Peanut Butter-and Banana- Stuffed French Toast

From The Deen Bros. Y'All Come Eat

1/2 C granola
8 slices white bread
1/4 C peanut butter
2 tsp honey
1 banana, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 C whole milk
2 large eggs
1 1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter
Maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350. Place the granola in a shallow bowl; set aside.
Spread each slice of bread with peanut butter. Drizzle honey evenly over peanut butter. Divide the banana slices among four slices of the bread; top with the remaining bread, peanut butter slices down. Remove the crusts and tightly pinch the edges of each sandwich together to seal.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Soak each sandwich in the egg mixture for 5 seconds. Roll the edges of each sandwich in the granola.
In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches, working in batches if necessary; cook about 2 minutes per side or until golden. Transfer the sandwiches to a baking sheet; bake for 10 minutes. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
