Sweet Mornings – Banana Breakfast Sandwiches


Banana breakfast sandwiches – yum! As expressed in a previous post, I’m telling you again that I really love Tyler Florence’s baby food book, Start Fresh, because that’s exactly where I got this recipe!! The book is not just about purees… it also features recipes for the whole family too : ) There was no stopping me from making these banana breakfast sandwiches this past Sunday. They are totally delicious and pretty darn filling to say the least. The only thing I did differently in the recipe was use actual slices from a french loaf (instead of sliced bread) and maple syrup rather than honey. Anyway, if you’re looking for a different way to serve french toast, this is a great recipe!

Banana Breakfast Sandwiches
2 Bananas cut in half lengthwise
4 slices french bread
2 eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt
1 tablespoon butter
maple syrup
confectioner’s sugar


In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Soak the french bread in the mixture for a few minutes or until the bread is saturated. Melt the butter in a large pan and place two pieces of bread down until slightly browned. Turn over and then arrange bananas over the top. Add the other slice of bread and then flip the sandwiches. Use a heavy pan or a lid to press the sandwiches down to make them more like a panini. Brown each side of the sandwich. When both sides are golden, remove and add more butter, maple syrup and powdered sugar.

    Love love love your blog. It is sweet and charming just like the name. I’m one of your newer subscribers. Thanks for sharing this recipe, which I’ll have to wait a bit before I can serve my child. I have a 4 month old who has been on solids a couple of weeks already and I love to cook. Can’t wait to get my copy of that cook book. Keep up your awesomeness!

    This was yummy! I had to cook a bit longer (could be because of my elevation here in Ecuador) but my hubby loved it! Thanks!

    Great recipe! …so excited to try it this weekend! Look into baby led weaning instead of purees for your little one. Tried it with ours and it is really a fantastic method.

    I thought the instructions for it sounded a little strange, so I used one of the two that I had already browned for the top, instead of putting on the remaining ones, especially since someone else had already commented they came out mushy in the middle. I liked the way they came out. It made five slices of French toast, but I just gave the extra piece to my almost-underweight fiance. Just a teaspoon of real maple, and I was good to go 😀
