Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 3-quart casserole dish or pie plate with coconut oil.
Butter both sides of the bread and "toast" both sides in the oven as it's preheating.
Combine maple syrup, eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix well.
Break up (or cut) the toasted bread and layer it in the casserole dish. Add the fruit (apples or raisins).
Pour egg mixture over bread and stir.
Bake for 40 minutes.
