Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons sucralose-based sugar substitute
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen peeled and sliced peaches, thawed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons no-sugar-added peach fruit spread
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
  • 3 tablespoons sucralose-based sugar substitute
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices multigrain bread
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds

Directions

1. For Peach Compote, stir 3 tablespoons sugar substitute into 1/3 cup water in medium saucepan until dissolved. Add peaches; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, 5 minutes or until peaches soften.

2. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons water with fruit spread in small bowl; stir into peach mixture in saucepan. Cook 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in cinnamon. Cover; keep warm.

3. For Almond French Toast, combine milk and 3 tablespoons sugar substitute in large shallow dish; whisk until sugar substitute dissolves completely. Whisk in eggs, egg whites, almond extract and salt. Place bread in dish and let stand, turning once, about 3 minutes or until egg mixture is absorbed. Sprinkle both sides of bread slices evenly with almonds, pressing to adhere.

4. Spray griddle or large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Place bread slices on griddle; cook, turning once, 2 to 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Serve toast topped with Peach Compote.
