they hold up to the liquid of the eggs and milk.

 The Western Bagels come in regular size bagels or bagelettes- these bagels are low in points and calories and high in fiber and protein.

You can find these bagelettes online HERE or they have a few retail stores in California.  

They sell a variety of flavors that are low in points. The Alternative and Perfect 10 bagels are WW friendly. I usually buy 6 packages and freeze them for up to 6 months.
