Healthy (Believe It!) Cinnamon Toast

Healthy (Believe It!) Cinnamon Toast created by Nimz_

My mom used to give us decadent cinnamon-sprinkled toast, with butter or margarine to make the cinnamon-sugar stick. Now that I'm vegan and needed a butter alternative, I ended up creating this! Still has a dreamy flavor, but won't hurt you or the cows!

ingredients

directions

  • Mash the banana (easiest with a fork in a shallow bowl) to make the luscious "banana butter". Toast the bread.
  • In a jar, combine the flax, sugar and cinnamon and shake till well mixed. You may want to add more sugar- this combo had just the right sweetness for me.
  • Spread some of the mashed banana on each slice of bread, and generously sprinkle each with flaxen-cinnamon sugar.
  • Enjoy with a cold glass of rice or soy milk and a fruit bowl.

    The "banana butter" is wonderful! MASH the banana, though, don't just slice it like I first tried to do! I also mixed the flax/cinnamon into the mashed banana & it was great. I served this on the "side" with my South Beach french toast (recipe#113142) & it went perfectly. Thank you for sharing.

    Made this for breakfast this morning, and my children loved it. This one will definitely be made again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    The "banana butter" is an ingenious idea! It is healthy AND delicious! I like to use Earth Balance buttery spread to make vegan cinnamon toast, but this is a wonderful change. I will definitely make it again. The flax seeds are also a really good idea: healthy, but you wouldn't know it. I used raisin bread.

    Loved it! I've omitted the brown sugar and it still tastes good because of the sweetness of the banana. Thanks so much!
