1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 whole grain bakery bread slices
1 tablespoon butter

How to Make It
Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dip bread slices in egg mixture, coating both sides.
Melt butter on a griddle or in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place bread slices on hot griddle, and pour remaining egg mixture over bread slices. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Drizzle with maple syrup, and top with fruit.

Absolutely delicious. The splash of orange juice gives the toast a lighter but flavorful taste. Accompanied by the fruit (you can really use any fruit you want), this makes for a great meal that we make over and over again.
