Jamie and Bobby love this sweet breakfast treat.

Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 5 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 teaspoon sugar
2   large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1   banana, peeled and thinly sliced
2 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup peanut butter
8   slices of white bread
1/2 cup granola
1 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
maple syrup





Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the granola in a shallow bowl; set aside. 

Spread each slice of bread with peanut butter. Drizzle honey evenly over peanut butter. Divide the banana slices among four slices of the bread; top with the remaining bread, peanut butter sides down. Remove the crusts and tightly pinch the edges of each sandwich together to seal. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Soak each sandwich in the egg mixture for 5 seconds. Roll the edges of each sandwich in granola. 

In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches, working in batches if necessary; cook about 2 minutes per side or until golden. Transfer the sandwiches to a baking sheet; bake for 10 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup.

Sounds yummy Paula, Jamie and traditional french toast, and this sound like a great variation. Have not had any french toast for quite a while, I like you Paula am trying to watch what I eat and eat a little more healthy...but with my love of butter too...and sweet home made is a challenge at times...Love you guys...thanks for all you give and have a wonderfully beautiful and blessed Christmas Season. P. S. my cat who probably weighs at least 15 lbs...just got up on my desk and completely laid on top of my mouse...totally covering it...before I could send this...they are very spoiled like children and I have two of them. A big fan - Suzanne Byrd

To Sarah - You won't find nutritional information for this. You'd have to add up the information on the individual ingredients. If your watching your weight, you should avoid Paula's recipes, or anything food related that's associated with her. This is the woman who deep fried cheesecake; she certainly has no concern for calories or health.

Can you give us your exercise routine? I love your recipes, your fun combination and your total Southern style. Unfortunately, my metabolism is stalled and to enjoy these delights, I need a rigorous exercise plan!

Followed the recipe exactly (except for using whole grain bread) and it was delicious! Yummmmmmm. Definitely making these again.

I tried this one night as a breakfast for supper and it was really good. I do agree though that you have to be careful not to leave them in the egg mixture too long. You need the oven part but even that won't help if you soak them! Delish idea though!

I just made this for the family. I didn't have granola so I used Rolled Oats and chopped peanuts. THEY LOVED IT. I think that leaving the sandwiches in the mixture for 5 seconds made them really soggy and I had a hard time flipping them. But after baking them they were cooked through and delish!
