Why wait for the weekend to enjoy French toast when you can whip up this irresistible banana enriched breakfast in practically no time.


  • ½ cup fat-free milk (skim)

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Coarse salt

  • ½ 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.
