Banana Almond French Toast Sticks

French toast just seems like a Sunday thing for me…there are no classes to run to, homework to do, not much going on, and I like to swim in the afternoon. It's nice to sit down and leisurely have some french toast!
Also, if you haven't picked up on it, one of my tricks to eating without adding sugar is to add banana. The banana in this french toast really makes it nice and sweet.

For 2 slices:
Ingredients: tsp vanilla, 1 egg, 2 slices tolerated bread, 2 tsp cinnamon, 5-10 crushed almonds, 1 banana, nonstick cooking oil spray

1. Cut the banana in half and mash half of it; slice the other half

2. Whisk 1 egg and mix in 2 tsp of cinnamon, a tsp of vanilla, and the mashed 1/2 banana

3. Cut each of the 2 slices of bread into three long pieces

4. Soak the pieces of bread in the egg banana mixture and let absorb for about 10 min

5. Spray a pan with nonstick cooking oil spray and on medium heat cook the pieces of french toast

6. When egg is cooked, turn heat off

7. Top with banana slices, a dust of cinnamon, and crushed almonds

For another version, I was thinking of having a cocoa-carob topping or a strawberry mint topping. What's your favorite french toast topping?


  1. Anybody wanting to acquire weight can improve their protein shakes with the addition of things like bananas.

    1. Yes, I agree that adding bananas makes recipes more substantial and filling. Whether trying to maintain, gain, or lose weight, they're also a great, healthy snack alone!
