1/3 cup Splenda® Granular
1 cup egg substitute (or 4 large eggs)
3/4 teaspoon maple flavor
8 slices cinnamon raisin bread
2 cups peeled apples, thinly sliced
1/4 cup low fat cream cheese
1 tablespoon Splenda® Granular
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 - Blend together, in a medium size mixing bowl, 1/3 cup Splenda® Granular, egg substitute, milk, and maple flavor.
