Dark Chocolate Banana French Toast

Breakfast foods--sometimes they're absolutely the most amazing thing. Butter, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, bananas, syrup and most importantly bread. French toast is the combo of everything that's delicious.  Plus it's super easy to make and super cheap. 1 serving makes about 6 slices of bread which leads to a cost per serving of under $2.

Start by beating 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk in a bowl. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and a pinch or two of cinnamon for taste.

Heat a saucepan with 1/4 tablespoon of butter.

Next is the bread: you can use a french bread loaf, a regular loaf or whatever type of bread you have.  We used sandwich bread because we didn't feel like going to the store.... instant gratification is what we're all about.

Dip the bread into the batter and then straight onto the saucepan.  Cook until each side is brown.  Think of it like a grilled cheese sandwich-but it's just one slice of bread.

Take off the heat, coat with banana slices, chocolate chips, powered sugar and sryup or whatever combo of that sounds good. It's delicious, and takes less than 5 minutes.
