How to make French toast roll ups with Nutella and Banana
Flatten each slice of bread with a rolling pin. If you don’t have one, you can use a mason jar or a glass bottle instead (just make sure the bottle is clean).
Then, cut the bananas in half and again in half horizontally. You will end up with 8 pieces.
Spread Nutella over each slice of bread. Place a quarter of a banana onto the bread and roll into sausage. Repeat until you have prepped all rolls.
In a bowl, beat together the eggs, cinnamon, sugar and half and half until well combined. Now, melt a little piece of butter in a skillet or frying pan. When ready, dip the rolls in the egg mixture and fry until nice golden brown on all sides.
These Nutella banana French toast roll ups are best enjoyed warm with toppings of your choice.
Bread – I used crustless whole wheat bread to make these French toast roll ups but you can use white bread instead. You can also use bread with crust, but I recommend removing it.
Nutella – any hazelnut spread will do. Homemade Nutella is also an option. Also, please bear in mind that you can add less spread, if you like but you can also add more.
Granulated sugar – this can be omitted to reduce the calories.
Cinnamon – if you don’t have it on hand, omit it completely.
Half and Half can be substituted with milk or a little bit of heavy cream.
Bananas – try to choose large bananas.
I love to serve these French toast roll ups with berries (strawberries, raspberries or blueberries) and a drizzle of honey. If I have some more bananas, then I slice these as well.
You can also use maple syrup or chocolate syrup.
