Paleo French Toast

So what a week it was.  Sometimes I wish I was a caveman, just so I wouldn’t have to worry about paying for car repairs when they are completely unnecessary.  By unnecessary I mean for my power steering rack and pinion system to break on a car with 70,000 miles and cost me $1500 to fix.  I legitimately cried and could not stop the emotional down turn.  I just had all these extravagant gift ideas for friends and families and even though I know gifts don’t matter, it hurts my heart to not be able to do what I wanted.  Sorry, I am done whining now it was just frustrating and I had to share with someone, so I figured why not all of you.  The good news is my brother came and spent the weekend with me and I had a blast.  I even did a improtu photo shoot with him and it was awesome, you can see the pictures HERE.  I took some much needed time to do some family bonding and relax as well as get him to eat some paleo food.  So for that, you can thank him for this recipe, since I did make it for him.  Oh and I almost forgot that Tropical Traditions is having Free Shipping until Dec 10th at midnight.  Follow this LINK and use the code 112121 at checkout.

Paleo French Toast

I wasn’t planning on posting this recipe until tomorrow but I felt the urge (demands on Facebook) to type it right now so please forgive the extra amount of spaz in this post.  I know I am all over the place haha.  Well I am aware that this recipe is not the most original thing in the world, and it takes some prep work in making my banana bread, but I GUARANTEE you that it will be worth every single bite.  I baked two loaves of my bread just so I could have one on hand in the refrigerator for a few days to whip this recipe up.  Between this and my Paleo Pancakes, my breakfasts are set for the rest of my life.

Do me a favor, let me know in the comments how you like this and if you made any variations.  I would love to try out for myself what you all recommend.  If it is delicious I will add it into the recipe for others to try.

  1. I first tried your banana bread recipe a couple of weeks ago and then I came across this recipe….wow!! It was amazing!! This is definitely going to become on of my breakfast staples. So far every recipe of yours I have tried has been great and thank you for the weekly meal plans as well it really helps. Thank you!

  2. Just made this for the boyfriend this morning, and he loved it! I made it with plain coconut bread because I didn’t have everything to make the banana bread, but although he’s a sugar junkie, he gave his approval :D

  3. I made the banana bread yesterday, and it was fabulous, but today I made the french toast and it changed my life. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but it was really, really good. And the crazy thing is, I didn’t really care for french toast before I went paleo….. go figure. Thanks for all of your awesome recipes!

  4. I have made this french toast a few times; we LOVE it! Last night I changed it up a bit and had to share. Bacon Stuffed Banana Bread French Toast is our latest treat obsession! I drew inspiration from your chocolate bacon banana sandwiches :) I sliced the bread, spread almond butter on every slice, placed 2 slices of bacon on half the slices, sandwiched everything together, dipped in a mix of egg, almond milk, cinnamon, cooked in bacon fat til golden. I’m certain I don’t have to tell you how amazing this was! Thank you!!

  5. So, I just found your website/BLOG and it is one of the most awesome, complete useful tools I have run across, in a very long time. I am thoroughly impressed. New to the world of the Paleo lifestyle, THANK YOU for your insights and all the hard work you do, not to mention, the oh-so-yummy food ideas. I actually plan my weekly meals using this site….i digress just a bit because the original reason I “stopped” by, was to leave a comment about your Paleo Banana Bread which, is the bomb-diggity! Love, love, love it. I just wish the bread would stay around longer than a day. I find I need to make a a few loaves just so I can have one for myself. Thank you for Civilized Caveman site and thank you for everything you do for our Country. I work for the Marines and love my job everyday. Semper Fi!

  6. Wow! Your photos are beautiful and the recipe looks amazing! I have not had French Toast in years… will absolutely try soon. Thanks for sharing!

  7. First off, thanks for your most EXCELLENT website and a whole new way of eating. I’m still trying to figure out just what are those inflammation causing foods, and it’s a process of elimination, right? I get a LOT of recipes from Pinterest when I type in grain free in the search and most of the time I get pointed to your site. I have had a lot of success with your recipes and my daughter (14) turns her nose at my “healthy” stuff, but she seems to have no problem eating up everything I make. : )
    Now, for the banana bread…I had every intention of making the french toast, but silly me, I only made one loaf and it was gone before breakfast the next day. We are all about chocolate here, so I make cocoa powder/coconut oil/agave chocolate chips to throw in to the bread. MMMMMMMM!

    Keep up the good work!

      1. Thanks so much George! Will the recipe still work without the baking powder? I just don’t want anything coming in between me and this deliciousness?

        1. Sorry… I replied on the French toast page instead of the original banana bread page! I waa the one who asked about an aftertaste because I may have added too much homemade baking powder! See how anxious I am to make sure nothing gets in the way of me eating this bread! :)

  8. Holy this is good! I seriously ate 1 whole loaf in less than 24hrs :) (not kidding). I made it with sunflowerseed butter and blueberries and it was amazing but the sunflower seed butter mixed with baking soda and powder causes a chemical reaction to turn the banana bread shades of green and blue so don’t throw it out when it comes out of the oven blue lol. (I know this was not the blueberries because I made it once without them and had the same result)

    I also made the french toast and am glad to say that it was amazing too.

  9. I made the bread exactly according to the recipe with two exceptions, and the bread fell apart taking it out of the pan, and when cutting it! The two things were: I used a ceramic bread pan instead of glass, but still baked it for 55 minutes, and when mixing, I didn’t mix the wet ingredients first but put it all in my KitchenAid together. I used coconut oil to grease the pan. Anyone know what might have happened? Maybe I didn’t let it cool enough? It just seemed a little more dry and crumbly than I would have thought. Hope someone can help – I’d love this to work for me!

  10. Dear George! I am hereby declaring my love for you….well, your recepies mostly, though I’m sure you are a great guy;)
    I made the banana bread, and it is fantastic. But this french toast thing blew me away! Just finished the best breakfast I’ve had in ages. I went overboard with grass fed butter (costs a fortune in Norway) and it was SO worth it! Thank you!!

  11. I made the banana bread and it is awesome! Best Paleo bread I’ve ever had! I’m making this the french toast for my kids this morning. Thanks for your awesome recipes.

  12. I made a loaf of this bread yesterday and then french toast his morning for breakfast. Seriously, this is life changing haha! It was so amazingly delicious that I would choose this over “regular” french toast any day.

  13. We’ve just start our paleo journey this month in preparation of starting a whole30 in January, but I was looking for a treat for Christmas morning. This is TOTALLY it! I’m thinking chocolate banana bread will satisfy my sweet tooth. Thanks for all of the great recipes! I LOVE to cook (and love pasta and pizza like crazy) so I’ve been hesitant to change. So far though, everything I’ve made that is paleo has been AMAZING, so I’m positive we can stick with this for life!

  14. I made your banana bread and French toast and am SO happy to report that my 11 y/o son, who I have such a hard time convincing him of the dangers of processed food (GMO’s, etc…) just gobbled up two servings!! Thank you so much for sharing your recipes!! While there are a plethora of great Paleo recipes on the web, I still find it so hard to please my son, who would rather eat his favorite Mexican food, (complete with GMO tortillas and GMO fed beef) Doritos or whatever horrible processed foods his friends (and dad) are eating….it’s just feels so nice to have him actually like something I made….I just keep trying….and hope one day he’ll understand that I’m only looking out for his best health!

  15. The secret ingredient to awesome pancakes and french toast is apple pie spice in place of or in addition to cinnamon. Try it. I swear it rocks!

    Also, “So Delicious” makes coconut milk egg nog (not completely paleo, but a yummy little treat for the holidays). Try making your pancakes or french toast egg wash with the coconut milk egg nog. Yup. It’s good.

  16. Too funny!! I actually did this with the banana bread I made last week. Was it last week? Well, whenever I made your banana bread, I also made French toast with it. It turned out amazing as well!! Did I mention that in my rave about the banana bad? Hmm… Well, I guess great minds think alike! Thank you for all that you do for us!!

  17. Why does it look like there are strawberries inside your bread in the photo? It looks heavenly. . . guess I need to make some and we can enjoy this for breakfast soon!

  18. So, you don’t leave it out a day to dry or anything? I always thought you weren’t supposed to use fresh bread for french toast? :)

  19. I have never made your banana bread, but it looks easy enough and I have all the ingredients on hand…my bananas are still a little green, though…so I might wait another day or two…but I am definitely trying out the banana bread and then this yummy looking french toast by this weekend! :)

  20. I’m planning to make this for the family on Christmas morning! I always add a little fresh grated nutmeg and vanilla to my egg mixture for french toast so I’ll do that on this one as well. It adds a little extra “something.” :-) I CANNOT WAIT!

  21. Oh my!! Just made two loaves of ur banana bread today. Now I know what I am having for breakfast. I am sure this will be fantabulous with bacon on the side. ;) Banana bread freezes well by the way (tho rarely lasts long enough to make it to the freezer).
