  • 6 1- inch slices of whole grain French bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar free & fat free hazelnut ID creamer
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 4-5 fresh strawberries sliced
  • Hazelnut cocoa spread for drizzle


  • Preheat a large cooking pan over medium heat and add a little vegetable oil.
  • Slice French bread slices in the middle but not all the way through.
  • Add 3-4 slices of strawberries in the middle of bread slices.
  • In a shallow, wide bowl, whisk together eggs, creamer, vanilla extract, nutmeg and sugar until smooth.
  • Dip bread in egg mixture, holding it in to let it soak up some mixture. Press on the bread lightly to help it soak the egg mixture.
  • Cook French Toast for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • Add some hazelnut cocoa spread to a piping bag and cut off the tip, leaving only a small opening. (You can warm up the spread in a microwave first for about 10 seconds on half the power.) Drizzle it over cooked French Toast.
