Recipe For Banana French Toast

Updated on July 21, 2017

I eat a banana each day and everyone in my family loves french toast. One day I decided to combine my daily fruit with this breakfast fave to see how it'd turn out. The result was found very satisfying, so I thought to share the recipe here.

5 stars from 1 rating of Banana French Toast

Cook Time

Prep time: 12 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 22 min
Yields: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 fully ripened bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp whole milk
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg, (optional)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-8 slices of bread

Instructions

  1. In medium sized bowl, mash the bananas well and stir until all large pieces have been broken up. Set to the side.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together with the spices and vanilla extract.Add the previously prepared banana mixture and the milk. Whisk until all ingredients have a well-blended appearance.
  3. Lightly grease a frying pan or skillet. Preheat your pan or skillet to a medium level of heat. Melt a little margarine or butter on the surface.
  4. Dip your slices of bread into the finished mixture (only dip long enough so the sides of bread are coated, not saturated!) Lay these on your pan. Cook one side of each slice until it has a slightly crispy texture. Turn the slice and cook the other side in the same way.
  5. Remove the french toast slices from heat and place on plate. Add a little butter and top with your favorite syrup. Garnish with slices of fruit and/or whipped cream if desired.

*NOTE*

Never use green bananas for this recipe as the texture does not blend well with the other ingredients. Bananas are suitable when freckled with dark spots or at least have turned a uniform shade of yellow.

    Great idea Beth, I'll give that a try! I usually slice bananas and put them on top but I never thought about adding them to the mix.

    I'm thinking about creating a free cook book in near future and I'll be asking fellow hubbers if they want to contribute and collaborate. If you're interested, let me know.

    This is a great idea, I wouldn't have thought to incorporate the banana into the dipping mix. Will definitely try it. Thanks!
