RECIPE: Banana French Toast

Wow, this was so easy, I had to post it!  It has just the right amount of banana flavor but isn't overwhelming.  The outside is crisp, and the inside is creamy.  It's good with maple syrup but doesn't really need it.  I'll definitely be making it again!

Original recipe: Easy Banana French Toast (I changed it considerably)

Banana French Toast
Makes 4 slices

1 small ripe banana, peeled
3 eggs
1-2 T. water
3 pinches cinnamon (a pinch is an actual measurement, use these spoons for accuracy)
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch allspice
1 pinch vanilla powder (or 3 drops extract)
4 slices farm bread
2-3 T. ghee

Combine everything except the bread and the ghee in a pint jar and, using an immersion blender, blend to liquid.

Transfer to a shallow container, like a pie plate.

In a frying pan large enough to hold 2 slices of bread, heat the ghee over medium heat.  Dip one slice of bread into the egg-banana mixture turning it twice until it's saturated.  Transfer to the frying pan.  Repeat with a second slice.  Flip when the bottoms are brown, 2-5 minutes depending on your cooktop.  When the second sides are brown, remove to a  warm plate.

Repeat with the remaining 2 slices.

Serve with maple syrup, or powdered sugar and lemon juice.
