Banana Bread French Toast Bites
What do you do with bananas that no one wants to eat because they’re a little too soft and start to turn brown? I usually freeze them and put them in my smoothies or make banana bread out of them. It always makes me feel good when I don’t throw away food and we eat exactly what we buy.
Even with those good intentions, I found myself with leftover banana bread that was sitting uneaten for a little too long, which is how Banana Bread French Toast Bites came about. A quick breakfast with delicious results, and no leftovers! Success 🙂
Banana Bread French Toast Bites
- Leftover banana bread
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Cut bread into 2 inch pieces and set aside.
- Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow dish.
- Over medium-low heat, add butter to a skillet or griddle.
- Coat bread pieces with egg mixture and place on heated pan. Cook for about a minute or until the bread is golden brown, then turn to cook the second side.
- Serve hot with your favorite topping.

I’m also imaging these bites as a dessert. How about adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some Dulce de Leche topping!

I love weekends when I don’t have to be anywhere and I can sleep in late! Those are the days I enjoy making breakfast and sipping on several cups of coffee. What is your ideal weekend schedule?
My friend at Marion at Life Tastes Good has another great way to make French toast, Madison’s Angel Food Cake French Toast recipe looks delicious!
I’m loving these little bites of goodness! So unique and tasty looking, thanks for sharing this one!
Thank you for the nice compliment, Dan!
Your photos in this post are super! Seems like you’re really getting a feel for how you want things to look. 🙂 I was told recently that my photos were sort of gangsta. Like in your face without being all up in your face. It was meant as a compliment and it made me laugh.
I love french toast bites!!! I used leftover cream cheese banana bread last year for bread pudding which was great but NOW I have to hope I have some leftover banana bread! These look super, Sandra!
haha! I love your gangsta photos! That is so funny. I really wish I could say, yay, I got this picture thing down, but I don’t. Not at all! Natural lighting in my house is terrible, but I did find one spot that might change things 🙂 Hearing compliments encourages me to keep at it though, so thank you!! The bites are yum! Might be worth it to make an extra loaf just to have french toast with it!
I too love the bite-size idea.
This would be perfect for little ones with tiny hands and fingers too 😉
I would just hate for such yummy bread to go to waste 🙂
🙂 Thanks Joanne!
I am loving this idea. You have a fantastic bread and then you make it even better by making it into a french toast bites. How fun! Take Care, BAM
I love little bites, even if I eat a lot of them and it ends up being a really big piece 😉
