Banana and Almond Butter French Toast

Yesterday, I took my daughter to lunch with the girls.  We ventured to the bustling hot spot known as Panera at our local district.  There we were, ordering our perfectly grilled Panini’s and broth bowls when I spotted it.  The last loaf of fresh Challah.  Sitting there on the top shelf of the bakery. So alone. So blended into the honey brown millwork of the store shelves.  It was calling to me. “Buy me!”. “Make me even more delicious than I already am!”.  Who am I to deny a lonely Challah.  I purchased the Challah thusly. I believe I saved it from the fate of the dumpster and delivered it perfectly into banana and almond butter French toast!

Ohhhhhhh my almond butter banana craziness! Rescued Challah: check. Almond butter: check. Bananas: check. French toast custard: CHECK!

Wait, I forgot the syrup! Who does that? Glad I caught that….Okay, we are ready to make the best ever stuffed French toast! If you have never made French toast with challah bread before, stop what you are doing, go out and purchase Challah then come home and make it immediately! It’s dinner time you say?  That’s perfectly fine, who doesn’t  love breakfast for dinner? Right? Right…..

There are a few more things you will need to create this magical plate of goodness. Coconut oil, real butter, cinnamon and powdered sugar.

Low heat and slow cooking will be key in maintaining the golden brown texture.  The secret to the unbelievable scrumptious taste is the combination of butter and coconut oil that these are pan fried in. I am such a huge fan of coconut oil and not because it is all the rage right now.  There is a slight sweetness that is added and beautifully understated when you cook with it.  Combining it with butter enhances the flavor and lends the silky smooth shine that eggs love to be served in. Ask them, they will tell you! Okay, maybe not but it’s fun to talk to your food sometimes.

You don’t have banana’s or almond butter you say? Don’t worry! This would be fabulous with peanut butter, cashew butter, strawberries, blackberries, and just plain! The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

What are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking!
