Banana French Toast

Submitted by: ZOOBOOZEL

Introduction

My mom used to make this delicious version of French toast for breakfast when I was growing up as a great alternative for getting rid of overripe bananas. It makes regular French toast seem bland in comparison!

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    3/4 c skim milk
    1 egg (whole large)
    2 egg whites (from large eggs)
    1 medium overripe banana
    1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    10 slices bread

Tips

This is excellent topped with a low calorie maple syrup or your favorite yogurt (I like strawberry).


Directions

Heat a large non-stick skillet on stove top over medium low to medium heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
.
Place all ingredients, except bread, in a blender. Mix until well combined.
.
Pour into a large, shallow bowl or container. Lightly dip individual bread slices into mixture, coating both sides, then place in skillet.
.
Cook each side of French toast until it is deep brown in color, but not black or burnt. (golden brown will be undercooked)
.
Makes approximately 10 pieces of French toast. (Because some breads soak up more liquid than others you may get more or less out of the egg mixture, depending on what kind of bread you use. If you do, divide 296 by the number of pieces of French toast you made up to get the calories. Then, add that number to the amount of calories in a slice of the bread you used)

    This was a great breakfast! With 55 calorie Apple Cinnamon Struesel bread from Sunflower Farmers Market, it was absolutely delicious! We ended up getting 12 pieces of french toast from a batch, so 80 calories per piece. - 3/9/09

  • This was so yummy! I served it to my husband, his two guys friends, & five kids (ages 1 to 11!), & they all liked it! I served it with low-fat whipped cream & blueberries! The added banana made it thicker. I think next time I'll try a different bread, my plain wheat bread was a little blah. - 3/14/11

  • OMG, so good! Satisfied my french toast craving and the banana was a tasty addition, something I never would have thought of. Good calorie-count, too. I like how you left the bread out of the recipe -- made it easier to track. - 9/4/10

  • I rather enjoyed this recipe, my husband however, didn't really care much for it. He doesn't like things to be different from what he's used to, so that's probably his issue. I really liked it though. - 6/14/09
