Strawberry- Banana French Toast Casserole

Breakfast is always a rushed endeavor on weekdays but when I have time on the weekends I love making something that is yummy and doesn’t make me feel bad giving to my kids.  This recipe is a favorite.  It is loaded with strawberries and bananas. You use your favorite bread (this recipe is with gluten free bread) and the almond milk makes it dairy free also.

About Kids Tummy Troubleshttps://kidstummytroubles.wordpress.comI am a mom, wife and a physician. I am the owner and founder of Staten Island Pediatric GI, a private practice which is located in Staten Island, NY and serves the NY/NJ area. I was born and raised in this area. I love working in my practice but want to be able to reach and help much more than just those patients and families that I am able to see in the office. I am working on a cookbook, trying to educate regarding celiac disease and many other child stomach conditions.
