It's peanut butter time!

Peanut butter and banana French toast.

Have you seen the 40-year-old Virgin?
Remember FRENCH TOAST? (Here’s a clip of that scene. Swearing is involved. So you’ve been warned.)
Ha ha!
Anyway, years ago Curt and I were watching some diner or cooking show and someone made peanut butter and banana French toast.
It sounded amazing. The version they made was super unhealthy.
I decided to take a stab at it with a healthy spin to it.
I don’t make a lot of breakfast. But I made this recipe recently and thought it would be a good idea to share.
Here’s my version of peanut butter and banana French toast:

  • 2 slices Sara Lee Delightful wheat bread
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter (I prefer creamy, but for this recipe crunchy works better)
  • 12-1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon fat free milk

The ingredients listed are for one serving. Double or triple ingredients for extra servings.
I like to smoosh the banana onto my bread. Other slice I spread the peanut butter.
Dip “sandwich” into the egg whites/milk.
Use cooking spray oil in the pan. Grill it up and enjoy!
You get some protein and a fruit. It’s yummy. And melty heated up peanut butter is delish!

Since I shared a peanut butter recipe above I thought I would share a second one, a yummy and easy snack.
Sometime back I wrote about the peanut butter energy balls I made and shared at work.
Here’s the recipe again, in case you want to try it yourself:
1 cup regular oatmeal
12 cup peanut butter (I added about 34 cup.)
13 cup pure, unfiltered honey
1 cup coconut flakes
12 cup ground flaxseed
12 cup chocolate chips (or craisins or raisins or another sweetness of your choice)
1 or 2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Using your hands, mix all the ingredients well in a bowl.
Let it chill for at least 12 hour in the fridge.
After the mixture is chilled, use a teaspoon to size out scoops of the mixture and roll into balls.
They will keep in Tupperware in the fridge for seven days.
