I was in the mood for a sweet and indulgent breakfast, but I didn't want a ton of sugar or fat. I got creative... With the use of turbinado sugar--a.k.a. Sugar in the Raw--I lowered the sugary impact on my diet. Using just a touch of rum I created a rich and intense flavor. It satisfied my want for something indulgent, was just the right size, had one serving of fruit and made me feel like I was being naughty ; )
Kara's Skinnier Bananas Foster French Toast
- 1 large banana
- 1 Tbsp. Butter
- 1 Tbsp. turbinado sugar
- 1/2 cap full of rum
- 1 whole egg, beaten well
- 1 slice of reduced calorie whole wheat bread
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1. Peel and slice your bananas as shown, once lengthwise and once cross wise. Beat the egg, vanilla and cinnamon together.
5. While the bananas are caramelizing and the sauce is reducing, coat each side of the whole wheat bread in the beaten egg mixture and pan fry as any other french toast. (Medium heat in a non-stick frying pan)
6. Top the slice of French toast with the bananas and pour the syrup from the pan over top. No need for any additional butter, syrup or dusting sugar. It's already there : )
