2 Good To Be True French Toast

February 10, 2016

2 slices good bread- sourdough if you’re trying to be “healthy”
2 eggs
2 T. brown sugar or honey
2 T. cream
2 T. real vanilla extract
2 T. peanut butter
2 T. plain yogurt
2 T. banana slices (about 6)
2 t. pepita seeds
2 t. powdered sugar

Beat eggs, br. sugar or honey, cream and vanilla, until sugar is completely dissolved. Soak your bread in it, turning carefully until every last drop is absorbed into bread.
Heat just enough unsalted butter to coat the bottom of your pan. Place bread in pan.
Please make sure your toast is cooked all the way through. At least 5 minutes per side, on low, to medium heat at the end to brown.
While your toast is cooking, make the filling by blending the yogurt and peanut butter.
Remove bread from pan. Spread pb mix, and top with banana slices on one side.
Place other slice on top.
Garnish with powdered sugar and pepitas, and a heart shaped banana slice.
Feed someone you love.

My kids love pancakes. I am not a fan of standing over the stove, pouring and flipping one by one until you have a stack that can be served. Puffins are our family name for mini Dutch  baby pancakes. Basically the same batter as pancakes, these puffy little lovelies rise up like a popover, and then quickly fall to create a niche for delectable fillings.  On days like today I can give the kids a hearty  meal, and then get  back to the final touches of dinner. From our house to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

1 C. milk

1/2 C. butter, melted (one stick)

6 eggs

1 t. vanilla

1 C. flour

1/2 t. salt

a pinch of cinnamon


Mix the milk and butter. Add the eggs and beat well. (Do not add the hot butter to the beaten eggs) Add your dry ingredients. Mix well. trying to get  as many lumps out as possible. This can also be done in a blender. (Pictured ingredients are for half of a recipe)


Pour into lightly oiled muffing tins. Use oil or cooking spray. I find butter makes them stick. Fill about 3/4 of the way.Bake in a pre heated 400 degree oven, for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.


They will rise significantly! And fall quickly, creating the pocket for filling.


Filling possibilities are endless. Here you have peanut butter, nutella, blackberry preserves and apricot preserves. A dusting of powdered sugar and breakfast is served, start to finish in less than 30 minutes.
