Blueberry Banana French Toast in a Mug
Cuisine: Breakfast
You have a lot of options with this French toast. If you include the blueberries, just make sure you allow the French toast to cool before serving to young children. And then blow on the berries to make sure they're not too hot to eat. If you choose not to add the blueberries and to use them as a topping instead, add an extra tablespoon of milk to the mix.
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • ½ ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 slice whole wheat bread, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • A few pinches ground cinnamon
  • Optional Toppings: Pure maple syrup, sliced bananas, blueberries
  1. Spray the inside of a microwave-safe, 12-ounce mug with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Place the egg, banana, and milk in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Stir in the bread, blueberries, and cinnamon until the bread is covered with the liquid, and then transfer the mixture to the prepared mug.
  3. Microwave until the egg is cooked through, 90 seconds. If the egg is set, remove from microwave, or cook another 20 to 30 seconds until done, but do this in 10 second increments. Keep a watchful eye on the mug; if you see the French toast rising up and over the mug, stop the microwave! (Use an oven mitt to remove the mug in case the handle is hot.)
  4. Allow the French toast to cool for about 5 minutes. Top with maple syrup, banana slices, and blueberries as desired.
The blueberries will get very hot, and eating them may be a challenge for toddlers and preschoolers unless you let the French toast cool for 5 minutes (or longer) and then blow on the blueberries to make sure they're warm (not hot).
