Monkey Spread French Toast

Serves 2 monkeys

This sweet breakfast tastes delicious all year round, but it’s easy enough for kids to make (with just a little help from a grown-up helper!) for a special breakfast-in-bed treat for Mom or Dad.


  • 1 small ripe banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey, plus some for drizzling
  • 1/4 cup natural-style peanut butter, creamy or chunky
  • 4 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • A splash of milk


  1. In a small bowl, mash the banana with a fork. Stir in the honey and the peanut butter to make the “monkey spread.” Use the monkey spread to make two sandwiches on the whole grain bread.
  2. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet. Meanwhile, stir the beaten eggs and milk together in another bowl, dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture, then cook the sandwiches in the skillet until they are golden on each side.
  3. Drizzle with a little extra honey and serve.
