Brunch is definitely my favourite meal and what better food to have at brunch time than french toast! In order to make this dish a bit lighter than the usually sugary, fried version, I used brown bread, for some fibre, coconut oil, for a lighter fry and a caramelised banana for a unique sweetness! This combination was so delicious that I just had to share the recipe with you guys just 1 hour after I ate what you see in the picture above! Without further ado here it is:-
CARAMELISED BANANA FRENCH TOAST
- 2 slices of wholegrain toast
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- A pinch of nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- A splash of milk
- Honey or maple syrup to drizzle (Optional)
- 1 pinch of salt (Optional)
Beat your egg and add your milk, salt and vanilla extract to the mixture.
Lay your slices of bread out on a plate and pour the egg mixture on them until they are soaked all the way through.
Add coconut oil to a heated pan and add your bread.
Leave for about 2-3 minutes, flip over to the other side and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
When ready, place them on your serving plate.
In the same pan, add a banana sliced in half. Sprinkle your cinnamon, extra vanilla essence and nutmeg on the banana.
Flip over to the other side after 1 minute and leave for a further minute.
When done, place your bananas on top, add your syrup, blueberries and enjoy!
I hope you liked this recipe and give it a try!
