Paleo Banana Bread Made Into French Toast

This Recipe Makes The Perfect Breakfast in Bed

There’s nothing quite so charming as someone taking the time to serve you breakfast in bed. It’s the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion.

And while our banana bread makes the perfect star of the show on any breakfast tray, if you are as ambitious as we are, banana bread alone won’t be enough. So let’s raise the bar.

Start with our signature paleo banana bread recipe (which, we have to say is, pretty amazing on its own). It’s so delicious you would never know it contains ZERO gluten, dairy, or processed sugar! The recipe is also easy and versatile—it might just become your new weekly staple.

But transforming it into a one-of-a-kind French toast? Now we’re talking.

The result? The most decadent (and healthy) Banana Bread French Toast. It’s perfect for special occasions and weekend brunches, yet easy enough for every day.

How’s that for an added bonus?
