French toast with nutella and bananas
February 6, 2017
Love can be decadent and still be healthy!
Most days, we wake up with oatmeal or eggs, but sometimes I like to pamper my boys. This Valentine’s day, I’ll be whipping up this delicious recipe for French Toast with Nutella and Bananas.
Who doesn’t want a naughty, nutty, chocolatey banana bite that’s secretly wholesome? I made mine with wheat bread instead of the usual brioche, added bananas, and substituted Earth Balance for regular butter.
For your big guy, serve with a latte (or a glass of champagne…) and a flower. For your little one, substitute the espresso with a milky ba-ba!
Sweetness for your sweets!
FRENCH TOAST WITH NUTELLA AND BANANAS
- 8 slices Whole Wheat Toast
- 4 Tbls. Nutella
- 2 Bananas
- 2 Eggs
- ¼ cup Vanilla Almond Milk
- 4 Tsp. Earth Balance butter
- Strawberries and Powdered Sugar, for garnish
- Heart-Shaped Cookie Cutter
Cut a heart out of 8 pieces of bread, then spoon and spread Nutella onto 4 pieces. Cut bananas into slices, distribute the slices evenly on top of the Nutella covered bread, then top with the plain bread to make 4 sandwiches. Beat together the eggs with the almond milk in a medium sized bowl, then individually dunk the hearts in the mixture, flipping so both sides are saturated. Melt 1 tsp. of Earth Balance butter in a pan on medium heat, then cook the hearts one by one until golden brown, re-greasing pan as needed. Plate, garnish with strawberries, dust with powdered sugar, and love every bite!
