I use French vanilla coffee creamer instead of the vanilla and sugar. My kids and husband LOVE this breakfast!

This is essentially my personal French Toast recipe. If you use light brown sugar in place of granulated sugar, it creates a different type of sweetness - less artificial and more like a warm cookie that Mom gives you. Our family also uses melted peanut butter, and sometimes Nutella, as a topping with our maple syrup and bananas.
