What do you do with bananas that no one wants to eat because they’re a little too soft and start to turn brown? I usually freeze them and put them in my smoothies or make banana bread out of them. It always makes me feel good when I don’t throw away food and we eat exactly what we buy.
Even with those good intentions, I found myself with leftover banana bread that was sitting uneaten for a little too long, which is how Banana Bread French Toast Bites came about. A quick breakfast with delicious results, and no leftovers! Success 🙂
- Leftover banana bread
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
This recipe is best with banana bread that is several days old. If you have freshly made bread, you may want to toast the slices in the oven (400 degrees) for about 5 minutes to take some of the moisture out of the bread. The pieces may fall apart if it's too moist when coating with the egg mixture.
I’m also imaging these bites as a dessert. How about adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream with some Dulce de Leche topping!
You might also want to turn these into French Toast & Fruit Kabobs for a brunch ideas.
I love weekends when I don’t have to be anywhere and I can sleep in late! Those are the days I enjoy making breakfast and sipping on several cups of coffee. What is your ideal weekend schedule?
