This Banana and Peanut Butter French Toast recipe is a great choice for lazy Sunday mornings as well as a tasty way to use up stale bread.
You need the following ingredients to make this French Toast recipe.
- 2 Slices of bread
- Smooth peanut butter
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 20ml whole milk
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Follow these directions to make this French Toast recipe.
Mash the banana with a fork and then spread on a slice of bread
Spread the peanut butter onto the other slice of bread and then bring the two pieces together to make a sandwich.
Cut the crusts off the sandwich to form a nice square, this way the sandwich can soak up the egg mixture on all edges.
Crack the egg into a wide rimmed bowl and add the milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract and then mix together well.
Place a frying pan on a medium heat and add a generous knob of salted butter.
Dip the bread into the egg mixture ensuring a good covering on all sides, including the edges
Place the sandwich in the frying pan and gently fry on all sides until it is crispy with a touch of brown on each side. Try to cook the edges of the sandwiches as well. If you are wondering how to do that then check out the video below.
Once the french toast is ready serve it with drizzles of syrup and a dusting of icing sugar.

Alternatives to this recipe
You can make this French toast recipe with the following delicious variations
- Swap the banana for caramelised apple slices (apple fried gently in butter and sugar).
- A slice of mild cheese on the inside of this French toast will go really well. I recommend a slice of Gouda.
- If you are not an egg fan than just sprinkle the cinnamon on the bread and then fry in the butter with a little vanilla extract mixed in to the melted butter.
- If you don;t like peanut butter or fancy something different then substitute with chocolate spread or even squares of chocolate. If you are interested in making a chocolate version then check out this post.
