Nutella-Banana French Toast

6 Jun

Sometimes we all need a little pick me up. I take that in the form of Nutella! While this french toast is most definetly sweet and utterly delicious, it is healthy…kinda. The egg/egg whites and whole grain bread provide a good amount of protein, espeically if devoured with half a glass of skim milk. Admitedly, it is a bit high in sugar, but most of it comes from the banana (if you really want to cut down on the sugar from the Nutella, maybe try a low-sugar chocolate hazelnut spread)

Serves one, but easily multiplied for more people.

Nutella and Banana French Toast
Crisco or small pat of butter
1 large brown egg
1~3 tbsp egg white substitute (if you need more liquid to dip the bread in)
1/8 C almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
2 pieces of whole wheat bread (I use Nature’s Own)
1 banana, about  80g
1/2 tbsp Nutella
1/2 tbsp cashew butter (you can use any nut butter you like)
Powdered sugar for sprinkling

  • Spray large pan with crisco and heat pan on medium high
  • Combine egg through nutmeg in a small bowl. Whisk thoroughly
  • Dip each piece of bread in bowl and coat each side. Place carefully in hot pan
  • Cook each side until done to your liking
  • Meanwhile, slice banana and combine nutella and nut butter
  • Place cooked bread on plate, spread on nutella/nut butter and top with banana slices and second piece of bread
  • Slice in half and garnish with powdered sugar if desired

Would I make it again? Most certainly, but I’ve got to work on my cooking time for the bread and maybe trying it out with homemade Nutella.
