Banana toast dippers

I was surprised by how well my son ate these. He has extremely sensitive taste buds and usually won’t eat something the first time he tries it. But these he gobbled down. It's also a fun play date activity that gets busy (picky) boys to eat before they melt down.

1 large ripe banana
Two heaping scoops of Organic whole vanilla yogurt
2 eggs
Two tablespoons of water
Sprinkle of cinnamon
6 slices whole grain bread
Olive oil for frying

(can substitute the yogurt and water for ¼ cup whole milk and a dash of vanilla)

Various dipping items like syrup, honey, jam, applesauce, yogurt, whip cream…

Blend yogurt and banana in food processor until smooth
Pour into large shallow bowl
Add eggs water and cinnamon
Whisk until well blended
Dip both sides of bread in egg mixture
Fry in well oiled pan over medium heat until both sides are browned and egg is thoroughly cooked
Slice ¾” widthwise strips

Serve with fresh fruit and various dipping items.

My son loved trying combinations and kept eating and asking us to try his inventions.
Sorry, he ate it so fast I didn’t get any pictures.
