Chocolate Chip, Banana and Coconut French Toast

Chocolate Chip, Banana and Coconut French Toast

Our weekend breakfasts are fancy breakfasts. Since we have a little bit of more time to play around in the kitchen, we make sweet treats to start off the day. Bunches and bunches of bananas are a staple in our home and we must find a way to incorporate them into as many meals as we can. This French toast always does the trick when you find lonesome banana in your fruit basket. The chocolate chips always add a nice kid-friendly touch to this very popular breakfast dish in our home.
