Whole Wheat French Toast

A Healthy Bite for the Holidays

This wholesome French Toast breakfast is easy to assemble and will be quickly gobbled up. Simply use your favorite 100% whole wheat bread and add the right amount of cinnamon to create a healthier alternative to this American classic. My kids love the nutty and sweet flavors all toasted together.
