Bananas Foster French Toast (paleo, gluten free, refined sugar free)

Categories Food

Bananas Foster French Toast is the brunch obsession I never knew I needed in my life. Why I’ve been sleeping on french toast, I have no idea. But now that we’ve been reunited, it’s a love affair for the ages. So let’s talk about how to make your new paleo friendly brunch option so we can be obsessed together (but at least 6 ft. apart because ya know, rules).

As per usual, I’ve created this recipe as a single serving. However, it could easily be adapted for more people. It could also be made with regular bread if you’re able to tolerate gluten. Personally, I love using my favorites from base culture. Finding a good paleo bread can be challenging because they don’t always absorb the egg in the same way. But I’ve had great luck with them! 

To make sure that everything times out well and that I’m minimizing on the amount of dishes I have to do, I always start with the french toast before adding the bananas into the mix. I’ve also opted for the alcohol free version of bananas foster for today’s brunch. But I’ll happily take a mimosa or a latte please!

Recipe Notes

*Depending on the bread you use, it might need a little longer to absorb the mix. I soaked mine for 2-3 minutes per side.

**I use my Our Place Always Pan. It's the perfect size and everything cooks evenly. Plus, it's non-toxic. WSS readers get $10 off with code: SAVVY10
