There are just so many A’s in banana. So many. It’s confusing. And I have to sound it out every time. Sad, but true.

So I got this idea from the ever amazing Jessica at How Sweet It Is. Her blog posts come straight to my email so I’m greeted every morning with food I can’t consume. But her photography is unbelievable. What I would give to spend a day in her sugar jar. That sounded weird, but picture it. You can’t act like that wouldn’t be cool. And smell really good.

Anywho, I want to be just like her and as soon as I saw her post of banana (just sounded it out again) bread french toast, I HAD to make my own version. Twice. In two days. Laura and I ate it too fast on a Saturday night while we watched Bourne Supremacy and Bodyguard so I couldn’t snap any pictures. Wow, we’re single. Totes worth it though. I also had 2 non-paleo people say they LOVED it and my friend Sergio tell me to shut up when I asked him how it was. He stared at me with pure happiness in his eyes.

So this was cool. Laura and I went on a date for 5280 week at Fogo de Chao which is a brazilian restaurant in Denver. We don’t get asked on dates so we just take each other out…and pay for ourselves. Cool. Anyways. Ummmm holy meat. Just so much meat. Which was awesome. And the best part of it all was our server spilt a sangria on me (a trip from another patron occurred) and he felt soooooo bad. So bad. This poor adorable little man looked like he was going to cry because he was so embarrassed. I seriously didn’t care. It got in my hair. He obviously doesn’t know how disgusting my hair usually is because Laura and I got free sangrias AND desserts. Holy sugar overload. I ate flan and some kind of creamy dessert that tasted like melted ice cream. OH HELLS YEAH. I immediately was coughing up mucus after dinner and had a food child growing, making a home. I’m grossed out by myself from that last sentence. But it’s the sad sad truth.

Just to end this conversation, if you don’t ever try this recipe, your life WILL NOT be complete. If you want to win a man or woman over, make this dish. If you want to convert someone to paleo, make this dish. And if you want to cry tears into your food, make this dish. I don’t lie. Only 9 times out of 10 am I lying. Kidding…or am I? But you could just make the banana bread, make banana bread muffins, really whatever you want to do! Opportunities are endless in this paleo world!

Banana Bread French Toast

5 from 109 reviews

  • Yield: 2-4 1x



For the bread

  • 3 medium bananas (you want them brown and spotty)
  • 1.5 cups roasted unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup almond meal/flour
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

For the french toast


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pull out your handy dandy food processor. It will make life soooo much easier. Add your cashews to the food processor to grind down.
  3. Once your get a fine cashew meal, add your walnut oil while your food processor is still on until you get a cashew butter.
  4. Then peel your bananas, roughly break them up, and add to your food processor with your cashews. Turn your food processor on and let combine for a minute or so until you have a soupy paste.
  5. Now in a large bowl, whisk your eggs, then add your cashew/banana mixture along with almond meal/flour, baking soda and powder, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Mix to combine until you get a batter.
  6. Grease a loaf pan with some coconut oil. I used a loaf pan that was 9.3×5.2 inches (weird numbers) and it worked well. You could use smaller for taller loaf of bread, just may cook differently.
  7. Pour batter into your greased loaf pan. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until bread is cooked through and the top of your loaf has a bit of a “crisp” to it.
  8. Let bread cool for about 10 minutes.
  9. When banana bread is cooled, whisk together your french toast ingredients (minus the coconut oil) in a shallow bowl.
  10. Heat up a skillet or griddle and add your coconut oil to it.
  11. Cut your bread into 1/2-1 inch slices, dip them in your egg mixture on both sides, then place on griddle to cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  12. Top french toast off with slice bananas, maple syrup or honey, and a touch of cinnamon.
  13. Pure brilliance. Consume. Try to go slow. It is epic.
