French Toast

French toast takes me back to slow Saturday mornings sitting around the Esselstyn family table and the feel of powdered sugar on the roof of my mouth. Serve this deliciously healthy version of French toast with pure maple syrup and fresh fruit.

  • Prep Time 15 minutes
  • Cook Time 5 Minutes
  • Serves 2


1 banana, mashed

½ cup milk substitute of choice

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon cinnamon

4 to 6 slices whole grain bread or baguette slices



Combine banana, milk substitute, vanilla, and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.

Dip bread slices in mixture and cook in non-stick skillet on medium heat for 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.You can also bake these by putting them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and baking for 7 minutes on each side.

    Sounds so good! I like using stale bread for French toast sometimes, makes it really thick.

    I wonder how the texture would turn out if I dipped these in a little coconut flour, and then again the mixture.

    They look good!

    what temperature should my oven be at to bake these? I’m having a lot of trouble making these on stove top. They always turn out soggy. I think the oven would work better hopefully!

      I brown them in the skillet then place them in the toaster so they aren’t soggy 🙂

    I baked these at 375 or 400 degrees – use a hearty bread so they are not too mushy. Very good recipe!
