Banana Bread French Toast Recipe
This banana bread French toast first came to life when I had half a banana bread loaf in the fridge, over-ripe bananas and a big tub of ricotta. It’s grain free so perfect for paleos and the addition of coconut flour and almond meal give it a beautiful texture. Banana bread is always a great way to use up over-ripe bananas. And this recipe is so delicious, you may want to have it for breakfast every day.

- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
