Easy Almond Banana Toast 杏仁香蕉土司

This is a sweet savory suitable for nearly all ages.

We went to a nearby cafe for breakfast one weekend and I had an almond banana dessert. It looked rather simple and I thought I can try making this at home.

So I did and it turned out great. We had a warm breakfast served with brewed coffee for big ones & hot chocolate for little one at the comfort of our home. The total cost was only around RM10 (include drinks) but the stress-free family time was priceless. :)

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 8 min
Serving for: 2-3 persons

4 pieces of sandwich bread, remove the brown edges if you like
1 large ripe banana, cut into slices
Some almond flakes
2 table spoons of honey (I used Manuka honey)

Step-by-Step Guides:
1. Preheat the oven at 160C/180C (gas/oven).
2. Place the breads on a baking tray with some space in between, arrange the banana slices neatly, sprinkle with some almond flakes and follow by drops of honey.
3. Bake the bread for 8-10 minutes. Let it cool before serving.

The toasts came out really crispy and filled with natural sweetness, thanks to the honey and banana. Both honey and banana are ideal for easing constipation problems, I made this for Ethan after he had not passed motion for 2 days and the problem was resolved the very same day.

Useful Tips!
1. Include some prunes onto the toast if your little one has constipation problem, it adds sweetness and fiber too.
2. Some people may be allergic to nuts, if this is the first time your little one is having almond, do watch out for allergic syndrome, such as skin rashes, nappy rash.
