  2. Spray low fat cooking spray in each of two 3.5″ ramekins.
  3. In a small bowl, gently beat egg whites with whole egg, adding the Cinnamon and Cayanne.
  4. Cut the Panettone into 1″ cubes and place into the ramekins evenly.
  5. Add 1 tbsp chocolate chips to each ramekin and distribute evenly among the bread cubes.
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly over each of the ramekins, dividing roughly in half. Squeeze the bread cubes down so that they are saturated.
