My kids are rebels. They rebel against pretty much anything that contains the words "whole wheat" or "whole grain". Whole wheat bread, whole grain pasta, even brown rice. They want nothing to do with the stuff. This Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast is one way I'm able to get them to eat whole wheat bread. And not just eat it, but actually like it!
Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast is my favorite french toast in the world. The entire world! I love how the cinnamon and vanilla make it taste (or at least tricks me into thinking it tastes) a little sweet. I like to eat mine sprinkled with a little (plus maybe a little more) powdered sugar and sliced strawberries.
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 slices bread (I used whole wheat)
Preheat a griddle to 350. In a small bowl combine eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Pour into a flat bottomed dish or plate. Dip bread into the egg mixture, flipping to coat both sides, and place on the hot griddle (mine is non-stick and I don't grease it. If yours isn't non-stick, grease away. Even if it is non-stick and you like to grease it, feel free). Cook until the bottom is lightly browned, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook on the other side until browned.
