While everyone else is making the same loaf of banana bread and posting it to their Instagram, you can go one step further. Disney just revealed yet another popular theme park recipe, this time for chocolate peanut butter banana French toast.
The original dish is a seasonal item on the menu at Disney’s PCH Grill at Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel. The homemade version serves four and requires less than ten ingredients (not to mention no dealing with Disney crowds). Psst: The recipe calls for challah bread, which the Disney Parks Blog says “makes the best French toast,” and while they’re not wrong, you could definitely make it with any type of bread you have on hand. Here’s how:
Chocolate Peanut Butter French Toast
8 thick slices day-old challah bread
2 ripe bananas, peeled
¼ cup chocolate chips
½ cup creamy peanut butter
6 eggs, lightly beaten
¾ cup low-fat chocolate milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
Chocolate syrup and powdered sugar, optional
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Step 2: Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and place in a large bowl. Slice the bananas into ½-inch slices, and add to the bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Step 3: In a blender, combine the peanut butter, eggs, chocolate milk, cinnamon and salt. Process until smooth.
Step 4: Pour the egg mixture over the bread mixture. Stir gently until the bread cubes have absorbed the egg mixture.
Step 5: Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Bake until the top is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
Step 6: Before serving, drizzle with chocolate syrup and dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
