This is AMAZING. I don’t know why I never thought to do this before, especially because I am all about non-processed banana bread. Thick slices of moist banana bread are dunked in a mixture of egg, coconut milk, and cinnamon and then cooked on a pan until crispy and golden. My weekend breakfasts will never be the same.This Banana Bread French Toast has to be one of the best Paleo breakfasts that I have had. Which is great because I haven’t had luck making non-processed versions of traditional breakfasts. I still haven’t found a Paleo pancake that I love and I have failed at coming up with a Paleo dutch Pancake. And by fail I mean that I have tried to come up with a Paleo dutch pancake for months now; after about 7-8 attempts, I give up on that venture (for now).
To be honest, I can’t take the credit for this idea. One of my facebook friends recently posted about how delicious his french toast was over the weekend because it was made of banana bread. A light switch instantly went off in my head and I immediately made a banana bread and tested it out. My mind was blown. So I made it again the next day. Blown again.
The second time that I made these, I had my boyfriend help me with some maple syrup mid-pour shots… he missed the banana bread first time around, but eventually got it. hahaI can’t wait to make this again with some bacon and home-made jam on the side. My mouth is watering. I would have probably waited to take pictures of this Banana Bread French Toast until I could make it again with said bacon and jam. But I didn’t want to deprive you of this delicious goodness.
I now can’t stop thinking of all the ways to enhance banana breads for the sole purpose of using it for french toast. Can you imagine strawberry banana bread, apple banana bread, or even blueberry banana bread used for french toast!?Notice the two mugs.. my boyfriend saw my plate and wanted in on this delicious Banana Bread French Toast action. Can you blame him?
- 2 eggs
- ⅔ cup of coconut milk
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 slices of banana bread (I used 6 slices of my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread recipe and made it without the chocolate chips)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Whisk the eggs, coconut milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in a bowl and set aside.
- Heat a large pan over medium- high heat with 2 tsp of olive oil inside (add more oil if needed).
- Dunk each piece of banana bread into the egg/coconut milk mixture. Each piece needs to be fully immersed in the liquid.
- Place the wet banana bread onto the pan and let it cook until golden, flip and repeat until the other side is golden. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
