Banana French Toast in a Mug

May 15, 2012

Hey there!

Frech Toast

Do you ever wish you could have French Toast for breakfast?

Do you ever wish that French Toast didn’t take so long to make?

I mean I know this sounds silly because French Toast comes together pretty quickly. But I’m talking about quick-ER. Like, as in, two minutes!!!!!

Frech Toast1 

And the type of French Toast that you don’t have to share.

Yeah? Then this is for you.

Single serving of French Toast, ready in two minutes!

Frech Toast-3

The only b-a-d thing about easy peasy French Toast is that I want it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I’m all about having breakfast at ANY time during the day. Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal. So I will use any reason to eat breakfast for dinner. No problemo.

The hubby is not really big on this idea. He’s been eating fast food a lot for dinner. Because I can’t put the mug down.

Frech Toast2

or the syrup for that matter.

Please send for help. I need to be saved.

Frech Toast2

Or don’t.

Because I’m perfectly content drowning in maple syrup, bananas, and eggy bread.

Frech Toast-5

This is the way everyDAY should start!

…or lunch…or dinner…

even snack time.

Frech Toast-7

French Toast in a Mug

2 slices whole wheat bread, cut in cubes

1 egg

4 tablespoons almond milk

2 tablespoons applesauce

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 banana, sliced

maple syrup

Layer half the bread cubes in to a coffee mug. Top with 1/2 of the banana slices. Layer with the remaining bread cubes and top it of with the rest of the banana.

In a small bowl whisk the egg, almond milk, applesauce, cinnamon and vanilla together. Pour over the top of bananas and bread. Place mug in microwave for 2 minutes on HIGH.

Remove from microwave and top with syrup. Be careful…even though you want to scarf it, it’s gonna be hot!

I will have to try this one for sure. I love French toast, and I wouldn’t have to share this on with Bailey, the Wonder Dog!

Oh, I can’t WAIT to try this! French toast is my favorite breakfast food but I usually save it for the weekends when I have time to pull out the frying pan. Now I get to have it allllllll the time!

I am a total sucker for meals made in mugs. I usually stick to egg dishes… so excited to see one of my favorite breakfast dishes turned into a mug meal. I’m so making it this weekend! :-)

Jeers:-( Tried this and it was a disaster. It was not done in 2 mins or 3 mins so I added another 2 mins and it still was soggy and not eatable. I followed the receipe. What went wrong.
