Banana and Chocolate Chip Baked French Toast

Have you been over to Damn Delicious written by my friend Chung-Ah?  If not, you are missing out!  Chung-Ah is super sweet (she even sent me chips from Trader Joe’s once because I couldn’t get them), and always has something amazing to share.  Don’t miss her Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes, Southwest Quinoa Sliders with Avocado Cream Sauce, or Hoisin Asian Meatballs.

Hi everyone! It’s Chung-Ah from Damn Delicious, and I have the honor of guest posting here for Erin. She posts the most scrumptious dishes and I’m constantly adding her recipes to my to-make list, and I think I need to start with here Cheeseburger Soup. Mmmmmm.

But today, instead of a soup, I bring you my favorite kind of breakfast: baked french toast. This kind of french toast can actually be made the night before, and is so incredibly easy to whip up. Once everything is prepped and in order, you can pop this baby into the oven the morning of and you’ll have enough to feed a group of 6 without having to slave away in the kitchen. Easy enough, right?


Made with cinnamon swirl bread, ripe bananas and mini chocolate chips, this is by far the perfect blend of flavors, especially for breakfast. Plus, with some freshly squeezed orange juice and a side of bacon, this may just be my favorite kind of breakfast meal yet!
