Duo Of Banana French Toast

#1 Fruit Award
My favorite food of the moment is bananas so I decided to create a french toast that would highlight their magnificence. French toast is delicious on it's own but when add roasted bananas and a maple-banana syrup it's phenomenal. So next time you're in the mood for something super sweet and bursting with bananas, try this unbelievable recipe.

Duo Of Banana French Toast
Gluten Free
Serves 1

1 banana
3 tbsp. sugar free maple syrup
2 slices light gluten free sandwich bread
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1/2 tsp cinnamon, divided
1/4 tsp. almond (or vanilla) extract

Optional toppings--whipped cream, walnuts, additional syrup

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Cut in banana in half. Place one half (still in the peel) on a small square of aluminum foil. Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until peel is brown all over (don't worry, it tastes better than it looks).

3. While the banana is roasting, begin the rest of the components. Peel the remaining half of the banana and cut into thin slices. Add banana slices to a small pot along with maple syrup, and 1/4 tsp. of the cinnamon.

4. Stir mixture and set over low heat. Let the mixture heat through, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the bread. 

5. In a shallow dish combine egg substitute, extract, and remaining 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Mix well.

6. Spray a skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium heat.

7. Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture, coating them thoroughly, then transfer to skillet.

8. Cook 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Flip bread and cook until second side is golden, 2-3 more minutes.

9. To assemble french toast, place bread on a large plate. Peel roasted banana then scoop out the banana and spread on bread. Top with banana-maple syrup mixture and any optional toppings.
