July 10th, 2013 posted by Amanda Formaro
Looking for a fun and tasty way to serve breakfast? French toast is always a favorite, kids love bananas, and Nutella? Say no more! The folks at TIME For Kids, a weekly classroom news magazine that motivates kids to read, have published a new kid’s cookbook appropriately titled Kids in the Kitchen Cookbook.
The book features step-by-step, easy-to-follow recipes provided by the food experts at myRecipes.com. Applesauce Muffins, Chocolate Chip Waffles, Fruit Smoothies, Sweet Potato Fries, Fish and Chips, Sloppy Joe Sliders, and Creamy Berry Fruit Pops are just some of the recipes you’ll find inside! Kids will practice measuring ingredients, reading nutritional labels and learn the basics of cooking.
For this delicious looking french toast recipe, you will need:
1 cup thinly sliced banana (about 8 ounces)
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 (1 1/2-ounce) slices whole-grain bread
4 1/2 tablespoons hazelnut-chocolate spread (such as Nutella)
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered sugar
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and salt in a shallow bowl.
Spread each of 3 bread slices with 1-1/2 tablespoons hazelnut-chocolate spread.
Arrange 1/3 cup banana slices over each bread slice. Top sandwiches with remaining 3 bread slices.
Working with 1 sandwich at a time, place into milk mixture, turning gently to coat both sides.
Carefully place coated sandwiches into pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Cut each sandwich into 4 triangles.
Sprinkle evenly with powdered sugar.
