1/4 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid eggs
1/4 tsp vanilla extract, divided
1/4 tsp cinnamon. divided
1/3 cup light or low-fat ricotta cheese
1 packet stevia
2 tsp light buttery spread
2 slices light bread
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries, thawed and drained
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

In a wide bowl, combine egg whites/substitute, 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Whisk thoroughly.

 

In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, half of the sweetener packet, remaining 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix well.

 

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter, and let it coat the bottom.

 

Thoroughly soak bread in egg mixture, until all the mixture has been absorbed. Cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

 

Spread ricotta mixture onto one slice of French toast. Top with the other piece of French toast, and lightly press to seal. Top with strawberries.

 

Place blueberries in a medium microwave-safe bowl sprayed with nonstick spray. Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons water. Sprinkle with cornstarch, and stir to coat.

 

Microwave for 1 minute, or until hot and thickened.

 

Stir in remaining half of the sweetener packet, and spoon over French toast.
