An unique and delicious recipe that my mom used to make. It is so easy that even kids can help to make it. Serve it hot with butter or margarine and syrup.

Huge hit with the kids. I used all organic ingredients where I could whole grain bread and I served it with homemade maple-vanilla syrup. The kids thought this was out of sight. Like it was Christmas morning. It really was cute. NOTE: I did add a little milk to the egg dip.

Not enough egg to cover the bread as written. Much better with egg mixed with a splash of milk (and the vanilla) and BOTH sides of each slice cooked then adding the peanut butter and the banana after cooking; then assemble. Also we only needed 1/2 small banana for each set. No need to add more butter after cooking. With these changes 3-1/2 stars.

This is so easy to make and yummy. I've made it many times and sometimes for overnight guests too. Everyone was surprised to learn how simple it is. Make sure you use the softest of bread for this. (I only use half the butter and it's more than enough)

Yummy! This recipe is such a great idea. I used wheat bread and also added a dash of cinnamon to the egg mixture. This is very rich so be warned -- if you really want to indulge yourself or your kids add a few chocolate chips inbetween the banana slices. I'm sure I'll make this again but probably not for a while because it is so very rich. But it does add some nutritional value to plain old French toast with syrup.

Peanut butter and bananas are a great combination but sandwich them between french toast and you have a warm gooey treat for breakfast! I love peanut butter and any new way of eating it -I'll try it! I was a bit liberal with the vanilla and added a little milk sugar cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter. I just eyeballed the ingredients because I've been making french toast for years! Overall this was very good especially dusted with confectioners' sugar and drizzled with a little maple syrup!

I absolutely love this! I have always ever since I was little spread my pancakes and french toast with peanut butter before drenching them in syrup. So many people turn up their nose at the thought of peanut butter on these type of breakfast foods but when I have gotten anyone to agree to try it they have liked it more than they thought they would. This recipe is just a better version for me. I am so glad that I found it. Thanks!

This was very yummy! A treat for anytime! Great for kids and adults alike. I used cinnamon and nutmeg in the batter this time and it was good. I'll try vanilla next time. Thanks!

YUM!!! As a kid I would eat toasted bread spread with pb and drizzled with syrup. Wish I knew about this one! This is awesome! My picky toddler even loved it. It's a great nutritious treat to start the day off with.

I made this because I was out of milk and craving FT. It wasn't as good as I hoped. I love PB on my FT but the best part of that is when the PB mixes with the maple syrup. So it wasn't quite the same. 3 stars for simplicity and a good idea.
