Banana and Coconut French Toast

There’s nothing better than sleeping in on a Sunday and then making a yummy breakfast. My breakfasts during the week are always taken on the go, so it’s nice to have a hot, sit-down breakfast once in awhile! Today I was craving French Toast, so I whipped this recipe up. It was really yummy, quick, and easy – perfect for a lazy Sunday. Have a great week! 🙂

Banana and Coconut French Toast

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread (or your favorite whole wheat bread!)
  • 1/8 cup soymilk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I didn’t have nutmeg!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2/3 small banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup

Directions:

1.) Mix milk, spices, vanilla extract, and egg whites in a bowl and whisk together. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.

2.) When skillet is hot enough, dredge one slice of toast in egg white mixture, making sure to soak both sides. Lay on skillet and cook both sides evenly until browned and egg is cooked. Repeat with second slice.

3.) Cut up banana into slices and put on a plate. Drizzle with a little maple syrup and coconut and heat for about 20-30 seconds in the microwave. Lay banana slices on top of French Toast, drizzle with maple syrup, and then sprinkle the rest of the coconut on top.
