Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 oz low-fat Cream Cheese
    2 Tbsp unsalted natural peanut butter
    1/4 c nonfat plain greek yogurt
    3 tsp pure maple syrup, divided
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    8 slices, whole wheat bread
    2 egg whites
    1 egg
    1/4 cup low-fat milk (preferably 1%)

    2 medium bananas, peeled and sliced
    1 Tbsp fresh Orange Juice
    1 tsp Orange Zest
    Olive Oil cooking spray


    Clean Eating rates this at 332 Calories and SP rates it higher. Part of the difference I think is the number of calories SP calculates for the bread. If you use lower calorie bread the recipe will be less than stated here.

Directions

1. In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, peanut butter, yogurt, 1 tsp maple syrup and cinnamon until smooth and creamy. Spread 2 1/2 tbsp cream cheese mixture onto each of 4 bread slices. Top with remaining 4 bread slices, set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk egg whites, egg, milk and nutmeg; set aside.

3. In a separate small bowl, toss bananas with orange juice and zest; set aside.

4. Heat a medium saute pan on medium-high. Mist with cooking spray. Immediately dip 1 sandwich in egg mixture, coating both sides, and place in pan. Repeat, cooking 2 sandwiches in pan at once. Brown sandwiches, about 1 minute per side. Remove and top with banana mixture and remaining 2 tsp maple syrup, dividing evenly. Serve immediately.

In my picture it is round because I didn't have bread slices at home. I used whole wheat bagel thins, turned them inside out and they worked just fine.
