You-Can-Do-It French Toast With Nutella and Bananas

Hi everyone! As I always say, if our minds are open, we can pick up recipes in the most unlikely of places. Take my Pediatrician’s office for example.

Cindy Medina who assists our Dr. loves to cook and often shares her recipes with me when we have a check up for the kids. At this last appointment for my littlest one, I left that office with a keeper: Nutella and banana french toast. I made a few changes and am so excited to have this in my repertoire!

Thanks, Cindy!

Nutella Banana French Toast:


Two pieces of bread (preferably whole wheat or multigrain)
1-2 TBS nutella or other hazelnut spread
1/2 banana sliced thinly
One egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
Few drops of vanilla extract
Butter for frying


1)In a medium sized bowl, mix the egg, the vanilla extract and the milk and set aside
2)Spread the nutella on one piece of bread
3)Lay the sliced bananas on top of the nutella covered bread
4)Cover the banana-nutella bread with the second slice of bread
5)Dip the entire sandwich in the egg mixture, making sure to soak for a few seconds on each side
6)Heat up the grill, add some butter to fry. When it’s hot, fry the sandwich until browned , flip and when it’s browned on the other side, remove and serve.

Serves one lucky diner! Serve with fresh fruit.
