Banana Bread French Toast

Here's the Dish

What a better way to start off the New Year than with a healthy and delicious breakfast!?! Celebrate with a warm and comforting breakfast of banana bread combined with french toast…Banana Bread French Toast!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 15-20 Minutes.

1

Whisk together Egg Beaters, milk, banana extract, and spices in a shallow bowl, and set aside. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat.

2

Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture just before you place it in the skillet, turning to evenly coat both sides of each slice. Place bread into the skillet; cooking about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown on both sides. Repeat with remaining bread slices. Serve with syrup, bananas, and walnuts if desired.

Ingredients

8 slices Bread of choice (I used a whole grain/high fiber bread)
1 tspBanana extract
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Pumpkin pie spice (or nutmeg)
1/4 cup Skim milk (or milk substitute of choice)
1/2 cup Egg beaters
OptionalToppings: 1/4 cup low sugar (or sugar free), maple syrup 1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped, 1/2 banana for topping

1 Found next to vanilla extract OR you could use vanilla extract if you want to make plain cinnamon french toast

This looks sooo delicious! I’m totally making it this weekend for a nice, post-holiday relaxation break (because my relaxation over the holidays was so not enough).

My boyfriend loves French Toast & he was staying with my family over Christmas Break, so I made this on our anniversary. It was delicious!! We forgot to buy extract at the store, so we mashed up banana instead & it was still to die for! Great recipe and we will DEFINITELY make it again!!

I think you’d have to watch what bread your using. My whole wheat bread is 2 ww points for 1 slice or 5 pts for 2 slices. I’m definitely going to make this but I’ll call it 5 points and be very happy :)
