Foodie Baby: Banana Frenchie Toast Sticks

I need healthy, filling, fast options and preferably things I can make in advance (while Pip helps of course) that can be frozen for future breakfasts during the week! I experimented with a pretty basic french toast recipe this morning and added some smashed over-ripe banana. It worked really well and the toddler-person seemed to really enjoy it! I also named it "Banana Frenchie Toast" in honor of her island home where bananas AND Frenchies grow abundantly haha!  Here's how I did it:


5 pieces of 100% stone ground whole wheat bread
3 eggs, beaten
1 and 1/2 over-ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
some butter and oil for the skillet

1.  Mix all of the ingredients except the bread together and beat until fairly smooth. The banana will make it a little lumpy.
 2.  Dredge the pieces of whole wheat toast thoroughly in the mixture until the pieces are very saturated.
 3.  Cook until both sides are golden brown.
 4.  Cover the surface of one side with just a little pure maple syrup.
 5.  Cut into appropriate-sized pieces for your little one and watch them enjoy!! Then comes just a little more work, and your done...

 6.  Cut the remaining banana french toast into strips.
 7.  Label a gallon-sized freezer bag with the date and what is inside and freeze for later use! Ta daaaa!
