  • Spray a skillet with non-stick spray and heat on medium-high.
  • Dip a slice of bread in the banana-egg mixture, coating it entirely.

Notes

  • Don't saturate the bread when dipping, just cover it with the custard mixture and then place it on an already hot skillet. You should hear a good sizzle!
  • To keep the finished slices of French toast from getting soggy while you are cooking the rest, place them on a rack positioned on a baking sheet in the warm oven (heat it to the lowest setting).
  • If you can't find oatmeal or oatnut bread, just use whatever bread you have on hand.
  • Top with butter and/or pure maple syrup and serve with fresh fruit!
