Banana toast is a wonderful soft finger food for babies and toddlers and helps to keep breakfast interesting with different tastes and textures.
Tips: some people find this recipe works perfectly, while others say it is too mushy. Remember this is a finger food for babies so it is meant to be very soft. We have a few tips below from people who have used this recipe time and time again – I hope this helps.
- Try mashing the banana with a fork on a board first, then put it in a bowl and add the milk, mixing and mashing as you go until the mixture is smooth. Or even blend it. Make sure the pan is hot when you start to cook. And don’t soak the bread for too long.
- This is meant to be on the soggier side (like french toast) but not so much that it disintegrates. I suggest just dipping in the mixture rather than soaking and using a non-stick pan. Thicker cut bread is better too as really soft thin bread will tend to fall apart.
Nutrition Note: An egg free version of French toast, with the delicious sweetness of banana.
