Delicious, flavorful panini breakfast sandwich!

  • 2 egg, omega-3, cage-free, organic
  • 1/4 c. almond milk, unsweetened, organic
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 2 tbs. almond butter, organic, raw
  • 4 tsp. maple syrup, pure, organic
  • 1 med. banana, fresh, organic
  • 4 slc. sprouted whole grain bread, from organic grains
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl. Add almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir with a fork or whisk to combine.

In a small separate bowl, combine almond butter and maple syrup.

Cut banana lengthwise into 4 thin slices then cut crosswise into halves.

Spread almond butter mixture evenly across bread slices. Top 2 bread slices with 4 banana pieces. Place remaining 2 bread slices on top to make a sandwich and press down. Dip sandwiches in egg mixture and let excess drip off.

Lightly coat a panini press with coconut oil and heat to 425°F. Place each sandwich in the panini press and cook for 3-4 minutes.

*No panini press? No problem! Heat 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the skillet, and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. When both sides are browned, cover the skillet and let cook for an additional minute - this will really help the flavors of the almond butter and banana combine as they melt together.
