caramelized bananas  

french toast

With this recipe we will visit the European continent :):). The origin of french toast is first found in the Roman empire and they called it Pan Dulcis. The french call it Pain Perdu , because this dish is best made with old bread.  I made this one vegan and with a reduced quantity of sugar, because bananas have enough sugar in them . Since coconut nectar is low in the glycemic index and very nutritious it is a great substitute for sugar . I hope you enjoy making it with loved ones ;)
