Here at Greatist, we believe in taking a day off. Instead of our regular programming Saturdays, our writers get a chance to write about living the greatist lifestyle and, basically, whatever they want. This is one of those awesome articles. Enjoy!
Banana and Cream Cheese Stuff French Toast
What You'll Need:
2 slices whole wheat or multi-grain bread
½ a banana
1-2 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
1 tablespoon toasted almonds, chopped (optional)
½ tablespoon honey
Cinnamon (Optional: Nutmeg)
1 large organic egg
2 tablespoons 1% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What to Do:
Spread ½-1 tbsp of cream cheese on each slice of bread. Slice the banana lengthwise into 4-5 thin strips and layer banana over the cream cheese. On the other slice of bread, sprinkle toasted almonds, nutmeg, cinnamon, and honey. Place one piece of bread over the other making a sandwich.
Whisk egg, milk and vanilla in a shallow dish. Place the sandwich in egg mixture; flipping over to make sure each side is coated in egg. Sauté on low to medium heat in a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray until golden brown.
Top with blueberries and powdered sugar.
