Invisible Banana French Toast

Thank you for visiting! If you like this post, please don't forget to stumble!

If you have kids I think you are going to like this one!  It has been several years since I have had little ones to cook for.  I tend to look over kid pleasing recipes because it is adult tastes (for the most part!) that I am feeding in our home.  Now that we have neighbors with kids, I may tend to not overlook them so much.  Not to mention that one day I may become a grandmother and it wouldn't hurt to have a supply of kid friendly recipes around!


Several years ago, oh let me see....maybe 17....I was fairly active with a church and very active with the young people in the church.  My boys were probably in the age range of 6 & 7 the year I lead out a Vacation Bible School titled "Kids in the Kitchen".  Huh, imagine that?  Sounds right up my alley doesn't it? 

This recipe for Invisible French Toast was one that we made at the VBS and one that even I loved.  While unpacking some of my cookbooks I came across the cookbook we made for that particular VBS which holds the recipe for this really yummy french toast.  I loved the title back then and I love the title still.  If you have kids, or even if you don't, you really should try this recipe out!




Invisible Banana French Toast

1-1/2 banana, broken into chunks
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
4-6 slices bread
butter or cooking spray for frying

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend well - leaving no banana chunks (or lumps!)

Pour mixture into shallow bowl and drip bread slice into batter.  Flip to coat other side.  Place on hot greased griddle and fry until golden.  Flip and repeat. 

Serve with sliced bananas, maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon!

Wait a second...why is it invisible? Is it because it disappears so fast?

Such a smart idea! I was thinking you'd mash the banana with a fork, but duh! Of course the blender makes more sense! My daughter would love this!

Oh, wow! I make French toast quite often and throw a banana on top. But I never though to make a banana batter! That sounds like such a great idea. I just might have to try that tomorrow!
