Baked French Toast Strips with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Ingredients
 
Nonstick cooking spray
1/4
cup ground flaxseeds
2
tablespoons sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1/2
cup fat-free milk
1
tablespoon sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
8
ounces hearty whole wheat bread
3/4
cup apricot spreadable fruit
1/4
cup water
3
tablespoons maple-flavor syrup

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. In a shallow dish combine ground flaxseeds, 2 tablespoons sugar, and cinnamon; set aside. In a medium bowl combine eggs, egg whites, milk, 1 tablespoon sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Cut bread into twelve 1-inch-thick strips. Dip bread strips briefly in egg mixture, then roll in flaxseed mixture to coat. Place strips 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown and crisp.
  3. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan combine spreadable fruit, the water, and syrup. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve toast strips with sauce.

To Make Ahead:

Prepare as directed through Step 2, except cool toast strips completely. Place in an airtight container; cover. Freeze for up to 1 month. To serve, preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place frozen toast strips on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake about 6 minutes or until heated through, turning once. Or place four frozen toast strips on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) about 30 seconds or until heated through. Prepare sauce as directed; serve with toast strips.
