Banana French Toast – 6 ingredients

I know, I know. Strawberries, blueberries, bananas & peanut butter again?? Basic. I’m going to try new varieties now!! Trying to lessen that peanut butter consumption but it’s too difficult…

I went to the ER Saturday afternoon & I only needed to wait for 1 hour before getting into my room! Not bad, but it’s probably because I got sent to pediatrics… And I’m 20??? I was fine with that, I didn’t need to wait as long compared to the adult side. I would’ve needed to wait an extra 2-3 hours!

I’m feeling less pain today & woke up feeling like eating some French toast. Healthy french toast. I love brunch places because I love fluffy pancakes, waffles and french toast! However, french toast at brunch places uses a lot of oil and sometimes it’s dipped in oil to be deep fried. Which makes it SOOOO delicious…. but not always the healthiest on the menu. I wanted french toast that still tasted delicious & healthy. So here it is!

Ingredients:
2 slices of whole wheat bread (200 calories)
1/2 cup almond milk (20 calories)
1/2 banana (mashed 1/4 cup) (50 calories)
1 egg (80 calories)
A hint of cinnamon
A splash of vanilla extract
Your favorite toppings (I added strawberries, the other half of my banana, blueberries, raspberries, peanut butter and a sprinkle of coconut shavings)

Directions:
1. Cut up your slices of bread into your desired sizes.

2. Put 1/2 the banana into a bowl & mash it. Make sure there are no pieces of whole bananas.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg and almond milk together. Pour it into the bowl with the smashed bananas and stir together. Add a hint of vanilla extract and cinnamon and stir. The batter should be pourable, not thick. Let the batter rest for several minutes.

4. Heat up your pan & add a bit of coconut oil onto the pan when hot.

5. Dip your slices of bread into the batter. Make sure it is completely coated on both sides. Cook each side until it is golden brown.

6. Add your desired toppings. Love these coconut chips I got from Whole Foods. ONLY 2 ingredients (coconut & sea salt). LOVEEEEEE.

7. Best if eaten immediately!

8. Yum… It looks more like a dessert. Oops, I think I put too much toppings. Where’s the bread?? You can lessen the toppings and not be like me. Add some maple syrup or honey on top as well if you want.

I always make sure the maple syrup I buy is 100% pure and doesn’t contain any high fructose corn syrup in the ingredient list. Smaller ingredient list, the better! The healthy life, haha. It’s fun!

AHH… Today I finished BBG 1.0 Week 4 Full Body Workout. I was suppose to do that on Friday but I was recovering from my fever. It was hard, I haven’t worked out in 3 days. I made sure nobody else was in the room at the gym before I yelled at myself to keeping going. “Don’t stop. Don’t stop. Keep going!!!” Ah, self motivation is the BEST. Last Week 4 workout done. 4 WEEKS OF BBG 1.0 DONE. 1/3 done before going onto BBG 2.0. YES. I’m starting Week 5 tomorrow & still going strong! I was weighed at the hospital yesterday & I lost weight but gained so much more muscle. My abs are slowly getting defined. Not exactly obvious… but by summer hopefully 🙂 I don’t obsess with weighing myself everyday anymore because I don’t want to care. I want being fit, strong & confident to be my goals, not the weight on the scale.

& today, I had a picnic & studying day at the park with my boyfriend 🙂 It was a nice relaxing time together!
