Banana nutella French toast recipe

This easy stuffed French toast will make the whole family excited to eat breakfast. Thick slices of bread are spread with Nutella which is a chocolate spread made by blending hazelnuts and chocolate together and has the same consistency of peanut butter. Freshly sliced bananas really pair well with the chocolate flavor of the Nutella so I added slices inside the French toast to give this dish a little bit of texture.
