I’m totally a carb for breakfast kind of person.
You’ll usually find me with oatmeal, pancakes, toast, waffles, bagel, or muffin for breakfast. Every once in a while I’ll have an egg or something else for breakfast. But it’s not very often. That’s why my hubby and I work out so well together. He’s the eggs for breakfast guys and I’m the sweet carby breakfast girl. So of course I sneak a few bites of eggs, bacon, carne adovada, or sausage from his plate.
And can I just say that any breakfast food that is served with syrup totally make my mouth water and gets me weak in the knees.
I love, love, love syrupy breakfasts.
And this Sunday I had a gigantic craving for a bite sized, finger food, syrup laden breakfast treat.
I fell asleep on Saturday night dreaming of French toast sticks. And child labor. No joke. My brain is obviously all over the place and my dreams are being influenced by my huge life priorities. The child labor is a given, but who knew French toast sticks were so high up on the list.
I used to be a Sonic French Toast Stick freak. I absolutely loved those things. So I almost just went for a good ole plain French toast stick covered in powdered sugar sprinkling. But then I saw the bundle [bundle?] of bananas on the countertop when I went to grab my bread. Bananas with French toast = a no brainer…but anytime I have bananas I have to have peanut butter.
So that was that.
Bread, slathered with peanut butter, topped with bananas slices, and cooked to a golden crisp. I guess now that I’ve got French toast sticks off the brain, all that’s left is the child labor. Help me.
- 4 slices of bread [I used Udi's Gluten Free]
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 4 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Spread peanut butter over two of the slices of bread. Place banana sliced on top of peanut butter, then cover each slice with the other slices of bread. So now yous should have two peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
- Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the egg, egg white, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla. Dunk each sandwich in the egg batter, flipping over a few times to make sure the whole sammy is good and soaked. Place sandwiches in the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on one sides, or until sandwiches are golden brown. Flip the sandwiches over and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove sandwiches from skillet and place on a cutting board. Cut the sandwiches in to 4 even strips, creating the French toast sticks. Serve up with some powdered sugar and maple syrup.
