Guests for Breakfast

We have some new renters!!!
Is this a sign that Spring is finally around the corner? Lets hope so!  The birds were chirping away as I was making breakfast this morning!
Speaking of breakfast, today was one of those days where I just didn’t feel like having oatmeal. Surprised smile
Do you ever feel like that? You eat almost the same thing everyday and one day ya just not in the mood, happens to me a lot lately. I’m just going to blame on the long winter.
So instead of oatmeal I made some stuffed french toast. It may not have been as nutritious but it was delicious and hit the spot for a cold winter’s day.
Banana Stuffed French Toast
  • 2 eggs
  • splash of milk
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1-2 ripe bananas
  • peanut butter
  • nutella
  • pure maple syrup (optional)
  • powdered sugar (optional)
Whisk the eggs with a splash of milk and a dash of cinnamon until light and fluffy, set aside. Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread and nutella on the other slice of bread. Thinly slice up the banana and place on top of the nutella then add the peanut butter slice on top to form a sandwich. Dip sandwich into the egg mixture and cook on a non stick skillet until cooked through and  lightly browned. Top with maple syrup and powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy!

I think every morning should start off with some sort of chocolate and peanut butter, they are a perfect pair!
What’s your favorite breakfast in the winter?


  1. that looks amazing!
    I love spying on birds, especially in the winter. We have some pretty cardinals and blue jays around here.
    On cold mornings I love a warm bowl of quinoa with some slivered almonds or almond butter mixed in. Sometimes a little butter or flax seed oil, too.

  2. I wish I liked bananas. I guess I could just leave them out. :) I agree, chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in heaven!

  3. I'm not the biggest fan of French toast but this stuffed French toast would make an AWESOME dessert!

  4. this looks fabulous!!! and those birdies are so cute!

  5. It has nutella, I am in! This looks fantastic!

  6. I've been on a big oatmeal kick lately and loving it, but I can totally see how French Toast could be fierce competition! Yum!

  7. Gorgeous pictures and how amazing does that french toast look. yum!


  8. As a little kid I'd watch our birdhouse (that we hung on the fence for our lack of trees) intently waiting for "renters". We never had any. I love your pictures though. The little birds are so cute.

  9. That is an amazing idea! It's been way too long since I've had Nutella in my kitchen. That needs to change! :)
