As an avid baker and cook, you can only imagine my elation when I received notice that I was selected as one of the newest Gay Lea Brand Ambassadors!
Gay Lea has been a staple brand in our family kitchen for the longest time!
I remember making many of my grilled cheese sandwiches during my college years using Gay Lea Butter to my first attempt making a cake! As there were some hits and misses among the successful attempts, one thing’s for sure — licking the spoon was always a must! 
Fond Gay Lea memories, indeed.
Their dairy products are not only known because of the brand name but because they simply taste wonderful!
Their latest product to hit shelves is their Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Spreadables Butter with Canola Oil.
Check out that buttery, brown sugary and cinnamon goodness!
The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this product was FRENCH TOAST!
French Toast was not only a childhood favourite of mine but now it’s a family tradition for us to serve French Toast on Sunday mornings in our home. 
It’s much requested for breakfast but also for dessert after dinner too!
As much as I love the original way of making the beloved French Toast, I like to take it a notch higher for my family by including a couple of their favourite things.
For us, it’s bananas and chocolate (nutella!).

This is a truly decadent treat that your family and especially the kids will enjoy!
It’s also a nice treat for you too. Go ahead, indulge!

56 Comments on Chocolate Banana French Toast with Gay Lea’s Newest Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Spreadable Butter

  1. I have never heard of Gay Lea before! Sounds great.

    I had this kind of French Toast this summer when we stayed at a hotel for our vacation and it was to die for! Loved it.

  2. That French toast looks so good! I also think the butter would be great for cinnamon toast, which is one of my favourite pick-me-up-snacks.
