Healthy Banana French Toast

Healthy Banana French Toast

We used to call this stuff "eggy bread" and we used to love it, so we decided to make a healthier vegan version using banana. It's a really simple technique but like lots of vegan innovation, it's not very obvious.
If you're after a good weekend breakfast idea that's special but quite healthy, this Banana French Toast could be the one for you!

This recipe is from our cookbook: BOSH! Healthy Vegan

Happy cooking! Henry and Ian x



For The French Toast

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 250ml unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1½ tsp plain flour
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 4 slices wholemeal bread

For The Berry Syrup

  • 400g mixed frozen berries
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

To Serve

  • 1 small, ripe banana
  • 4 tbsp plant-based yoghurt
  • 10-12 fresh berries
  • 1 tbsp flaked coconut


  1. 1.

    First, make the french toast. Peel and mash the banana. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the bread!) and mix well to combine. Lay the bread slices in the mixture for 15 seconds or so, turning it so it soaks through. Place them on a lined baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until golden, turning halfway through.

  2. 2.

    Now, make the berry syrup. Put the small saucepan over a medium heat. Add the berries, water and maple syrup and simmer for 15-20 minutes until all the liquid has reduced, stirring regularly. Halfway through cooking, gently mash the fruit with the back of a spoon.

  3. 3.

    Time to serve! Peel and slice the remaining banana. Plate up the toast, top with berry syrup, banana slices, yoghurt, fresh berries and coconut flakes.
