    Loved this recipe! I did use a Tbsp of Sugar Free Maple Syrup per serving and it was delicious. To save time on a busy morning and to not waste a loaf of French Bread, I've made all the slices of French Toast and tossed them in the freezer. Just have to make the apple topping and reheat the French Toast - quick yummy breakfast!
