5-7 Texas Toast or sandwich bread (Cut into strips)
2 cups (pulsed a few times in a food processor) Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For Dipping Sauce:
3 tbsp coffee creamer
1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar (sifted)
1 tbsp butter (melted and cooled)
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with nonstick foil.
Slice the bread into strips.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and milk together. Set aside.
Melt a tablespoon of butter in a sauce pan/skillet over medium-low heat.
Place a slice of the bread half way in the egg mixture. Hold it there about 30 seconds then flip the bread and repeat on the other side.
Dredge the strip of bread in the cinnamon toast crunch crumbs. (You may need to gently press them into the bread.) Set aside and repeat with remaining strips of bread.
Place the coated strips of bread in the skillet (be careful not to overcrowd the pan). Brown each side (about 3-4 minutes) then place on baking sheet. Repeat with remain strips of bread.
Bake the partially cooked french toast sticks for 10-12 min or until they are cooked through.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by mixing the melted butter milk and confectioner’s sugar together. Stir in the salt, vanilla, and maple syrup. Then Place in a serving bowl.
Dust the french toast sticks with confectioner’s sugar if desired, and serve warm.
