Total Time:
10 mins


  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk (such as Almond Breeze brand)

  • cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ cup dark chocolate-flavor almonds, finely chopped (1 1/2 ounces)

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 4 slices light whole wheat bread (such as Village Hearth or Sara Lee brand)

  • 2 tablespoon sugar-free chocolate-flavor syrup

  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries


  1. In a shallow dish beat together almond milk, eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside 1/2 tablespoon of the chopped almonds for garnish. Place the remaining chopped almonds in another shallow dish.

  2. Coat a griddle* with cooking spray. Heat griddle over medium heat. Meanwhile, dip each bread slice into the egg mixture, turning to coat both sides (let bread soak in egg mixture about 10 seconds per side). Dip soaked bread in the almonds, turning to coat both sides.

  3. Cook almond-coated bread slices on hot griddle 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once halfway through cooking time. Cut slices in half diagonally. Arrange on two serving plates.

  4. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the bread slices; top with raspberries. Sprinkle with the reserved chopped almonds.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If you do not have a griddle, coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray; continue as directed, except cook half of the bread slices at a time.
