Welcome to thoughtful, organic beauty
Hello Joyous is an organic, plant-based, sustainable beauty brand here to bring more joy to your day.
Breakfast or brunch, this Coconut Banana French Toast is absolutely incredible—like, hands down one of my top fave recipes I’ve ever created. It also helps that I’m a huge French toast fan and brunch is my favourite meal, so when I created this dish I was very determined to make it as delicious as the traditional recipe.
I’m happy to report I succeeded! As we were enjoying the fruits of our labour eating this, I think I must have said to Walker at least ten times, “mmmm, this is SO GOOD.”
I’m really excited to share this recipe with you considering that you may have friends or family that can’t eat eggs due to food sensitives, or they choose not to because they are eating 100% plant-based.
Either way, even the meat-eaters will get on board with this amazing recipe because it’s so flavourful and all the textures in this French toast make it super memorable, even better than the original if I might be so bold to say!
I used Silver Hills Sprouted bread to make this recipe because I love the heartiness of it and it’s oh-so-good for my belly, too (easy peasy on my digestive system). I find sprouted bread so much easier to digest and I feel good giving it to my daughter. I’ve talked about this a lot in other posts so you can read all about it here in my cauli tacos (I used sprouted wraps), here is my mom’s legendary stuffing and most recently in my back to school sammies !
When you’re making the banana mixture you want it to be a paste-like texture that is easily spreadable. So, make sure to use ripe bananas for this recipe—they’ll be nice and sweet, too.
When cooking the French toast in the frying pan, be generous with the coconut oil on the pan so it doesn’t stick. That will give you a nicely caramelized texture, not burnt but incredibly flavourful.
Now the only decision you’ll need to make is what to top it with. The French toast all on its own is absolutely incredible (I realize I’ve already said “incredible” a few times now) but the toppings are the icing on the cake! I added a nice schlop of coconut yogurt.
Then I added some maple syrup. I love a super-rich maple flavour that stands out which is why I always use extra dark, real maple syrup.

In terms of how many it serves, that really depends how hungry you are! I find this recipe very filling, so I'm fine with 1 piece but my hubs will definitely eat 2 pieces. So it could serve 3 or 6 people depending on how hungry everyone is!
I love all the textures in this French toast from the crisp outside to the soft inside paired with coconut yogurt and warmed wild blueberries—I’m getting hungry look at these photos!
So, there you have it! A new and joyously delicious French toast that is totally plant-based and absolutely divine!
