Blueberry Banana Stuffed French Toast {with Ezekiel 4:9® Flax Sprouted Whole Grain Bread}

Happy Tuesday guys! If you had MLK Day off, like me, I hope your long weekend was wonderful!

Just a little tease of what’s to come…..

Last week I received a very special delivery from Food for Life; their brand new bread, Ezekiel 4:9 Flax Sprouted Whole Grain Bread. I was really excited to try this product out because I buy regular Ezekiel 4:9® Sprouted Whole Grain Bread from Food for Life every week and, also, often purchase the Ezekiel 4:9® Cinnamon Raisin Whole Grain Bread. I’ve loved all of the Food for Life products that I’ve tried, so I fully expected to love this new flax Ezekiel bread and let me tell you, I do!! Just click on the links above to see the nutritional information of each of the breads.

This bread has a lovely heartiness that is simply delicious. One night last week, I actually was craving a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I used the new Ezekiel Flax bread and it was wonderful. Just look at that seedy fluffiness……

Since I was loving this bread so much, I just had to come up with an extra special recipe designed especially for the Ezekiel flax bread. I couldn’t think of anything more divine than stuffed French toast.

I decided to stuff the French toast with some of my very favorite ingredients…..1 tbsp Chobani Greek yogurt, 1 tsp nutbutter, banana and blueberries. Mash the banana and combine with the nutbutter and yogurt. I heated the yogurt mixture in the microwave for about 15 seconds, just to take the chill off.

I even used Chobani’s brand new banana flavor. It was perfect! Chobani’s blueberry flavor or Chobani Champions banana honey would also be fabulous in this recipe.

002

Start off by dredging your two pieces of bread in 2 egg whites that have been combined with 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Pan-fry your bread over medium-high heat for about 3 mins on each side and until the egg is set.

003

Once your French Toast is thoroughly cooked, plate it and spread your yogurt mixture over the top of one piece of the bread and add blueberries on the yogurt. Place the other piece of toast on top {sandwich style}.

005

Top with your favorites….Pure maple syrup, diced banana and blueberries were perfect!! Enjoy….I know you will!! For the full printable recipe, see my recipage.

See you back here tomorrow for What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. This looks amazing! I will be making this for sure (with gluten free bread of course). I used to be an Ezekiel fanatic before being diagnosed as Celiac! I miss it so much!

  3. What a creative way to make French toast!

    I LOVE Ezekiel bread. I am especially a big fan of the whole grain and sesame varieties. It is my favorite bread brand and I actually feel good about eating it! It is also my bread of choice for a good ole PB & J! Enjoy Life also has great sprouted tortillas!

  4. I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of French toast, but stuffing it with banana and nut butter makes it sound soooo much more delicious. Love this recipe!

  7. Okay, so when I first saw that you were using Ezekiel bread for French toast, I was skeptical. But the pictures just look so amazing, and I love the ingredients. I think I’m going to have to give this recipe a go. :) By the way, can I just say that you take gorgeous food pictures?
