Jazzed Up PB&J

Want to jazz up your usual PB&J? Just give it a french twist. Here's a recipe from my new blog. I was inspired by an episode of Iron Chef America last night.

Stuffed French Toast

the sandwich
2 slices of whole wheat bread
1 TBS peanut butter
1 ripe banana

the sandwich coating
1/2 c non-dairy milk
1 TBS whole wheat pastry flour
1 TBS nutritional yeast
1/2 TBS agave nectar (or sweetner of choice)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt

The first step is to design your sandwich. I only put enough peanut butter to coat the inside of both slices. Excess peanut butter isn't really my thing, but if you want more, slather it on! I then make a single layer of banana slices on the peanut butter to stick. Put both slices together and set aside.

Mix the coating for the sandwich in a bowl until mixed smoothly together. Try to get rid of the lumps so it doesn't look too soupy. Heat a skillet on medium heat and either spray or coat with your oil of preference. I happen to like coconut oil. Leaves mine crispy, which I love. Dunk your sandwich into the mixture. And then place on warm skillet. Wait till the first side is browned and then flip over. Once cooked to your liking, place on plate. Top with agave nectar (maple syrup if you prefer, both are delicious!) and some organic preserves. I topped mine with strawberry preserve because that's what I had hanging out in my fridge (very cheap at Trader Joe's ;D).
