Ingredients

  • Half an overripe banana mashed
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice*
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 slices of whole-wheat bread cut into strips
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil

Instructions

  • In a large shallow bowl, mash the banana. Next mix in the egg, pumpkin puree, milk, and cinnamon.
  • Cut the bread into strips. I got about 5 strips per slice of bread.
  • Place the strips into the pumpkin mixture and allow to soak for a couple of minutes per side to absorb the moisture.
  • In a large frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat and place the strips in the pan in a single layer. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until slightly browned and golden. Flip and cook on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and serve plain or with fresh fruit or maple syrup.

Notes

* For babies, I recommend using full-fat milk, but for older children and adults, feel free to sub in a lower fat milk or milk alternative such as almond milk
