Baked Banana French Toast Sticks

Written by COA Nutrition Team On March 25, 2022

Make a batch of these super yummy French Toast Sticks to share with the kids. It’s so much easier to bake French Toast, rather than standing by the stove flipping each slice, and the leftovers store so well for future meals!


  • 8 slices whole grain or sourdough sandwich bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 small very ripe banana (about ½ cup slices)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Maple syrup (or yogurt, nut butter or jam to serve, optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut each slice of bread into 4 sticks.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, banana, vanilla, and cinnamon to a blender. Blend until smooth. (Or, skip the blender and mash everything together in a bowl.)
  4. Dip each piece of bread into the batter, letting the excess drip off. Then place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes. Flip over and bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Serve warm with toppings or dips such as maple syrup, yogurt, nut butter, jam, or warmed frozen fruit.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
