For the french toast:

  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • ΒΌ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 bread slices (I used sourdough)
  • Optional: extra banana slices

For the candied pecans:

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • salt


To make the pecans:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix the pecans, syrup and a few sprinkles of salt together in a bowl. Pour the pecans onto your prepared baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer.
  • Bake for 6-7 minutes or until the pecans have slightly darkened. Allow the pecans to cool completely on the sheet before storing.

To make the french toast:

  • Preheat your griddle or saute pan.
  • In bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, egg, almond milk and cinnamon.
  • Once the griddle is hot, spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Take your bread slices and one at a time, dip both sides into your batter. Place the bread onto your hot griddle and cook for 2-3 minutes on both sides or until crispy.
  • Serve immediately with bananas slices, candied pecans and syrup!
