Adapted from King Arthur Whole Grain Baking

  • 8 slices Whole Wheat or Multi-Grain Bread*
  • 6 tbs Nutella**
  • 2 medium Bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Nonfat Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup***

* For nutritional analysis, I used my Cinnamon Raisin Bread which is really good in this recipe.

**You could also use peanut butter but I think Nutella is better in this recipe.

***Optional but included in the nutritional information.

Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle to medium heat.

Spread a thin layer of Nutella on each slice of bread. Thinly slice the bananas. Place the banana on top of the Nutella on four of the slices of bread. Cover with remaining four bread slices to make a sandwich.

Beat together egg, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container such as a pie plate. Take one sandwich and dip one side into the egg mixture for 5 seconds. Turn the sandwich over and let sit for another 5 seconds. Transfer the sandwich to the skillet and fry for around 2 1/2 minutes. Turn sandwich over and fry for another 2 1/2 minutes or until done. Repeat with remaining 3 sandwiches.

If desired, top sandwiches with real maple syrup and serve.
