Bananas and Nutella Combine for the Ultimate French Toast Experience

Nutella and Banana French Toast Recipe

Certain mornings call for the taste of something sweet, and when it comes to making satisfying recipes that can instantly perk up those sitting around the breakfast table, French toast is tough to beat — that is until Nutella gets involved. Yet even a dish as decadent as Nutella-stuffed French toast can be enhanced, and thinly sliced bananas will do the trick with little effort required from aspiring home chefs.


  • 4 thick slices of bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 4 tablespoons of Nutella spread
  • 1 ripe banana, thinly sliced or mashed
  • Honey or maple syrup for serving
  • Cinnamon powder, chopped nuts, dark chocolate shavings and powdered sugar (optional for garnishing)


  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon powder.
  2. Spread two tablespoons of Nutella on one side of each slice of bread and then top two of them with thinly sliced or mashed bananas. Sandwich the slices together to make two Nutella and banana sandwiches.
  3. Dip each sandwich into the egg mixture, making sure both sides are coated well.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and melt one tablespoon of butter. Add the sandwiches and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown and the Nutella is melted.
  5. Remove the sandwiches from the pan and allow them to cool for a minute before cutting them into halves or quarters.
  6. Drizzle the sandwiches with honey or maple syrup and sprinkle them with cinnamon powder, chopped nuts, dark chocolate shavings and powdered sugar if desired.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy your sweet and comforting Nutella and banana French toast!
