Banana Maple French Toast – This whole grain French toast topped with sliced bananas and maple syrup will brighten any morning.

Oh, my gosh, has it ever been a busy week around here! I don’t know what happened but it seems like I got hit with three Mondays at once and I thought Friday would never get here. I’m looking forward to this weekend for some rest, cooking fun recipes in the kitchen and watching the Georgia-Florida game on Saturday! GO DAWGS! I have a few new game-day recipes I want to try out on BeeBop and that game will be the perfect opportunity.

And of course you need a substantial breakfast to get you going on game day. That’s exactly what this Banana-Maple French Toast is. Substantial. I used a hearty, whole grain bread with fresh eggs, rich cream and a splash of maple syrup. Just a great Fall morning breakfast.

How to Make Banana Maple French Toast

Whole grain bread for Banana-Maple French toast

For this French toast, I recommend a good bakery quality, sturdy whole grain bread. It will absorb the egg mixture without turning to mush like a softer bread might.

Egg mixture for Banana-Maple French toast

Combine your eggs, cream, syrup, vanilla and salt in a flat, wide container large enough to accommodate a slice of bread. Beat it together with a fork or a whisk until it’s well combined. Dip the bread on one side for a few seconds, then turn and dip the second side for a few seconds.

Cooking Banana-Maple French toast

Cook on a griddle or heavy skillet coated with cooking spray. After the toast is brown on one side, flip and cook the second side until golden brown.

Assembling Banana-Maple French Toast

Top each serving with half a sliced banana and drizzle with maple syrup.

Enjoy!

  1. It’s been a long time since I made French toast and I love your healthy whole-grain version!

  2. I don’t think I can survive 1 week without french toast. The perfect breakfast will yield the perfect and productive week. Let’s start the day healthy and happy! Did I mention delicious too? Definitely! Love the fresh bananas on top! Thanks for sharing!

  3. How is it possible that someone as obsessed about bananas as me hasn’t thought of this before?!

    This combination is genius! Can you imagine this with a drizzle of ginger syrup, with some crushed nuts on top? And a light sprinkle of cinnamon!

  4. This looks absolutely delicious. I love anything banana/maple flavored…reminds me of bananas foster, but as french toast :)

  5. You’ve reminded me it’s been too long since I’ve had or made French toast. Now I’m inspired to make tomorrow instead of waffles. This looks wonderful:)

  6. YUM, I love french toast….and I’m a pure maple syrup girl all the way…grew up with it and can’t eat anything else but!

    1. I haven’t always liked maple syrup, Shelby, but I’m learning to. I grew up with cane syrup. Quite a different flavor all together.

  7. I haven’t made French Toast in so long…I am feeling the love now! The colder it gets here, the more I will prepare big breakfasts (whether we need them or not!). Enjoy your weekend!
