At our house, we have a tradition we like to call "“Breakfast Fridays.” That’s where we have breakfast food for dinner and my darling son gets to stay up late with daddy watching TV and eating snacks until they both fall asleep on the couch. LOL. He looks forward to this bonding time with his dad every week. And it gives mommy some much needed “me time” on a Friday night to catch up on my Netflix, blog, or finish reading that novel on my nightstand that I keep telling myself I’m going to finish.
Well, this past Friday we had Dairy-free/ Egg-free Banana French toast. Wait? You can make French toast without eggs? Yes!!!! You can! And I’m gonna show you how.
Dairy-free/Egg-free Banana French Toast-makes about 4 slices
- “safe” bread (I just used 4 slices of a "safe" whole wheat sandwich bread)
- ¼ cup of banana puree ( I mashed mine with a fork, but you can totally use a blender)
- ¼ cup non-dairy milk (we use Almond milk in our house)
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix together the banana puree, non-dairy milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a dish flat and wide enough for dipping the bread. Coat each side of a piece of bread by dipping into the mixture. Now, be careful with this process. Dip one side, then flip the bread immediately to dip the other side. Don’t allow the bread to sit in the mixture. If you do, it will be a soggy mess and just won’t cook up right. Next, brown each side of the bread slices in a medium-high skillet. About 3 minutes per side. Flip them over a few times while they're browning to prevent burning on either side.
Next transfer the slices to a 400 degree oven to finish cooking. Bake about 10 mins., flipping halfway through.
I topped ours with some powdered sugar, sliced strawberries and bananas, and warm maple syrup.
