sunday breakfast - french toast

I was so happy to have found this recipe, and have made it a few times already ... 
It's a healthy, satisfying take on french toast ...

Almond Banana French Toast 
2 slices whole grain bread 
1 tbsp almond butter
1/2 very ripe banana, sliced
1 egg
1 tsp milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp raw almonds, finely chopped

Spread the almond butter on one slice of the bread and top with banana slices. Place the other slice of bread on top of the banana and press firmly.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg and milk, then stir in the cinnamon. Place the chopped almonds on a plate next to the bowl of egg. Preheat a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.

Dip the banana almond butter sandwich in the egg mixture. Flip and press firmly so the bread absorbs the egg. Once the bread is saturated, about 20 seconds on each side, place the sandwich on the plate of almonds.

Press the bread into the almonds so they stick well, flip and coat the other side. Place in the skillet and cook about 90 seconds on each side, until the bread and almonds are browned, all the egg is cooked and the sandwich is heated through. Top with a little maple syrup. Serves 1.
