Banana Nut French Toast

I have always viewed French Toast as a blank slate for flavour. Which means, you can start with a basic recipe and add whatever spices or ingredients you want to change the whole dish around. Well today I was craving some really good banana bread. But my bananas were ripe, I didn't have the time to make a batter then wait for it to bake and I was out of flour. Sigh. So, why not take the flavours of my fave banana bread recipe and put it into some french toast.

Banana Nut French Toast

- 2 pieces of bread
- 2 eggs
- Splash of milk or cream
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of nutmeg
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar
- 1-2 bananas
- Handful of  toasted walnuts
- Chocolate Chips or Raisins (optional)

Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg for your batter.  Dip both sides of bread into batter and put into a pan at medium-high heat. Cook until lightly golden brown on each side.

In a separate bowl, chop bananas into slices and mix in brown sugar.

Top french toast with banana mixture, toasted nuts and maple syrup.

And there you have it! Banana bread craving satisfied.
