Cinnamon Banana Toast
In Among Friends, M. F. K. Fisher mentions this snack from her childhood that I found simple yet intriguing. The snack in the book consists of a slice of toast topped with a mixture of mashed banana, dark brown sugar and nutmeg. I decided to try a version of it this morning for breakfast. SO good! Since I'm tying to be healthy I used whole wheat bread and omitted the brown sugar (bananas are pretty sweet anyhow). We didn't have nutmeg, so I used cinnamon instead. Visually, it was not all that appealing, but it was damn satisfying with a hot cup of coffee. When I was younger I used to eat cinnamon sugar toast (or tortillas) for breakfast quite often. This is just a slightly healthier version of that childhood favorite!
