You can use a variety of ideas to make it really fun and create your very own recipe.
Heat coconut oil in a medium skillet. Add bananas and sauté for 3 minutes. Add Nature's Eats Walnuts and honey. Continue to sauté for another minute, then remove from heat. Place to the side to cool.
In a medium bowl mix eggs, then add coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix until thoroughly blended, then pour into a shallow dish or pie plate.
Coat the inside of a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.
Take a slice of bread and dip into the egg mixture, thoroughly coating the bread on both sides. Place slice in skillet. Continue to add more slices, and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side or until done.
Top each slice with banana mixture and maple syrup. Serve immediately.
