Monkey French Toast

I’m participating in the Celebrity Cook-Along hosted by Lynn at Happier Than A Pig In Mud. This months celebrity chef is Rachael Ray, and I decided to make her Monkey French Toast. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so I headed directly to Rachael’s brunch recipes when I looked her site up. This is also one of many “Yum-o!” recipes – it’s good and good for you. To find out more about Yum-o!, Rachael’s nonprofit organization, go to

My Verdict: Delicious! How can you go wrong with a dish that has peanut butter and bananas in it? You cant when it comes to my household bunch. Warm, sweet, gooey… what a wonderful breakfast treat.

1 small ripe banana, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon honey, plus some for drizzling
1/4 cup peanut butter (I used natural)
4 slices whole grain bread (I used my homemade bread)
2 eggs, beaten
A splash of milk
1 tablespoon butter

Mash the banana with a fork and combine with honey and peanut butter.
Make two sandwiches with bread and monkey spread.
Dip sandwiches in eggs beaten with milk.
Cook on a griddle or skillet in warm butter until golden on each side and cooked through.
Drizzle with a little extra honey or my Homemade Syrup and serve.

Serves 2 monkeys : )
