This low-fat blueberry French toast was our breakfast, and it was delicious.

I made one third of the recipe, and prepared it last night before I went to bed. In order to make it even healthier, I used 1 egg and 2 egg whites and homemade whole grain bread with pumpkin seeds. The blueberry-cream cheese layer was creamy, oozy and packed with blueberries, it was heavenly tasty when served with juicy blueberry sauce.

I baked the French toast at 400 degrees F at the last 5 to 10 minutes to ensure a well browned top with a bit crispy texture.

Had this super tasty breakfast with a cup of orange juice, I can eat this type of breakfast everyday. YUM!
