take your Banana Bread to the next level with this This Banana Bread French Toast Recipe

Who doesn’t love banana bread?  It’s such a great way to use up bananas that have gotten a little too ripe to eat and makes a gift for neighbors, friend,s and co-workers.  (And of course- it’s just so yummy!) 

I made several loaves using my quick and easy Banana Bread Recipe recently.  This recipe uses four bananas and all those bananas make an incredibly moist and delicious bread.  

The best part of that Banana Bread Recipe is that it’s so easy, you don’t even need a mixer!

We still had quite a bit of banana bread leftover, (though the amount was shrinking with every pass through the kitchen…   I figured it would be in my best interest if I just got rid of the banana bread all at once.  

And the best way to get rid of leftover bread? Why, Banana Bread French Toast of course!
