Banana French Toast

Source: Everyday Food, October 2006


  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk (skim)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 4 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 1 banana
  • 4 teaspoons pure maple syrup


  1. In a large shallow bowl, whisk together milk, egg, sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

  2. Dip bread, one slice at a time, into egg mixture, pressing down so bread absorbs liquid. In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Place all 4 slices in skillet; cook 2 minutes per side or until golden brown.

  3. Meanwhile, cut banana crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Divide bread between two plates; top with banana and syrup. Serve.

    This is a great recipe. I make this for myself and my daughter all the time because it's easy and delicious. We often are out of bananas, so we make it without and it's still great. My daughter came up with the idea to eat the slices sprinkled with lemon juice and confectioners' sugar. It may seem odd, but it is so tasty this way!
