Healthy Stuffed French Toast with Almond Butter & Banana

Healthy stuffed French toast features a banana and almond butter filling between two slices of whole grain bread. 

Happy Friiiidaaayy! Hope you’re excited for the weekend. Isaac’s birthday is Sunday so we have a weekend full of celebrations ahead. And who knows, maybe I’ll make him breakfast-in-bed French toast on Sunday morning. Healthy stuffed french toast with gooey almond butter and banana goodness, because why not?

Sounds like the perfect birthday breakfast to me! Or Valentine’s Day breakfast for that matter.

But honestly, you don’t have to be celebrating anything special to make this French toast. It’s not difficult at all to make (this is coming from the girl who had never made French toast before this recipe) and it’s filled with good-for you ingredients! The recipe makes four servings and each serving (without toppings) is less than 200 calories, low in sugar and loaded with healthy fats and protein. Not too shabby.

And if you’re worried about rushing around in the morning and not having time, I know for a fact that you can cook a batch of this French toast ahead of time and reheat a slice in the toaster oven the morning you want to eat it. Easy peasy! I made a batch last week and had a leftover piece for breakfast two days in a row. I actually loved the way it tasted from the toaster oven because the edges got a little crispy!

Description

A stuffed French toast recipe you can feel good about indulging in. It’s not only delicious, but healthy too!


Ingredients

  • 4 slices of whole grain bread (gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter
  • ¼ cup Almond Breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
  • coconut oil, for pan
  • maple syrup and fresh berries, for topping

Instructions

  1. Take your four slices of bread and create two almond butter and banana sandwiches. Each sandwich should have 1 Tablespoon of almond butter and a few banana slices.
  2. Whisk together almond milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and pour in a container large enough to soak the sandwiches. One at a time, soak sandwiches on both sides until they are nice and moist — about 10 seconds on each side.
  3. Pre-heat a non stick skillet on medium-high heat. Coat with coconut oil to prevent toast from sticking.
  4. Place sandwich in pan and cook for 4-5 minutes on until the bottom side is golden brown. Flip sandwich, press on sandwich with your spatula and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan and repeat the process with the second sandwich.
  5. Cut each sandwich in half diagonally to make 4 servings. Serve with fresh berries and a drizzle of maple syrup.

  1. I stumbled upon your site a few weeks ago and am loving it except for the sponsored post. I wish bloggers like yourself would only plug products if they truly believed in them, not because of being paid. If companies appreciate the support of their product, pass it along to your readers. More authenticity and transparency. Less advertising and commercialism.

  2. Finally a healthy version of the french toast. I’ve been feeling guilty about having french toast. Great how you were able to include so many healthy foods in one sandwich.

  3. French toast is awesome made with cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread! I love mind topped with almond butter and caramelized pears.

  4. Hi Brittany,

    Looks great:)! I am making this Saturday morning for breakfast. I love french toast and make it quite often. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Feb 8th is my brother’s birthday, Feb 11th my young son’s birthday and Feb 14th my sister in laws birthday! It’s interesting that Isaac and your birthday is just a week apart:) I know atleast 10 people whose birthdays are all in Feb, including my boss and colleague! Well, I can imagine how much this month means to you 🙂

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend:) hope your little pup is feeling well now!

  5. This looks delicious! I randomly stumbled upon your blog yesterday when I was looking for oatmeal ideas and your Pumpkin Protein Oatmeal with Egg Whites popped up. I made it last night after my evening work out and it immediately made me feel full! Not to mention, it was quite tasty. Can’t wait to check back here more for recipes as I continue my journey of clean eating. 🙂
