2 slices wholegrain bread
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp milk or milk alternative
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1C frozen raspberries
2 tsp honey, rice malt syrup or sweetener of your choice
1. Prepare the raspberry coulis by placing the raspberries, 1 tbsp water and honey/sweetener in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and cooking for approximately 10 minutes or until mixture thickens and forms a sauce-like consistency.
2. Meanwhile combine egg, milk and salt and soak each slice of bread in mixture. Make sure you turn the bread over so it soaks through with the egg mixture.

4. Remove toast from pan and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with raspberry coulis. Serve immediately.
