Fried Banana Toast

Pan-fried bananas taste decadent but are so simple to prepare. In this recipe I used sunflower butter and sprinkled some sunflower seeds over for a little extra crunch.

Makes 2 servings


  • Avocado oil or olive oil
  • 2 bananas, sliced in half lengthwise
  • 2 slices of your favorite wholegrain bread
  • 2 tablespoons nut butter
  • Maple syrup for drizzling (optional)
  • Cocoa powder or cinnamon for dusting



  1. Coat a nonstick pan with a small amount of oil and place over medium heat.
  2. When heated, place bananas in pan and cook both sides until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side, turning carefully.
  3. Toast the bread and place onto a plate. Spread each slice with a tablespoon of nut butter, top with 2 slices of banana.  Drizzle with maple syrup (if desired) and sprinkle with cocoa powder or cinnamon.
