Breakfast hands down is my favorite meal.. it’s when I like to have the most fun with my food and try to get creative. I have to tackle my dislike for eggs though.. I know I know… eggs and breakfast go together like milk and cookies ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t do eggs on their own but I have learned how to enjoy them by getting a little creative with some “eggy” recipes and putting a little twist on it. My banana cinnamon french toastย ย is one of my favorite recipes to cook up in the morning so I decided to play on that one and created this delicious maple pecan banana french toast, just 6 freestyle smart points per serving.
