If I had to pick my absolute favorite breakfast food, it would undoubtedly be French Toast. For as long as I can remember I’ve been devouring this sweet breakfast food but since I’ve been counting up my calories I needed to find a healthier alternative.

The first step … ditch the bread.

Whole grain tortillas can take on the amazing nutmeg and cinnamon french toast flavor and cut the calories by quite a bit.

Second step … dress it up with fruit. Fried apples have been a long time favorite of mine and when they’re warm, gooey, tender and topped with sweet granola, they become the perfect filling for a french toast wrap.

Type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
Ingredients
Apple Filling
  • 3 small apples (like Fuji or Granny Smith)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 heaping teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup Cascadian Farm Maple Brown Sugar Granola Cereal
Wraps
  • 2 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided into 4 pieces.
Instructions
  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. Peel, core and slice apples into slices about ¼ inch thick.
  3. Melt butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, and spices.
  4. Add apples and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the granola during the last 2 minutes or so to soak of the excess sauce.
  5. Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Melt one piece of butter in the skillet coating the bottom.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk and spices.
  7. Dip both sides of the tortilla in the egg mixture and fry on both sides for about 20 seconds until slightly browned. Place a dab of butter in the skillet after each flip for both tortillas.
  8. Fill each tortilla with half of the apple filling, wrap the edges to the center and serve warm.

    This looks wonderful! *bookmarking*

  2. Wow, these look great! Love the idea of using a whole grain tortilla instead of bread.

  3. I have been making breakfast burritos in the morning, but with eggs and cheese. I might just have to try it your way!

  4. I would so love to try these! They sound delicious and my five year old son LOVES apples. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I’m not big on the granola, but the rest sounds delicious to me.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe, I’m going to try this… it’s similar to when I make crepes. =)

  6. Oh my heavens.. You’re a genius!! I would eat about a half a dozen of these easily :)

  7. oh looks so yummy. What time is breakfast?

  8. This is such a fantastic idea – I’ve never thought of using tortillas for breakfast before!! I love apples, cinnamon and nutmeg, such a comforting breakfast combination.

  9. Oh wow these are amazing. I’m so making these this weekend.!

    Do you know how many calories are in this meal? It sounds amazing and I am counting calories as well and it so hard to find your rave foods and still have enough calories to eat the rest of the day.

  11. Something to bring a smile into my family’s face in the morning….Love this recipe!

  12. Even though I have not tried this yet I believe it will be a keeper so I am definitely adding this to my collection of goodies. My gals have told me they are done with oatmeal for a while. Three years of oatmeal gets a little boring for sure. I am going to pin this one and try it for breakfast on Sunday. I’m sure it will be awesome!
