Would it sound obnoxious if I said this was the best french toast I’ve ever had?
Because it is, hands-down.
I completely lost interest in french toast for a while after watching this scene in Road Trip, but man am I glad I got over that revulsion… because this. Is. Amazing.
Creamy mashed banana is sandwiched between two slices of wicked good whole wheat bread, then the sandwich is soaked in a peanut butter “custard” and coated in crunchy Peanut Butter Puffins crumbs before being pan-fried to crispy golden-brown perfection.
A generous drizzle of maple syrup seals the deal.
My brain is already in overdrive thinking up variations on this absolutely delicious breakfast, so you can definitely expect to see more french toast posts in the near future!
Banana Stuffed Crispy Peanut Butter French Toast for One
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Keywords: fry breakfast banana bread peanut butter
Ingredients (1 serving)
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 1 medium-sized ripe banana, well-mashed
- 1/4 cup milk (I used organic skim)
- 1 egg white
- 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup Barbara’s Peanut Butter Puffins, finely crushed (I used a mini food processor to pulse the cereal into crumbs)
- 1 tsp butter
- pure maple syrup, preferably grade B, for serving
Spread mashed banana evenly over one piece of bread. Top with second piece of bread to make a sandwich.
Whisk together the milk, egg white, vanilla extract, and peanut butter in a pie plate until well-mixed (a few lumps of peanut butter are okay).
Lay Puffins crumbs out onto another pie plate.
Dip sandwich into the peanut butter “custard”, allowing both sides to soak up the mixture for about 20 seconds or so.
Transfer custard-coated sandwich to the plate with the Puffins crumbs and press firmly to adhere.
Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat.
Place the crusted sandwich in the skillet and cook until golden brown and crisp on both sides, about 4-5 minutes total.
Serve french toast with maple syrup.
