Lately I’ve been on a banana kick. Whenever my bananas get too ripe, I put them in the freezer to use later in recipes. I have a dozen bananas sitting in my freezer so I’ve been thinking of ways to use them up. There is of course the delicious banana bread with streusel topping or Nutella Swirled Banana Bread– a few of my favorites.
I’m sure this has been done before, but I wanted to do something different with my banana bread recipe because it’s just so darn good. This Chocolate Chip Banana Bread French Toast is a yummy breakfast recipe made with my leftover banana bread!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread French Toast
(I used this banana bread recipe)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup smashed ripe bananas, about 3
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Mix in order and pour into greased bread pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes 1 hour. Keep in the fridge. (It is best to make the french toast with leftover banana bread, not freshly made.)
Cut the banana bread in thick slices and dunk in a mixture of egg and milk. Pan fry in 1 Tbls butter or oil until the outside is a bit crispy. (You want the outside crispy because the inside will be very melt in your mouth!) Serve with maple syrup or a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
