Ingredients

2 slices Ezekiel bread
1 – 1.5 tablespoons Nutella
1 banana, sliced thin
2 tablespoons Teddy’s flax peanut butter
1/2 – 3/4 cups mini marshmallows
Non-stick butter spray to coat the pan

What you will need

A large stove-top pan or griddle
Spatula

Directions

1. Heat your stove to medium-high heat and coat pan or griddle with non-stick butter spray. Slice Ezekiel bread in halves diagonally, forming 4 triangle-shaped halves. Place bread slices on griddle. Cook until slightly browned, then flip over and cook until other side is slightly browned. While bread is cooking, cut banana into thin pieces.
2. Remove bread from heat. Spread a thin layer of Nutella on 2 of your bread slices. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on your remaining two slices.
3. Place banana slices on the peanut butter slices, then place a single layer of mini marshmallows on the same 2 slices. Cover each of these 2 halves with your Nutella slices, making each Nutella slice 2 the top of your sandwich half. Press down on the top piece of bread slowly so it will become molded into the rest of the sandwich. This will help the sandwich stay together while it continues to cook.
4. Put your sandwich back on the pan or griddle. Cook for about 2 minutes, then very carefully flip each half of sandwich over so the other side can cook. When the marshmallows seem fully melted and your bread is full browned, remove from heat.
5. Enjoy your dessert sandwich with a tall glass of skim milk!

Ingredients

2 slices (low sodium) Ezekiel bread
1 egg
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp brown or white sugar
Pumpkin spice to taste
Cinnamon spice to taste
1 medium banana
1/4 cup Aunt Jemima’s Lite Maple Syrup
1/8 – 1/4 cup walnuts
Non-stick butter spray

What you will need

A medium-sized bowl
2 stove top pans: 1 small & 1 large
Cutting board

Directions

1. Heat two separate burners to medium-high heat. While burners are warming up, mix egg, almond milk, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon spice together in a bowl. On your cutting board, slice your banana into 1/4-inch pieces. Put banana slices aside.
2. Dunk slices of bread in mixture so that they are completely soaked on both sides. Coat large pan with butter spray and begin to cook slices of bread until golden brown, flipping often so that they are cooked equally on both sides. Once browned, transfer bread onto a dinner plate.
3. Coat small pan with butter spray and add banana slices, a few shakes of pumpkin spice, and 1/4 tablespoon of sugar. Flip slices every few minutes to ensure they are completely coated in pumpkin spice and sugar. After 5 minutes, remove from heat.
4. Top your Ezekiel bread slices with the remaining 3/4 tablespoon of sugar, maple syrup, walnuts, and caramelized bananas!
