  • Author: Handy Chef
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4


It's incredibly easy to turn my banana bread into French Toast and all it takes is 3 ingredients! Also, I made a simple and buttery banana sryup to top it off.



For the French Toast

4 slices banana bread (1/2 of one loaf)

1 egg

½ tsp cinnamon

1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)


For the Banana Syrup

1 small ripe banana

½ cup water*** (approximately)

1 tbsp cane sugar


For the French Toast:

  1.  Whisk egg and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  2. Slowly whisk while incorporating milk.
  3. In a shallow container, arrange sliced banana bread in a single layer. You can use a baking sheet for this, a large plate, or whatever you have.
  4. Pour liquid over slices, refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  5. Cook bread on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side in melted butter. 

For the Banana Syrup:

  1. Slice the bananas.
  2. Use a small saucepan to melt butter on low heat. Add bananas, cooking until bananas have browned slightly.
  3. Add water, sugar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Simmer slowly on low heat for 15 minutes (uncovered) until bananas have decreased in size, and liquid has thickened in consistency.
  5. Use to top on banana bread french toast, ice cream, or other dessert of your choice!



**You may need a bit more water for the syrup depending on how quickly the it evaporates.
