Sunflower Butter Banana French Toast

Happy Friday, and welcome back for a third installment of Breakfast Feast Friday! If you’ve missed any prior weeks, you can find them here, and here.

First up, I have to brag about the little Bean. She’s been in Kindergarten for just over a month, and has made it in the ELITE M&Ms club! She’s pretty excited!

The M&Ms club is for anyone who can recognize all their letters, upper and lower case. She’s pretty spectacular. First person in Kindergarten this year in the M&Ms club…that’s right!

Moving on! I found this amazing recipe on Tina’s blog, Carrots ‘n’ Cake and knew I had make it for Breakfast Feast Friday this week, with a few adaptations! Yummy!

Sunflower Butter Banana French Toast

makes 2 servings

4 Slices of Bread

2 Eggs

2 Tbsp Milk (not pictured)

1/4 tsp real vanilla extract

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

3 Tbsp Sunflower Butter (any nut butter will work)

1 Banana (not pictured)

Maple Syrup (not pictured)

Pre-heat a non-stick skillet to med/high.

  1. Mix together eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl. (large enough to fit the bread in later)
  2. Slice the banana into thin rounds.
  3. Spread half the sunflower butter on one slice of bread and the other half on another slice.
  4. Place banana rounds evenly on top of sunflower butter.
  5. Make two sandwiches and dunk top and  bottom of each sandwich in the egg/milk mixture.


6. Grill on med/high, until golden brown, flip and repeat on the other side.


7. Cut in half, drizzle with maple syrup, and enjoy!

This turned out so well! It would be delicious with a side of grapefruit, raspberries, eggs or bacon too!

Happy Friday everyone! We’re headed to a wood-fired pizza party this evening…very exciting!

What are your weekend plans?
