I love Banana nut bread. It’s one of my favorite bread recipes around. Ironically enough Banana bread is one of the most googled recipes out there. Because of it’s interesting history it’s no surprise. It’s truly one of my favorite comfort foods.  I also love make ahead recipes because who has time to put intricate meals together.  That’s why I love this recipe for overnight french toast. It’s got the hearty texture of a bagel with the sweet taste of  banana nut bread.  This is the perfect recipe for brunch or weekend breakfast. You can even make this ahead of time to make for the kids to have before school. 

It really is incredibly versatile.  If  you’re in the mood for a delicious french toast casserole than this is the perfect one. You can even substitute the milk with almond milk like my friend Lindsey did with her Almond milk French toast. 

This casserole is perfect for holiday brunch accompanied by some delicious mimosas. However you decide to serve will be perfection because this recipe is perfection.
