Banana bread French toast is a fun way to repurpose leftovers into breakfast or brunch! Topped with syrup, it’s a rich and decadent treat.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 4 slices banana bread, 3/4-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon butter, for cooking
  • Banana slices and chopped pecans, for garnish
  • Maple syrup, for serving


  1. In a wide shallow bowl or container, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and kosher salt.
  2. Preheat a griddle over medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon butter. Soak each side of 4 slices of bread in the egg mixture about 30 seconds per side until it becomes saturated. Place the bread on the hot skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until browned.
  3. Repeat with the remaining butter and 4 slices bread. Serve immediately with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
