Ever have a hankering for something sweet and carby in the morning but wish you could eliminate all the fat and calories that come with it? Well, I don't want to take away ALL of the fun, but here is a recipe for a healthier version of a classic breakfast splurge, french toast!
What you will need:
2 Slices of Thin Sliced Dave's Killer Bread (You can use any bread you like but in an effort to keep the calories down, I love their 60 calorie thin sliced bread!)
1 TBSP Butter or Earth Balance Buttery Spread
1 Egg, Beaten
1/2 Banana, sliced
Handful of Raw or Roasted Pecans, Unsalted
2 Pinches of Coconut Sugar
Ground Cinnamon to Taste (optional)
Sea Salt to Taste
Maple Syrup to Taste
First thing's first, heat up that butter in the skillet and keep the pan at medium heat.
Dip your bread slices in the egg and evenly coat both sides.
Place your bread in the hot skillet and sprinkle some coconut sugar on top.
After a few minutes, flip the bread and make it so both sides are an even golden brown.
Once the toast is golden brown, remove from skillet and place on a plate.
Throw your bananas and pecans in the still hot skillet and pan fry for a minute or so to get them warm.
Top your toast with banana and pecan mixture.
Sprinkle a bit of sea salt and cinnamon on top and drizzle your masterpiece with an ample amount of maple syrup and VOILA. Enjoy!
