Peanut butter and banana is a classic combo, but these french toast-style roll-ups bring the typical combo to the next level! The bread rolls are dipped into a cinnamon batter and pan-fried for a crisp coated, banana filled treat!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these peanut butter and banana roll-ups:

Ingredients to make peanut butter and banana French toast rollups. See recipe card for detailed ingredient quantities.
  • Bread: I used whole wheat bread in this recipe, but you may use any type of sandwich bread.
  • Nut Butter/Seed Butter: Adds healthy fats and flavor to this recipe.
  • Banana: The main source of sweetness in this recipe. Use a banana that is ripe, but not overripe. An overripe banana may be too soft and difficult to work with for these roll-ups.
  • Egg: Used to firm up the liquids in the bread.
  • Milk: Used to add creaminess to the French toast batter.
  • Cinnamon: Warm spice that adds flavor the the batter.
  • Vanilla Extract: Used to enhance the natural sweetness of the roll-ups.
  • Butter (for pan-frying)

PROCESS

  1. Remove the crust from the slices of bread and roll out flat using a rolling pin. 
  2. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on each slice.
  3. Add ½ of a banana to one end and roll into a log. Pinch the ends to seal closed.
  4. Whisk together the egg, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla extract to form the batter.
  5. Quickly dip the roll-ups into the batter until all sides are coated. Shake off the excess batter.
  6. Melt butter on a pan and cook roll-ups until all sides are brown. Serve whole or slice into pieces!

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Banana: The banana may be replaced with other fruits. Check out these strawberry cheesecake French toast roll-ups!
  • Peanut butter: The peanut butter may be replaced with any other nut butter or seed-based butter.
  • You may also serve the roll-ups as is without dipping them into the batter!

RECIPE NOTES

  • Use a bread that is easy to roll out and large enough to wrap around the banana when rolled out. Some types of bread break apart easily and would not be ideal for this recipe.
  • Do not use a banana that is overripe. This will result in squishy roll-ups that will break apart easily and will be difficult to slice.
  • Make sure to appropriately serve the roll-ups in accordance with your baby’s age. The coin slices may not be ideal for a younger baby. For a younger baby, you may quarter the coin slices.
  • These roll-ups can be customized with any fillings! Jams, berries, and other spreads are great alternatives.
