Let’s be honest. Sometimes you want freshly baked banana bread just to find those ooey-gooey pockets of banana that make you feel like you’ve discovered gold! But there isn’t necessarily the time between the morning’s wake-up call and the out-the-door frenzy routine. I found that mashed bananas on toast topped with cinnamon (key ingredient here!) and walnuts provide another delicious way to dress up your morning toast.
I just love cinnamon. I could put it on just about anything. It should be a standard table setting, right there with Mr. and Mrs. Salt and Pepper. If cinnamon doesn’t grab your attention by the mere remembrance of its sweet, yet spicy taste, then how about the fact that it controls blood sugar and reduces body fat percentage—I knew there was more to my love for cinnamon!
In case you do have time this weekend for a full-on banana bread baking session, then I would take a look at Joy the Baker’s banana bread. She even has one with strawberries. This one is definitely on my “to do” list!
2 Slices of bread
Cinnamon to taste
2 T Walnuts
Toast bread lightly (it will be in the oven again for a minute or so). Mash banana and spread on toast. Sprinkle with cinnamon and put in a 300 ºF oven. Take out banana toast when topping is hot (1-2 minutes). Top with walnuts and add a drizzle of honey.
