Indulge In {Coconut Banana Bread French Toast}

If you're a breakfast fein like I am, you are always looking for new ways to mix up the menu. Sometimes that mix up comes naturally. The other day I made a loaf of homemade banana bread to use up some rotten bananas I had laying around. After snacking on about half of it throughout the day, I got this brilliant idea. Why not coat it in a bit of coconut egg wash and toast it up in the pan? Completely genius idea if you ask me. Once it was all said and done, the dish was like a tropical vacation in my mouth. Without a doubt, it's my new favorite weekend breakfast. Here's the recipe....
