Guys, this recipe was a smashing success. We woke up a little worried that we didn’t have enough ingredients on hand for a great breakfast, but we made do with what we had and knocked it out of the park. Couldn’t have been simpler, either.

Our children love cheese sticks, and as much as I love the idea of deep frying battered mozzarella, I’d rather something be a) healthier and b) less messy. This recipe is both and delicious too! Continue reading “Quick Baked Cheese Sticks”
Today called for a quick, healthy, and tasty snack, so I went with one of my childhood favorites: peanut butter apple slices. Continue reading “Graham Cracker Peanut Butter Apple Slices”
Holy cow, talk about delicious! To be honest, I doubted my wife when I saw her removing these from the stove-top. I have my fair share of recipes that haven’t quite gone according to plan, and for a moment I expected the same out of these. Let me assure you, I could not have been more wrong! These sweet cream cheese & banana stuffed french toast sticks may be my favorite take on french toast yet!
Banana Stuffed French Toast Sticks
For this recipe we made 6 sandwiches altogether.
12 slices whole wheat bread
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar
2 cups Graham cracker crumbs
4 oz Cream cheese
Add powdered sugar to cream cheese and mix to desired sweetness. Spread over bread and top with thinly sliced bananas. Close the sandwiches. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs. On a separate plate, combine cinnamon, sugar, and graham crackers. Quickly dip the sandwiches in the egg mixture and transfer to graham cracker mix for an even coat throughout. Heat butter over medium heat and grill sandwiches until each side is crispy. Slice long ways and serve!
Tip: Do not allow children to taste until food is on the table, otherwise you may inadvertently trigger a stampede!
I had to think of a snack for the kids in a pinch, and I just so happened to have Nutella, peanut butter, and graham crackers on hand. Boom! Gourmet peanut butter cups! All three kids loved them, which is a win in my book 🙂
