Cinnamon Banana French Toast

healing spices cookbookThis morning the Chef made French toast, using a recipe that he found last week, in the Toronto Sun. The recipe comes from the Healing Spices cookbook, by Dr. Bharant Aggarwal.

The French toast was awesome! It smelled great while it was cooking, and tasted delicious. We’ll definitely have it again.

If you like your French toast crispy, don’t let it absorb too much of the banana mixture, before cooking.

[Update: We had one piece left over, and froze it. I reheated it in the toaster, and it tasted almost as good as it did fresh from the frying pan.]
