I’ve created a healthier version of Bananas Foster French Toast using whole wheat bread.  This recipe tastes amazing and and contains very little sugar, so you can eat guilt free.  For an even healthier option you can skip the syrup entirely and you won’t even miss it.  I love the fact that the Post Great Grains cereal adds a nice crunch to the french toast. 

Target carries the Post Great Grains cereals in several different flavor options. The Banana Nut Crunch works well for this recipe, but you cal also pick up some of the other great flavors like Crunchy Pecan, Cranberry Almond Crunch and more. The Crunch Pecan would work well for this recipe too.
