Thank you for your question. Please rate my answer positively once I have answers your question.
If you have been in the UK on an EEA family permit then what you need to do is apply for permanent residency before you apply for British Citizenship. The permenent residency will confirm your residency in the UK for 5 years after which you will be able to apply for a British Passport.
To apply for permanent residency you will need to use form EEA 3, please see following link on how to apply:

Can I apply from now or I need to wait until November?
You would need to have completed 5 years residency in the UK before apply, therefore you should wait until november before submitting the application. The rules state as follows:
Eligibility for permanent residence
The following are eligible under Regulation 15 of the Immigration (EEA) Regulations 2006:
EEA nationals who have resided in the UK for a continuous period of 5 years in accordance with the EU laws relating to free movement rights that were in force during the 5-year period;
