Chunky Monkey French Toast

Written by Olivia Grist

Sunday Funday in the house! A few years ago, hubby and I used to celebrate Sunday afternoons by going to a local bar, drinking Blue Moon, and playing Photo Hunt. Anyone else ever play that game? It starts out pretty easy, but as the beer is flowing and the fun is happening, somewhere along the way, finding the difference between 2 photos becomes super hard, and really funny.

Anyway, since changing our lifestyles, we have to do something exciting to celebrate Sunday Funday, right?! Bring on the super yum french toast. Does that make me old and lame? Disclaimer; the french toast is much better than the Blue Moon could ever be!

What you’ll need (serves 1):
2 slices of Ezekiel Bread
1 egg white
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 banana
1/2 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp organic peanut butter
Coconut Oil or Olive Oil Spray

Slice banana into 1/2 inch pieces and lay each piece in a frying pan, sprayed with coconut/olive oil. Sprinkle the coconut sugar over the top and cook on med-low heat until browned on each side. In a square tupperware, combine egg white, almond milk, vanilla, and cocoa powder and whisk until smooth. Dip bread into egg mixture to cover entire surface, and cook over medium heat in a pan sprayed with coconut oil or olive oil. Cook about 2 minutes on each side.

Layer bread pieces, and spread organic peanut butter (Justin’s is my go-to!) across. Top with banana chunks, and use organic maple syrup if desired. I use Hey Shuga pure cane syrup for an all natural, lower calorie option.
