8slicesFrenchwhite or brioche bread (about ½-inch thick)
2medium ripe bananassliced (about 1 ½ cups)
Preheat oven to 400º F. Place bread slices on a baking sheet and bake 5–6 minutes to slightly dry out and crisp bread. Remove bread and turn off oven.
In large pan melt half of butter on medium heat. Add bananas and 2-tablespoons maple syrup, sauté 3–4 minutes until softened. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and 1-teaspoon vanilla.
Evenly spread mixture on 4 slices of bread, and top with remaining bread slices to create sandwiches.
In a flat bowl whisk together milk, eggs, cinnamon, 1-tablespoon maple syrup and 1-teaspoon vanilla. Dip both sides of sandwiches in liquid (allow each side to sit about 15 seconds to soak up).
Melt remaining butter in large skillet or pan over medium heat. Toast sandwiches, 3–4 minutes per side, until cooked and golden brown. Serve immediately, extras can be stored sealed in fridge and served leftover.
