Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast

Makes 6 slices

This cholesterol-free French toast is a delicious way to start the day and adds beneficial soy and whole wheat to your diet.

1 cup fortified plain or vanilla soy- or rice milk
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
6 slices cinnamon-raisin bread
vegetable oil spray

Combine non-dairy milk, flour, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon in a blender. Blend until smooth, then pour into a flat dish.

Soak bread slices in batter until soft but not soggy. The amount of time this takes will vary depending on the bread used.

Cook in a vegetable oil sprayed non-stick skillet until first side is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Turn carefully with a spatula and cook second side until brown, about 3 minutes.
