Cinnamon Banana French Toast

 

I don’t eat sweet breakfasts often enough. I love the idea of them, but sometimes it just seems like too much fluff — that is, until I dig in and realize what I’ve been missing. This morning, I had a hankering for a sweet breakfast.

I spy 1 ripe banana and 1 loaf of fresh bread from the bakery with my little eye. Hmmm… only one thing to do.

 

This is a ridiculously easy recipe you can throw together quickly if you’re looking for something with minimal effort but fantastic results. You’ll only need some key ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen!

 

  • Bread (I used a thickly-sliced multi-grain, but use any kind you prefer)
  • Eggs (adjust the amount for however much french toast you want to make — I used 2 for my short stack here)
  • A splash of milk
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
  • Optional: walnuts for garnish
  • Pure maple syrup

 

  • Slice the bananas into small rounds
  • Heat butter and honey over medium-low heat in a skillet
  • Combine cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg together in a small bowl and coat both sides of the banana slices in the mixture
  • Cook the bananas in the skillet until golden brown on each side. Set aside.
  • To make the french toast, combine eggs, milk and about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and a ¼ teaspoon nutmeg in a bowl and coat both sides of bread in the mixture. Adjust the measurements depending on how much french toast you want to make.
  • Cook the french toast in the same skillet with the melted butter and honey and cook until golden brown — a few minutes on each side.
  • Scatter bananas on top of your french toast or even in between layers. Garnish with walnuts if desired and serve with pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
