Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Roll Ups Recipe – whole wheat bread slices filled with peanut butter and bananas and fried French toast style. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
If you are looking for a quick and easy snack or lunch idea for your kids, I got you covered! These Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Roll-Ups are fun to make and eat and a healthier option since we are using whole wheat bread. In a true French toast fashion, I dipped them in beaten egg and milk before cooking. However, dipping these roll-ups on beaten egg is completely optional. You can just roll them up and toast up on all sides in a little bit of butter.
Either way, you will have crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside roll-ups that are bound to be a hit!
I stopped buying white sandwich bread last year and healthier and tastier substitutes. ALDI carries a variety of whole wheat breads that we like. The filling options for French Toast Roll Ups are pretty much unlimited. Check out the links below for more ideas! My kids are huge fans of peanut butter and banana combo so I tend to gravitate towards that. These roll ups disappeared so fast and were a huge hit!
Please note, you will need a soft sandwich bread for this recipe. It needs to be roll-able, if that makes sense. I also recommend chopping bananas into small pieces to make it easy to roll these up. Slices will cause the bread to tear.
Also, to avoid food waste, there is no need to cut the crust off to make these roll-ups. I tried both ways and both work just fine. Roll each slice of bread flat with a rolling pin (or a bottle of olive oil!), spread peanut butter and layer with banana pieces. Don’t be afraid to spread the peanut butter all the way to the edges. It will only help keeping the roll-ups together.
Serve these Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Roll-Ups lightly dusted with powdered sugar, drizzled with maple syrup or rolled in cinnamon sugar. These are a perfect after-school snack or a great addition to a brunch menu.
