AKA Monkey French Toast - Sugar Free Option

"Peanut Butter Banana Stuffed French Toast AKA "Monkey French Toast" is a unique and delicious recipe that I created for my kids! Serve it hot with butter and syrup!"

A great easy recipe kids can learn to make! My son would love to help in the kitchen when he was really little, and this was one of the first things I taught him. He would always make the sounds of a monkey when peeling a banana, and of course make the hand gestures... you know the one under the arm and on the head while make monkey noises... yeah that one! Hence the name Monkey French Toast was born and that's how he asked for it every time.

Peanut Butter Banana Stuffed French Toast

AKA Monkey French Toast

Servings – 2 Prep Time – 10 Minutes Cook Time – 15 Minutes


  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk or cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 4 tablespoons creamy or chunky peanut butter, Jiff is what I love but it's your preference

  • 8 slices bread, wheat, white brioche, sweet, potato or anything you like - I like wheat to add fiber

  • 2 small bananas, sliced

  • 4 tablespoons butter, Land O Lakes is my personal favorite

  • maple syrup, warmed - I use sugar free from Maple Grove Farms

  • powdered sugar for dusting, optional


Lightly beat eggs, milk or cream and vanilla together in a shallow bowl.

Lay out slices of bread and spread peanut butter on top of each slice of bread, equally.

Arrange 1 1/2 of the banana slices on top of the peanut butter on four of the bread slices; place the other slice of bread, peanut butter-side down, on top of the banana to make a sandwich.

Heat a large skillet on medium heat; melt 2 tablespoons of butter for the first two sandwiches.

Dip sandwich into egg mixture until well coated; transfer into the heated skillet. Repeat with the second sandwich.

Cook until golden brown on one side, about 2 to 3 minutes; flip and continue cooking until other side is browned, about 2 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining two sandwiches.

Serve hot with warm maple syrup, a dusting of confectioners sugar and slices of fresh banana slices.


You can also make these in the little sandwich maker press if you have one. Just pre-heat according to the instructions your machine came with, butter or spray each side with cooking spray or bakers joy. Place sandwich on press and then close the lid; cook according to your machines instructions.
