Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Sandwiches

This idea popped into my head as I was making Angie a peanut butter banana sandwich the other day.  I thought, this would be really good with a few chocolate chips mixed in.  And then I thought, it would be even better if it were grilled so the chocolate chips melted.  And then I took it one step further and thought, why not make it French toast on the outside too?  And so the chocolate peanut butter banana French toast sandwich was born.

All you need is:
Peanut butter
2 eggs
chocolate chips
1 banana
1/2 cup milk (I substituted almond milk because it's what I had)

First, crack your eggs into a shallow bowl.  Add the milk and stir.

Set the bowl aside.  Now it's time to make your sandwiches.  (While you are making the sandwiches, it's a good time to heat up your griddle on the stove.  Set on medium heat and spray with cooking spray.)
Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on both pieces of bread. Slice the banana into very thin slices and place over the peanut butter.  Sprinkle some chocolate chips on top.

Put the second piece of bread on top of the one with the bananas and chocolate chips, peanut butter side down.  Carefully dip the sandwich in the milk and egg mixture (both sides) and place on the heated griddle.

Cook evenly on both sides.  Repeat this process for as many sandwiches as you need.

Sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
This can be eaten as a sandwich, or with a knife and fork.  You can put syrup on top if desired, but it really doesn't need it.  This makes a delightful Saturday morning breakfast (I know it did for us!)
