20--- Gorilla French Toast

NO WAY! You mean I REALLY get to eat all of my favorite foods combined into one breakfast (except for Thanksgiving stuffing- let's not be gross)??

Nutella........... check

Yep. That's all I need (no joke- that's about all the calories I need for a full day).

If you make this, please don't tell your family that you got the recipe from a dietitian-- it will completely discredit my profession.

Gorilla French Toast
Serves 4

4 medium croissants, sliced
1/2 cup Nutella
1/4 cup light cream cheese
2 medium bananas, sliced into 1/4" slices
2 eggs
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Confectioner's sugar (optional as garnish)

In a small bowl, whip cream cheese and Nutella with an electric mixer. Spread 3 Tbsp mixture onto croissant halves (1 1/2 Tbsp each half). Add banana slices on top of Nutella spread and place halves back together.

In a medium dish, mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dip each side of croissant into egg mixture and then place croissant into a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Flip croissant after ~2-3 minutes or until cooked side is golden brown. When second side is golden brown, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar (if desired) and serve warm!


  1. WOW is right! I made this for breakfast this a.m. My hubs said it was THE best french toast of any kind that he had ever had ;-) Thanks for the recipe!
