{Overnight} Banana {or any Fruit} Stuffed French Toast

So these were good. They were a little more mushy than I like {Because I let them sit overnight in the fridge}, but so yummy. And I love that you can prep it the night before. It's easy and very versatile, so you could put any fruit in the middle!

1 cup mashed banana
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
4 large egg whites
1 loaf French bread

Cut into 1 1/2 inch slices. Make slit to form pocket. Stuff with mashed bananas mixed with lemon juice.

Arrange bread in 9x13 pan. Whisk milk, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, and eggs, then pour over bread. Chill for at least 45 minutes {or overnight}, turning bread pieces over halfway through marinating time.

When ready to cook, melt 1-2 tsp butter/margarine {I used coconut oil} in skillet over med heat. Cook each 3 min on each side. Serve with maple syrup.

Note: I bet you could leave these in the 9x13 pan and bake them. I would try baking at 375 for 25 minutes and add more time if you need!
