My kids spent the latter part of the last week of school at home sick. The one really fun week completely shot! I wanted to make my daughter a little cinnamon toast this evening, hoping she could keep something down and I knew the smell of it would make me want some too, so I made a more G.I. friendly version. I would call this version yellow light. If you want to make it greener, use the Sugar Twin brown sugar subsititute instead of the Splenda brown sugar half&half and omit the honey alltogether. It will still be tasty but it won’t melt the same way.
For two servings:
Four pieces of whole grain bread
Light butter spread (half butter, half canola oil)
Splenda Brown Sugar Mix (50/50)
a dab of honey (optional)
Cinnamon or a cinnamon spice mix.
Butter both sides of each piece of bread with the lite spreadable butter. Sandwich about a tbs of the brown sugar mix, a half tsp of honey, and a healthy sprinkling of cinnamon between two pieces of bread. Sprinkle the outsides with a bit more cinnamon and put both cinnamon toast sandwiches in a sandwich maker until toasted. You could also use a George foreman grill, a panini maker, or a plain ole skillet. You may want to spray all of the above with a bit of non-stick cooking spray for some added clean-up protection.
I think it’s worth using a little “real” sugar in the brown sugar mix and the dab of honey because it melts and carmelizes better but it isn’t necessary!!
