Foodalicious Friday

Posted: April 27, 2012 in Recipes

Seriously, wow. So good. It was hard to finish it just because we knew the joy of its deliciousness would be over.

Happy Friday!

After a few hardcore BodyRock workouts with Doug and his friend Zac this morning (reviews to come!), Doug and I celebrated with some much-needed coffee and a new, amazing recipe… You ready for this awesomeness? It was wow, so good.

Banana-Chocolate French Toast
*Recipe courtesy of the May 2012 Cooking Light magazine (thanks, Mom!). Healthier modifications made by me and Doug.


  • ¼ c. 1% low-fat milk (we used skim)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¾ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. sugar (we used about a 1/3 of a thing of Splenda)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (we didn’t add this)
  • 4 slices whole-grain bread
  • 4 ½ Tbsp. hazelnut-chocolate spread, like Nutella (I didn’t have Nutella, so instead, we melted 4 squares of Dove dark (71%) chocolate and 2 Tbsp. natural creamy peanut butter in the microwave.)
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil (we didn’t use this)
  • 1 ½ tsp. powdered sugar (we didn’t have this, so we didn’t use it)

Turn the stove onto medium-high heat and place a large nonstick skillet (we sprayed Pam on the pan, too). Combine the first 5 ingredients in a shallow dish. Spread each of the 4 bread slices with even amounts of the chocolate-peanut-butter mixture, and put the banana slices on 2 of the slices. Make sandwiches—each with one slice of bread with the choc-pb mix and banana and one slice with just the choc-pb mix. Next, coat each side of the sandwiches into the egg-milk mixture and then place them into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. When finished, sprinkle on powdered sugar and cut into triangles if desired. Each 3-triangle serving is less than 400 calories. ENJOY! We did 🙂

    Do you know how many calories this breakfast would be? Just curious; I just started Rushfit and I’ve been looking for good recipes for every meal. Thanks!

    • The protein shake, like I guessed, is probably between 200 and 300 calories, dependent on a few things: if you use a full scoop of whey protein and how many calories are in that; how much and what kind of fruit you put in; and how much and what kind of milk you put in. The ones I make are probably around 250-275 calories, but I’m sorry to say I can’t be 100% sure!
