Overnight Monkey French Toast Casserole

Without a doubt, the most requested recipe that I make on Saturday mornings is Monkey French Toast. It's one of my favorites too – you can't beat a treat like that on the weekends. It's super rich but still packs a lot of flavor. It really is such a great comfort food!

A couple of weeks ago, we had a ton of stale bread sitting around, so Noah and I got a little creative in the kitchen and made a little bit of a spin on the treat I've made for years – and I don't know if we'll be going back. This casserole spin on the recipe is so much easier to whip up the night before and just pop in the oven the next morning. It still has all of the awesome flavors of bananas and peanut butter, but doesn't require the mixing/dipping/pan frying that Monkey French Toast always does. I love that there's no need to stand over a stove for 30 minutes!

    That sounds beyond amazing Leslie. All that gooey peanut butter yummines drizzled over bananas and french toast. I would become slightly addicted

  2. This recipe is perfect for families especially. I love that it’s simple to make as well and won’t cost a fortune either. Great idea

  3. I have some peanut butter banana fans at my house! I’ll have to keep this in mind.

  4. I’m the only peanut butter fan in the house so I’ll just make this for me. It’s going to be so good! Thank you for sharing with us at Celebrate Your Story, and have a great weekend.
