Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

Toddlers just love this traditional French toast snack because they can “dunk” them in  maple syrup. You can also use fruit preserves instead if you like. For best results, purchase a whole, unsliced loaf of wholewheat bread and cut thick slices.

Ingredients :

4 servings

8 slices thick-cut whole-wheat bread

4 large eggs

1 cup whole milk

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

¼ cup pure maple syrup (optional)

  1. Cut the bread slices lengthwise into 4 equal pieces.
  1. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  1. Heat the butter in a skillet on medium to medium-low.
  1. One at a time, dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, coating well. (Only dip as many pieces of bread into the mixture as you are cooking at one time.)
  1. Lay the soaked bread pieces in the skillet. Cook on one side for about 2 minutes, until browned; turn over and cook the other side until browned.
  1. Divide the syrup evenly in small dipping cups. Serve with the French toast sticks.
  1. EAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
