I’m a big fan of getting kids in the kitchen, and summers and weekends are the optimal times to do just that. So, today I’m sharing a recipe that’s perfect to get your kids cooking—Peanut Butter Banana Stuffed French Toast. What’s that, you don’t have kids? Or just want to make this yourself? Go for it! This is a winner for yummy breakfast recipe lovers, regardless of age.

Sure, french toast is fun, but I found that stuffing it with peanut butter & banana ups the ante. The peanut butter & banana get all warm and gooey when enclosed in two pieces of toasted bread … then you top it with some berries and warm maple syrup. Yum! I know you can just imagine how tasty this is. So let’s get to it—but first, let me offer some suggestions on getting your kids involved with this recipe.

Having Your Kids Help Cook

As a rule, there are some general thoughts to ages and abilities that I cover in Camp Kitchen, a week-long cooking camp that you do at home on your own time with your kids. For example:

  • Kids 3 and under are perfectly capable of helping get out ingredients, scooping and dumping, stirring, and simply being around you while cooking.
  • Ages 3-5 bring on new opportunities, including setting the table and washing fruits and vegetables.
  • As kids get older, learning to read and follow directions and making measurements enter in.

I’m a big believer in teaching kids to cook. They say that healthy eating begins with cooking at home. Why not help get them started early?!

Ingredients Needed for Peanut Butter Banana Stuffed French Toast

  • 2 pieces whole wheat bread
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • splash of milk
  • dash of cinnamon
  • berries to top French toast
  • maple syrup

Easy substitutions for this kid-friendly recipe:

  • Make it gluten-free by using gluten-free bread in lieu of whole wheat bread
  • Can’t have nuts? Sub Sun-butter to make it nut-free.
  • Change this up slightly by using a combo of cream cheese and jelly instead of PB & banana.

  1. This looks like a great recipe. Has anyone tried it with sprouted bread, like Ezekiel? I’m thinking that might make it a bit healthier vs. whole wheat bread, but I’m wondering if the texture / density of the sprouted bread would ruin the recipe.

    Thanks!

  2. what a fun recipe, love it, thank you and good choice too – whole wheat bread – because why not since even if you don’t like the taste of it, it won’t be noticed and the fiber is important!

  3. This looks looks amazing! I bet a few dark chocolate chips would be awesome. I’m currently obsessed with eating Cinnamon French toast with caramelised apples and I bet this would be great with apples instead of bananas too.

  4. Looks yummy. I would definitely only serve/eat half, a whole sandwich is just way to much. Instead of berries only as a side(the berries and bananas makes for even more sugar, even fruit sugar counts as sugar and can raise blood sugar to high if not balanced out with protein and fat,even for nondiabetics) I would serve some pastured bacon or pastured sausage to have extra protein to balance out all the sugar and carbs.
