Healthy Stuffed French Toast
This healthy stuffed French toast with banana and almond butter is loaded with healthy fat and protein, but still absolutely delicious.
- 4 slices of whole grain bread gluten-free, if necessary
- 1/2-1 banana thinly sliced
- 2 -3 Tablespoons almond butter
- ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
- coconut oil for pan
- maple syrup and fresh berries for topping
Take your four slices of bread and create two almond butter and banana sandwiches. Each sandwich should have about 1 Tablespoon of almond butter and a few banana slices.
Whisk together almond milk, egg, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and pour in a container large enough to soak the sandwiches. One at a time, soak sandwiches on both sides until they are nice and moist -- about 10 seconds on each side.
Pre-heat a non stick skillet on medium-high heat. Coat with coconut oil to prevent toast from sticking.
Place sandwich in pan and cook for 4-5 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown. Flip sandwich, press on sandwich with your spatula and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and repeat the process with the second sandwich.
Cut each sandwich in half diagonally to make 4 servings. Serve with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup.
