If you’re a fan of breakfast that’s sweet, indulgent, and bursting with flavor, then you’re in for a treat! This Banana Stuffed Crispy Peanut Butter French Toast is the perfect morning pick-me-up for those moments when you want to pamper yourself with something special.
The combination of creamy peanut butter, ripe bananas, and crispy French toast is simply irresistible. The best part? It’s designed for a single serving, so you can enjoy it all to yourself.
Would it sound obnoxious if I said this was the best french toast I’ve ever had?
Because it is, hands-down.
I completely lost interest in french toast for a while after watching this scene in Road Trip, but man am I glad I got over that revulsion… because this. Is. Amazing.
Creamy mashed banana is sandwiched between two slices of wicked good whole wheat bread, then the sandwich is soaked in a peanut butter “custard” and coated in crunchy Peanut Butter Puffins crumbs before being pan-fried to crispy golden-brown perfection.
A generous drizzle of maple syrup seals the deal.
My brain is already in overdrive thinking up variations on this absolutely delicious breakfast, so you can definitely expect to see more french toast posts in the near future!

1. Prepare the Banana Filling
Start by peeling the ripe banana and mashing it in a small bowl with a fork. Once you have a creamy consistency, add the peanut butter and mix well until you have a smooth banana-peanut butter filling.
2. Make the French Toast Sandwich
Take two slices of your favorite bread and spread the banana-peanut butter mixture evenly over one slice. Place the other slice of bread on top to create a sandwich.
3. Prepare the Egg Mixture
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the large egg, milk, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon. This mixture will be the custard for your French toast.
4. Dip and Coat
Carefully dip your banana-stuffed sandwich into the egg mixture, ensuring both sides are coated. Allow any excess mixture to drip off.
5. Fry to Perfection
Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add a small amount of butter or oil. Once hot, place your stuffed sandwich in the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
6. Serve and Enjoy
Transfer your Banana Stuffed Crispy Peanut Butter French Toast to a plate. You can drizzle some maple syrup or honey over the top for added sweetness if desired. Garnish with sliced strawberries or blueberries for a fresh touch.
7. Savor Every Bite
Take a moment to appreciate the crispy exterior giving way to the gooey, sweet, and nutty interior. Each bite is a harmonious blend of flavors and textures, making this breakfast a true treat for your taste buds.
