Hey everyone! Long time no see. I’m soooo sorry I haven’t posted in so long. Really, I can’t say I have much of an excuse. Part busy, part lack of creativity in the blogging department. I swear i’ll make it up to you, though.
“Chocolate Dreams” banana french toast
This is good…. very good. In fact, my Dad dragged himself from his sleep deprived state and came downstairs to see just exactly what in Gods name I was eating that was causing me to make sounds of pure joy. It was this my friends.
- 2 slices bread (I used whole wheat, you could use whatever)
- 1/2 – 1 T Peanut Butter & Co’s “Dark Chocolate Dreams” spread
- 1/2 lrg banana
- 1 egg (or 2 egg whites/whatever substitute you might want. Personally, I like me some cholesterol. ;))
- splash of milk
- approx. 5 drops Vanilla extract
Spread the chocolate/peanut-y goodness on one side of each of your pieces of bread. Slice the banana into fairly thin circular pieces and place on one piece of bread. Smoosh these together to make a sandwich.
In a shallow dish using a fork, whisk egg, milk, vanilla and cinnamon together. (I’m not sure how much cinnamon I used. I love cinnamon. I smother things in cinnamon. Use as much as you want.) Place your sandwich in this mixture and coat one side. Flip the sandwich and coat the other side. (Use tongs if you wish, they help.)
Spray a frying pan with nonstick spray (or coat it in butter. Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone) and let it heat up on medium high heat. Once you can flick water onto it and see the droplets “dance”, it’s heated enough. Throw your dripping sandwich of excellence on there, wait for one side to brown, then flip. Put on a plate, drizzle with maple syrup if you wish and prepare to experience a food-gasm.
Now i’m off to hunt for a prom dress. 🙂 I’ll most likely blog about that eventually. Happy Sunday!!
