French Toast with Grilled Bananas


Growing up, I was never much of a waffle or pancake girl. I think it may have had something to do with the chalky mixes that we always bought. I adore my grain-free pancake and waffle recipes, but I will always be a French Toast girl if I have to chose between the three. Here’s an easy, dairy and grain free French Toast recipe for your weekend! You can use my sandwich bread recipe or any grain-free bread to make this french toast Paleo and SCD legal.

French Toast with Grilled Bananas

AUTHOR: Danielle Walker - AgainstAllGrain.com

SERVES: 8 slices



  1. Slice the loaf into 8 thick slices. The loaf doesn’t stand very tall, so for bigger pieces like in the photos, cut the loaf in half to make 2 squares, then slice into 8 slices lengthwise.
  2. In a shallow pan, whisk together the eggs, milk, spices, and vanilla.
  3. Heat a little coconut oil in skillet over medium0-high heat.
  4. Dip each slice in the batter letting it sit on each side for 30 seconds so the bread can soak up the mixture a bit.
  5. Pan fry each slice for 1 minute on each side, or until slightly browned and crispy on the outside. I like to press them down with a spatula to push some of the egg mixture out of the bread so they are not too soggy on the inside.
  6. Once you’ve cooked all of the slices, add the banana slices to the same pan and cook for a couple of minutes until they are caramelized on one side.
  7. Serve the french toast with the grilled bananas and drizzled with honey or maple syrup.

    What brand almond milk do you use?

    • Against All Grain

      I make my own, but my favorite store bought brand is the organic one from Whole Foods because it uses the least amount of additives.

    I’m assuming we’re using canned coconut milk (if you choose not to make your own), and not the product similar to “boxed” almond milk? I’m really looking forward to making this, I just want to get the ingredients right before I make my trip to the grocery store!

      Yes always canned, never boxed! check out my FAQ page for why

    Hi Danielle, how long can I store the batter in the fridge? Will it freeze well? I have a lot left over and don’t want to waste it
