French Toast with Honey Maple Syrup

Growing up, one of my favorite things was to wake up on a Saturday morning, and smell my Mom cooking a big breakfast. Now that I'm married, my wife and I cook breakfast on the weekend every chance we get.

I wanted to cook my wife a delicious, hearty breakfast without all the calories, so I give you French Toast with homemade Honey Maple Syrup. This syrup cuts the calories in half, but never cuts the flavor.

To make the syrup, you bring 1/8 cup of pure maple syrup, 1 cup of pure raw honey, and 1 cup of water to a boil for about 5-10 minutes until you reach the desired thickness. Spray your measuring cup with non-stick spray, and the honey and maple syrup will come out perfect every time!

This entire recipe is around 270 calories per serving. You can't beat it! I hope you like it!
