It is another rainy day in Texas and I wanted to make a delicious breakfast for my two boys. I absolutely love french toast and the original always left me feeling sick and gave me a major sugar rush. When I was a child, before I was allowed to use the stove I would soak my bread in egg and microwave it. Thankfully, my cooking skills have matured since then and I know how to make some delicious french toast, that is fully on my Trim Healthy Mama plan and is every bit as tasty as the original. Those who are following THM this is an E meal.

French Toast

French Toast

1 cup of egg whites
5 slices of Ezekiel bread (I use this kind and I find it in the freezers at Kroger)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1.5 Tbs water

Whisk the egg whites, vanilla, cinnamon, and water together. I like to use water in my eggs because it makes them nice and fluffy. I also use it in omelets.
Spray a nonstick skillet with a light coating of coconut oil and turn the heat to medium. Soak the Ezekiel bread in the egg white mixture until its slightly spongey. Put the bread in the skillet and cook for about 3-5 min on each side, or until it is nice and golden brown.

Top with some powdered Erythritol. I buy mine from THM and put about 1/4 in my single cup ninja and blend it til its powdered. It taste exactly like powdered sugar, but does not impact your blood sugar level. I enjoyed some nonfat greek yogurt and some fresh strawberries on the side.
It was baby approved too!

yum yum!

Banana Bread

Banana Bread

This morning a bunch of black mushy bananas greeted me in the kitchen and since it is September 1st and fall is right around the corner I felt like it was banana bread time. I always buy a bunch of bananas every time I go to the grocery store, because they always look so pretty and delicious. I rarely eat bananas though so they always turn black and no longer look appetizing. Growing up, wasting food was basically the unpardonable sin so I have dutifully froze all the old mushy bananas and use them in smoothies. Instead of getting out a large freezer bag, I preheated my oven and made a delicious batch of banana bread and pretended it was a cool fall day.

Banana Bread Recipe

4 old mushy bananas smashed

1/3 cup melted butter

3/4 cup of sugar

1 beaten egg

1 Tbs vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg

1 1/2 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl smash the bananas with a wooden spoon and then add all the wet ingredients and mix well. Add in the seasonings and then the flour. stir well. Spray a 4×8 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and pour the batter in. Bake for 50 min-1hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 20 min and then dump out and enjoy a warm slice topped with some butter. I doubled the recipe because I had so many bananas, feel free to double or even triple the recipe!
