Our cleaned-up version of this classic breakfast dish uses healthy alternatives for conventional ingredients, all without skimping on taste! For example, whole-wheat baguette makes up the foundation of this French toast instead of white bread. This nutritious substitute carries more fiber and vitamins than its refined white flour counterpart. Meanwhile, our version calls for almond milk instead of regular milk, which shaves off a chunk of calories and fat.

Instead of butter, our Banana Pecan French Toast uses coconut oil. This superfood carries antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, and it tastes amazing as well! Finally, instead of using refined or processed sugars, our recipe calls for just one tablespoon of coconut sugar. This more nutritious sweetener helps keep things light and healthy.

To make this French toast, start by arranging the baguette slices on the bottom of your slow cooker. Next, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, coconut sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, and pour this scrumptious custard over your baguette slices. Coat the banana slices in lemon juice and place them on top of your baguette inside of the slow cooker.

Add the melted coconut oil drizzle to the slow cooker, along with a sprinkle of pecans. Cover the slow cooker and, depending on your schedule, cook this decadent French toast on high for 2 to 3 hours, or low for 4 to 5 hours.

You’ll know your French toast is done when bread begins to turn golden brown around the edges.

  1. I am assuming that the 1/2 pecans means a 1/2 cup. I just want to be sure. Sounds like a great dessert as well as a breakfast treat.

    1. Michelle, We have never used trivia, so I’m not sure. The white sugar ratio and coconut sugar would be the same, if you know how to convert to trivia.

      1. I made it the night before and set my crockpot timer so that it would be ready for breakfast the next morning, it turned out great. I didn’t have any problem with it being too soggy.

        I also substituted a can of coconut milk for the almond milk to give it a creamier texture.

        I’ll definitely make again. I didn’t have any cooking spray, because we don’t use it. I tried coating my crockpot with coconut oil, but the bread did end up sticking pretty bad in some places. Maybe next time I’ll try lining with parchment paper.

        1. So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Ashton! Love that you used coconut milk instead of almond. Coconut milk is my personal favorite.
