    It sounds wonderful but you did not include the recipe for the apple cinnamon syrup.

    Making the banana bread was fun and it tasted delicious. Using the blender for making the egg mixture is completely pointless as you can just hand mix it. Also, if you want to add a bit more flavor to the "french toast" part I’d suggest looking up other egg mixtures. Usually though these will be a bit more unhealthy as they’ll use whole milk or heavy whipping cream.

    In the first step after preheating the oven (Add first four ingredients…. the coconut oil is the fourth ingredient).

    Blend on Medium Low (speed 3 or 4) for 30 seconds. For future reference, you can find this and other blend cycle conversions here: http://www.blendtec.com/blo…

    My blendtec does not have batter as option in presets. What do I press to get that setting.?
