Caramelized Bananas top off these Banana Bread French Toast Bites for a scrumptious and impressive brunch treat everyone will go bananas for!


  1. Slice bread into 7 or 8 (1-inch) thick slices and then each of those slices into 4 cubes.
  2. Beat eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl until well combined and slightly fluffy. Whisk in milk and then transfer the egg mixture to a shallow dish.
  3. Whisk together 2 tablespoons sugar with 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for the cinnamon sugar coating. Place in a shallow dish.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons butter to a large griddle or skillet and heat over medium heat.
  5. Give each banana bread cube a quick dip in the egg mixture and then transfer to the heated griddle for cooking, be sure to let any excess egg mixture drip back into the shallow dish.
  6. Sauté each bite until golden brown and slightly crisp on all sides, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Immediately transfer each cooked bite to the cinnamon sugar dish and roll to coat.
  8. Transfer the coated Banana Bread French Toast Bites to a baking sheet and keep in a 200°F warming oven to keep warm while you cook the remaining bites or until ready to serve.
  9. Once all of the bites are cooked, add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet and place the banana slices in a single layer. Let caramelize on each side, flipping with a fork or small spatula.
  10. Sprinkle the banana bread French toast bites with powdered sugar and then place a caramelized banana on a toothpick and add a banana bread French toast bite to it for serving.
  11. Serve warm with maple syrup to dunk them in.


Keep French Toast Bites warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve. This allows you to take your time prepping your bites and serve them up hot!
