Yummy French Toast

I found this recipe first in one of Hungry Girl's cookbooks but adapted it a bit to our tastes. I also always use a 9-Grain Whole Wheat bread that is a bit higher in calories than the original recipe called for so I adjusted the recipe to take that into consideration.
- 1/2c. Eggbeaters
-1/2t. cinnamon
-1/4t. vanilla
-3 slices whole wheat bread
-1 1/2t. powdered sugar

Mix eggbeaters, cinnamon, and vanilla together in a bowl. Dredge the bread through the egg mixture on both sides. Then place each slice into a skillet (on medium heat) that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook on each side until golden brown or cooked through. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve. This recipe serves 2 people, 1 1/2 slices of french toast.
