Peanut Butter Banana French Toast


Last Saturday, I woke up hungry! I understand that most people wake up with an empty stomach and tend to eat something within the first hour of waking, but on this morning, for whatever reason, I felt famished. I needed to eat and I needed to eat something fast. Cereal was not going to cut it for me. I needed something heartier. So I came up with this divine creation. I'm sure you're familiar with french toast. I don't know why I never thought of this before, but if you add peanut butter and bananas to an already delicious french toast breakfast, well, my. You are in for a treat.

Peanut Butter Banana French Toast
Yield: 1 serving
Total Time: about 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

2 slices of hearty bread
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
1 banana, sliced
2 Tablespoons peanut butter
Maple syrup

DIRECTIONS:

Start by making the french toast. Head a griddle over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Meanwhile, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large, shallow dish. Fully immerse the bread slices into the batter and transfer to heated griddle. Let cook for about 2-3 minutes and flip, cooking for another 2-3 minutes or until both sides are golden-brown.

Now for the step that takes this breakfast to the next level. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter on a piece of cooked french toast. Top with half of the sliced bananas. Place a second french toast slice on top and repeat with the remaining peanut butter and banana slices. Finally, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy a hearty, indulgent, delicious breakfast.
